### Easily select every other (nth) row or column in a specified range in Excel

Kutools for Excel’s Select Interval Rows & Columns utility can help Excel users quickly select every other (or every nth) row/column from a selected range with ease.

We can add a help column to identify every 5/n row, and then filter these rows and add borders for them in Excel.

Step 1: In a blank column besides original range, type Rows into the first cell, enter formula =MOD(ROW(),5)=0 into the second cell (Cell E2 in our case), and then drag the Fill Handle to the range you want to apply this formula.

Note: In the formula =MOD(ROW(),5)=0, 5 means every 5th row, and you can change it based on your needs.

Step 2: Select the Rows column, and then click the Data > Filter.

Step 3: In the Rows column, click the arrow in the first cell, and then uncheck all options except the TURE option, and click the OK button. See below screen shot:

Step 4: Select all filtered out rows except the heading row, and then click the arrow beside Border button > All Borders on the Home tab. See screen shot:

Step 5: Now delete the Rows column, and you will see all borders are added to every 5th row at once.

We can also apply the Conditional Formatting command to border every 5/n row in Excel.

Step 1: Select the range you want to border every 5/n row in Excel.

Step 2: Click the Conditional Formatting > New Rule on the Home tab. See screen shot below:

Step 3: Now in the New Formatting Rule dialog box, you need:

(1) Click to highlight Use a formula to determine which cells to format in the Select a Rule Type box;

(2) In the Format values where this formula is true box, enter the formula =MOD(ROW(),5)=0 ;

(3) Click the Format button.

Step 4: In the Format Cells dialog box, go to the Border tab, specify a line style, click to highlight the Outline button, and click the OK button.
