## 6 Easy Methods to Repeat Cell Value X Times in Excel

Whenever we are working with datasets in **Excel **worksheets, it becomes essential to repeat cell values as many times as we need. This is for various reasons. We can do that manually. But that’s tiresome and can take a considerable amount of time. So, we can create simple formulas inserting built-in functions to perform the task. In this article, we’ll show you all the methods to repeat cell value **X **times. To illustrate, we’ll use the following dataset as an example. For instance, the dataset contains** 3 Products**. Here, we’ll repeat the products according to the **Repeat Time**.

### 1. Repeat Cell Value X Times with Helper Column and VLOOKUP Function in Excel

In our first method, we will take the help of helper columns and **the VLOOKUP function**. This function searches for a value in a range. Then, it returns a cell value from the specified column. Therefore, follow the steps below to perform the task.

**STEPS:**

- First, we’ll input
**1**in cell**B5**of the helper column.

- Then, select cell
**B6**. - Type the formula:

`=B5+D5`

- Subsequently, press
**Enter**. - Use
**AutoFill**to complete the rest.

- Again, take another helper column.
- Next, type
**1**in cell**E5**and apply**AutoFill**to cell**E9**. - We’ll get
**5**in cell**E9**which is the sum of repeat time.

- Finally, choose cell
**F5**. - Insert the formula:

`=VLOOKUP(E5,$B$5:$C$8,2)`

- Use
**AutoFill**to return other products. - In this way, you can easily repeat cell values.

org.Resize(xNum, 1).Value = xValue
Set org = org.Offset(xNum, 0)
Next
End Sub
```
