How to transpose reference while auto fill down/right in Excel?
In general, when we drag auto fill handle right from a cell, the column reference will be changed horizontally, on the other hand, the row reference will change vertically while dragging fill handle down. However, in this article, I introduce a formula which can help you transpose the reference while dragging fill handle down and right in Excel as below screenshot shown.
To transpose the reference while filling right or down, you can apply a simple Transpose function.
Select the cells you want to fill formula, and enter this formula =TRANSPOSE(Sheet2!$B$1:B12) in the formula bar, press Shift + Ctrl + Enter key. See screenshot:
In the formula, B1:B12 is the range you want to transpose, you can change it as you need.
