change the first three cells

12/7/2010 11:10
12/7/2010 11:14
12/7/2010 11:17

now select these three cells and drag down.

voila, you should be done.

Just Type this and then drag it down

12/7/2010 11:10
12/7/2010 11:13

The cells will auto populate.

Nothing. It will populate automatically.

What results are you getting?

if simple-drag doesn't work, try keeping CTRL pressed all the way. sometimes CTRL key works as a toggle... :)
