Excel: increment numbers in reference

Last Modified: 2018-02-02
Hello Experts,

I have a column named: image_ref and I have a list of references folders, what I want to achieve is this :

I have like 50 references and would like to have them in order automatically without typing one by one.

The first reference starts with AJ001
the next should be AJ001 and third AJ003, so you guessed the rest, right? :)

How to that automatically with Excel?

Thank you
