In previous versions of Excel, I have been able to let say…

Customer Question
Hello, in previous versions...

Hello, in previous versions of Excel, I have been able to let say for instance

Technician's Assistant: What's the make and model of your computer? And what version of Excel are you using?

I want to be able to use drag-and-drop to have Excel automatically fill the lower cells in increments.For example I enter:
1
2When I drag the fill handle I want to get:
1
2
3
4
5What I get:
1
2
2
2
2

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

My appologies, I never realized that the chat has already went through. I am using windows 10 with Excel 2016 This function is something that I have been able to work on previous versions of Excel.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Microsoft Office Expert to know before I connect you?

Let me re-write this in a text editor and re-submit so that it makes more sense. This box is so small I'm having trouble entering it properly.

when you are dragging make sure you have both cells selected or hilighted, to do this press the shift key and click the 1st cell then the 2nd cell, then once both are higlighted then do the drag fill

That does not work. I already mentioned in my question that I had both selected before dragging. Also does not seem to matter if the cells are formatted as general or number.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I would allow you to remote connect, but not at a cost of $52 for something so simple.
Microsoft Office Technician: The-PC-Guy, Computer Manager replied 5 months ago

i will connect remotely for an extra $20, less than 1/2 the price.
