Using the "$" as part of a cell reference
Could someone please explain in more detail the usage of above. I have seen this usage in:
=AVERAGE($6:$6) to yield a dynamic average across row 6. This does not seem to work in a Column setup. I am looking for more details, links, etc. Thank You. Alan

Hi the use of $ is to change a formula absolute to relatvie, you could use it
in a Column as =AVERAGE($A:$A) or in specific range or unique cell hth regards from Brazil Marcelo "awy32" escreveu: Could someone please explain in more detail the usage of above.

Using the "$" as part of a cell reference
Recent posting by Kassie...........
The $ sign is used to make a cell address an absolute one. If you copy any formula that refers to a cell address, say =SUM(A1:A10) to the next row, Excel changes the formula to read =SUM(A2:A11). If however, you copy a formula reading =SUM($A1:A10) , Excel changes the formula to Copy down =SUM($A2:A11). Copy right =SUM($A1:B10) If you enter the formula as =SUM($A$1:A10), it will change to Copy down =SUM($A$1:A11), Copy right =SUM($A$1:B10) The formula =SUM(A$1:A10, will change to Copy down=SUM(A$1:A11), Copy right =SUM(B$1:B10) If you enter it as =SUM($A$1:$A$10), and you copy it to any other location on your spreadsheet, it will still read =SUM($A$1:$A$10) In other words, the $ sign in front of a column reference loks subsequent copies to that column. The $ in front of a row reference, locks subsequent copies to that row. You can also insert the $ before the latter parts of the formula, to lock either the column or row reference, eg =SUM(A1:$A10), which can change as follows: Copy down =SUM(A2:$A11) Copy right =SUM(B1:$A10) =SUM(A1:A$10) will change to Copy Down =SUM(A2:A$10) Copy right =SUM(B1:B$10) Gord Dibben MS Excel MVP On Thu, 29 Jun 2006 18:56:08 +0100, awy32 wrote: Could someone please explain in more detail the usage of above.

Along with Gord's explanation you might want to see what the F4 key will do.
Type =A1, then before hitting Enter, hit the F4 key four times and notice the reference changes. HTH Regards, Howard "awy32" wrote in message ...
