That error appeared because you performed an illegal function.

Here is the solution on how to put values on every cell in a column without doing it manually.

Automatically put values 1-10 in column A row 2 to row 11:

In column A row 3, type =SUM(A2+1), as shown below:

Click on column A row 3 then press CTRL + C

Move cursor to row 4 then drag it down to row 11 by pressing SHIFT + ARROW DOWN then hit ENTER.

The result will be like this:

Now, enter the value 1 in column A row 2 then hit ENTER.

The succeeding cells after row 2 will automatically change its values after hitting ENTER.

This is the solution if you need to input extremely numerous values.

Excel sheets need accurate numbers and formulas to perform its duties. Just like numbering, counting, adding and to name a few.

What you want is to do counting from 1 up to 10 all the way down, right?

Best thing to do is to drag the first cell after highlighted, then a tiny black square will be shown. See screenshot for full understanding what I meant.

Then drag all the way to the bottom up, it auto-counts the numbers according to the area where you've stopped.

Easy enough and not so complicated. It makes your life easier without formulas and confusing a+b+c to add it all up.
