Hi Experts excel 2007

I want to to add in cell a3 =a2+1 and scroll all the way down so I increment the numbers by 1. However, if I delete a8 row the formula below cell a8 come with #ref errors how do you get around this.

Use this formula:

A3 = OFFSET(A3,-1,0)+1

By only referencing the same row the references won't get mangled when deleting rows.
