Entering Repeat Cell Text

Type some names into cells B3, B4, B5, and B6 (for example, Julie, Nancy, Sid, and Jasmel) and press Enter.

In cell B7, type the first letter of one of the original four names—for example, S. The name Sid automatically fills the cell. Press Enter to accept the entry.

In cell B8, type the first letter of another name—for example, J. No name automatically fills the cell because the inferred name could be either Julie or Jasmel.
