How do you get an Exell Spreadsheet to count up to 4,294,967,296 in Decimal without having to type each Formula into each cell if this is possible? I tried =IF(A2=INT(A2),0,LEN(MID(A2-INT(A2),FIND(".",A2,1),LEN(A2)-FIND(".",A2,1)))), but it didn't help much and I could only find three pages of relevant answers in my webpage search using Google Chrome. I'm using LibreOffice actually and not Microsoft Excel because I can't afford the subscription.

Special copy: copy formula. Should automatically change cell values as if you used the copy handle, although I'm not certain on that.

Thank and sorry I should have been more specific. By that I mean I'm trying to create a Non-Printable ASCII character chart and I want a formula or function that will automatically fills the rows in decimal up 4,294,967,296. Then I want it to count up to automatically fill the rows up to 4,296,967,296 in Octal, Hexidecimal, ASCII, and Binary. I don't think this is the right forum to ask, but where should I ask such a question if not here on hard forum. I did up to 255 so far, but it was all manuallly and very tedious, which if I actually knew what I was doing it would even be necessary to fill each cell manually in dot docx using libre writer.

I would think you would use a macro.

Example - this fills the rows 1 -> 10, of the A column, with it's row number.

Rich (BB code):
sub testFill

    dim document   as object
    dim dispatcher as object

    dim maxVal as integer
    maxVal = 10 '!! change this to what ever you want.
   
    document   = ThisComponent.CurrentController.Frame
    dispatcher = createUnoService("com.sun.star.frame.DispatchHelper")
   
    dim args1(0) as new com.sun.star.beans.PropertyValue
    dim args2(0) as new com.sun.star.beans.PropertyValue

    dim iCount as integer
   
    for iCount = 1 to maxVal
        args1(0).Name = "ToPoint"
        args1(0).Value = "$A$" + cstr(iCount)  '!! $A is the A column and it appends the row number to get the specific cell
        dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:GoToCell", "", 0, args1())
   
   
        args2(0).Name = "StringName"
        args2(0).Value = CStr(iCount)
        dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:EnterString", "", 0, args2())
    next iCount  
   

   msgbox "Completed!"
end sub
