    Hi Ziad,

    Yes, but you'll have to make sure that the below conditions aren't met.

    The short version! It will be auto-filled with the same format if at least two rows before or after is the same format.

    More info:

    If the formula structure is the same above/below the Formula Autofill will add the formula(s) automatically.

    Conditions That Trigger Formula Autofill

    You’ll see formulas populate automatically when you type in a newly inserted or blank row that is:

    • Directly between two others that contain the same formula in adjacent cells.
    • At the topmost of the sheet if it’s above two rows that have the same formula in adjacent cells. (This includes rows inserted from a form.)
    • At the bottommost of the sheet if it’s below two rows that have the same formula in adjacent cells. (This includes rows inserted from a form.)
    • Above or below a single row that is between blank rows and has formulas.


    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,
