Excel Facts

What is the fastest way to copy a formula?
If A2:A50000 contain data. Enter a formula in B2. Select B2. Double-click the Fill Handle and Excel will shoot the formula down to B50000.

If I understand correctly, I think that you would have to:
1. Manually Copy then Paste Special...|Values, or
2. Use VBA to replace the formula with its result.

Hi
As far as I know -
(1) A formula in a cell is executed right away to give a value or an error.
(2) A formula in a cell never can act on another cell .
What have you in mind?

thanks for the replies. i thought it may be a long short on my side.

i was trying to find a lazy way of getting around some circular references in a gorilla of a spreadsheet.

i guess i should fix these correctly as they are indicative of an underlying problem.
