Copy and Pasting Formulas are incrementing
"anickless" wrote in message
Hi i am trying to paste formulas from one column to another, however when
do a paste - special - formulas it seems in increment the cell
with the formulas
e.g the correct formula would be A1
but when I paste formulas it comes up as B1
what is going on here?
That's correct behaviour. if you want the formulae to stay EXACTLY the same
you need to put absolute references in the original.
I.e if your formula is A1*B1 and you need that to stay the same then change
it to $A$1*$B$1. If you only want A1 to stay then same then put $A$1*B1 and
the converse if you want B1 to be unchanged.
Hope that's clear as mud!
