Coping formulas

Posted by R.Brayton on July 06, 2001 12:40 PM

Hi, I have a formula: =(ABS(A1+B1)=$C$1) My question is, how can I make this formula apply to all the rows on a work sheet without rewriting the formula for each row. Thanks for your help.

You should be able to copy and paste the formula as is, and it should apply. If you want the qualifier to change ($C$1), you can remove the "$". If this does not work for you, give me some more info so I can see how you are using this formula.

Copy the cell that has the formula, then highlight all the rows that you want to have the formula apply to. Then right-click on the highlighted portion, click "paste special," then under paste click "formulas." Hope that's what you wanted.
