Excel Facts

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.
goto TOOLS>OPTIONS and select the VIEW tab, then tick the box for formulas in the bottom left corner

Hi, Mark

to display all formulas
menu tools/options: tab display (first tab): check "formulas"

for a single formula: add a quote before it

kind regards,
Erik
