    Enter the value 1 in cell A1

    enter the formula =A1+1 in cell A2

    Copy cell A2 to A3:A100 and the numbers will populate.

    Alternatively, Enter the value "1" in cell A1.

    Then select Edit, Fill, Series from the menu. Change "Series In" to "Columns". Enter a stop value, say "100".
