This began as a macro method then I thought it might work simpler with columnar copy and paste.
The macro method is looking easier.
BEGIN the macro explaination here:
A text file has urls in it like this:http://tld.com/portfolio/view/3667
I'd like to copy the URL and increment the
number at the end beginning at any number
and increment to any number
If you have friends on the forum who are sharp with the macro ask them if
they'll take a whack at this.
Also maybe you know of a forum which deals with macro logic. I could use
I haven't thought it through all the way yet. My goal is to make the method
have no limits.
If I create columns and copy and paste then it's not using the MACRO.
however it's more 'work' as we seen lots of columns and rows.
What I like about using a MACRO is that there's only 10 digits in each
I think it will work this way:
Begin the macro by placing the cursor at 'the beginning' .
Then start the macro .. it will place 0 and then move down one row and place a
1. Then move down and place a 2 and so on.
What I like about this method is it's 'done' the moment you place the
cursor and start the macro.
I also began a copy and paste columns .. see this bit next to understand.
I won't finish this using the columns. After beginning it .. it's simply 'too much
work' .. haha.
So if you 'd like to weigh in on the macro . have some fun
you can send me an email here. or at

put that all together for the right address.
Explain the columnar copy and paste method
Begin the column copy and paste method.
The method I began with is this:
See example at bottom of this page*
Make a column of 0, 1, 2, etc to 9. *(1)
Then copy it using Alt-C (columnar mode)
Then I'll try to paste another column next to each column.
It works, so, then a macro isn't the only way to do this.
What I like about macro is it's playing my thoughts back..
I think that's 'OK' and useful.. especially if we can get macros into lots of
So I'm able to copy 1 column of 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
where 0 is 10, 0's vertically, 1 is 10, 1's, vertically.
(imagine 10, 0's, 10, 1's, and so on.
THEN them into 10 columns sideways like SO:
again imagine 10 of each digit
0 0 > and so on so it's 10 digits down and 10 digits sideways.
This can be done with columnar (Alt-C) copy and paste.
