Hi Dave,

I'm a veteran Excel-er, but very new to Calc.
I've had to invent some syntax in the following question - hope you can
follow it.

In Excel, to set up a row of column headings (years say), you would do:
A1 => 1965 [Enter]
B1:AX1 => formula(=A1+1) [Control+Enter]

and B1 would become set to 1966, ... , AX1 would become set to 2013.
What is the equivalent syntax in Calc?

You need to mark the range B1:AX1 in a way, that B1 is your active cell. You can do it by dragging back from AX1 to B1, or while B1 is active write the range B1:AX1 into the name field (leftmost from the input line) and hit Enter. Then click into the input line and write =A1+1 and finalize input with ALT+Enter.

For small ranges I use the simple drag copying that was already mentioned here. For large ranges, sometimes more than 10000 rows, I use the way to mark a range via the name field.

Kind regards
