Is there an easy way to fill a series of filenames in Excel? I'm using Excel 2013.

For example:

Filename1.ext
Filename2.ext
Filename3.ext..

etc..

I have hundreds and I was looking for a shortcut. :)

Thanks!!

You can try this formula in row 1 and copied down

="Filename"&ROW()&".ext"

Or you could start:
A1: "Filename1"
A2: "Filename2"
A3: "Filename3"

Then use the normal Excel Autofill by dragging down.

You would then use the following formula in column B:
=A1&".ext"
