[/FONT]Hi guys,

I need to copy/paste cells M1:V14 to Sheet2 but have the absolute references point to the cells from the original sheet

Is there a way to do this?

Hi danhendo888,

Try "anchoring" the cell references before you copy them - so A1 becomes $A$1 for example. Pressing F2 and then F4 while on the cell with the formula can do this for you.

My cell references are already absolute references.
So when I copy and paste them to a different sheet, it references the new sheet and not the original sheet.

Is there a way around this so that $A$1 for example, when copied from Sheet1 and pasted to Sheet2, would reference $A$1 from Sheet1 and not Sheet2?

You need to have the sheet name as part of formula even for the sheet it's on (which Excel excludes by default) i.e. in Sheet1 you'd have this:

=Sheet1!$A$1
