Copying & pasting formulas

Hi, I have a range of cells (3 x 6) the 1st cell is

O7 and has the following formula in it =Sheet!A3 then
O8 is blank
O9 and has the following formula in it =Sheet!A6
O10 is blank
O11 and has the following formula in it =Sheet!A9
O12 is blank

P7 and has the following formula in it =Sheet!A4 then
P8 is blank
P9 and has the following formula in it =Sheet!A7
P10 is blank
P11 and has the following formula in it =Sheet!A10
P12 is blank

Q7 and has the following formula in it =Sheet!A5 then
Q8 is blank
Q9 and has the following formula in it =Sheet!A8
Q10 is blank
Q11 and has the following formula in it =Sheet!A11
Q12 is blank

These cells all fall under 1 date is there a quick way I can copy then across to the next date? As whenI do try and copy them across instead of the first formula in cell R7 being B3 its coming up as AC3,AC6,AC9 instead of what I need which would be A3,A6,A9

Any ideas?? Thanks…

if A1 contains =sheet2!A1 and you copy A1 to A4 it will contain =sheet2!A4 that is how excel works....

are you familar with offset and match functions ?

I've not come across offsetting, how does that work?

Thanks

=offset(\$a\$1,4,7) means starting from A1 go down 4 and along 7 so it returns what is in G5

I think you will need to do the copy with a macro - Fluff ! we need you !!!!
