Default Copy the formula by dragging but down but calculate by going left

Hi,

If I enter the formula:
=$C$1-E75 and copy down by dragging the column will remain E and the rows will change to 76,77,78 etc.

I need the opposite so when I drag down the row remains 75 but the column changes to F, G, H ...

I hope that my request was clear.

If that is possible please let me know.

Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Frank Gashi

try:
=$C$1-INDEX($E$75:$XFD$75,,ROW(A1))

Row(A1) is the column of the INDEX and will be increased by one when you
copy the formula down.
