Autofill drag with alphanumeric?

Hi, can Airtable auto fill with alphanumeric sequence? For example, my sequence goes UF-3101, UF-3102, UF-3103, etc. When I highlight the first two cells and drag it down, it just repeated the UF-3101, UF-3102 over and over instead of adding +1.

Anyway airtable can do this?


Welcome to the community, Benjamin! :smiley: It works for numeric fields, but not for single line text fields. If this sequence is going to continue indefinitely, I would suggest using a formula.

First make an autonumber field, which will give you an automatic numeric sequence beginning at 1. Then add a formula field with this formula (replace “Autonumber” with the name you gave your autonumber field):

"UF-" & (3100 + Autonumber)

No need to drag anything, as Airtable will continue incrementing the number each time you make a new record.
