If you want to create an array of numbers, you can use a combination of the ROW function, the INDIRECT function or OFFSET function or INDEX function or MIN function to create a new formula.

For example, to create an array of numbers like {1;2;3;4;5}, you can use the following formulas:

=ROW(B1:B5)-MIN(ROW(B1:B5))+1

create an array of numbers3

=ROW(INDIRECT(“1:5”))

create an array of numbers1

=ROW(INDEX(A:A,1):INDEX(A:A,5))

create an array of numbers2

={1;2;3;4;5}

=ROW(B1:B5)

create an array of numbers4

When you entered the above formula into a single cell, it just display only the first element in the array. And you need to press F9 to display the actual array result in the formula bar.
