    Dragging Formula down through merged cells

    In Sheet1 I want to drag a simple cell reference formula (=Sheet2!B4) down through some merged cells. But when I do that the formula changes by the number of rows that make up the merged cells. What I need is the reference only increase by one 1....rather than the number of rows the the merged cell is.

    On the attached example is the final outcome of what it should look like on Sheet1. I need a formula in column G to refence the list of Dates on Sheet2, in order as they're listed. So I need G4 in Sheet1 to pull what's in B4 on Sheet2 (1/5/2021), then when I drag the formula down on Sheet1 to the next merged cell, G8 will equal the next date on the list in column B in Sheet2 (which is cell B5 - 1/7/2021).

    Hope that makes sense.

    Thank you!

    Well, most people here will tell you how evil merged cells are

    Like anything else, they have their uses (usually)

    If you have to use them, then the easiest way I can think of is to use a helper column

    Maybe someone else will have a better idea

    In merged cells which include cell G4:
    =INDIRECT("Sheet2!B" & INT(ROW()/4)+3)
    copy down.

    Or likewise with:
    =OFFSET(Sheet2!$B$3,ROW()/4,0)

    or:
    =INDEX(Sheet2!$B$4:$B$8,ROW()/4)

    Everyone: If I've helped and you can't be bothered to acknowledge it, I can't be bothered to look at further posts from you.

    yes. I liked the Index one.

    That was perfect.

    Thanks so much!
