I have a spreadsheet that I want to autofill the column called Seq (below) with 10,20,30 but I want to reset to 10 based on a different Part ID.  Is this possible?

Part ID                                        Seq      Req

not with autofill, but you can use a formula and drag it down.

Thanks,  I had to tweak it just a bit...   =COUNTIF($A$1:A1,A1)*10
