I recently answered in Excel, where my input was based on the user copying a cell's contents via drag and past over multiple cells, where the input n was the final cell to which was dragged, which I thought was acceptable in the question: "You can get n any way." yet also "Standard loopholes are denied."

Am I incorrect in assuming that this form of input is valid?

Yes

Since the user input (an integer number) can be found on the left hand column, dragging to the equivalent n value for the number of rows is an acceptable form of input.

Regardless of whether this suspicious input method limit should be allowed in general, it is clearly not valid for the challenge in question: answers are required to count at least until 264; whereas Excel has a limit of 220 rows.
