Table Formula to automatically fill in when adding a row

Posted on 2013-11-22
Last Modified: 2013-12-02
I created a lookup formula on a Table.   It is pulling from another table to populate the field.  The formula works fine however, I would like to populate on the next row.  What am I doing wrong.  I have attached a sample file.

=INDEX('Bank Info'!$B$7:$E$10,MATCH([@[Account Number]],TblBankAccount[Acct number],0),4)

Thanks, Eric

You can use control-d to copy the formula from the cell above.

Or you could do something like this:

=iferror(INDEX('Bank Info'!$B$7:$E$10,MATCH([@[Account Number]],TblBankAccount[Acct number],0),4),"")

and copy it down to all the cells down to 500 or whatever. It will show blank unless there is a result

There is an option in Excel Options > Advanced for:

"Extend data range formats and formulas"

Ensure this is enabled.

If the area in question is "defined" as a table, it should do it automatically.

I think this is the issue, can't find the option in Excel 2010 Options Advanced.
