Drag and Fill weirdness

I have a really strange issue that I have never seen before.
I am looking to drag and fill a formula into the cells below.
The formula fills down and correctly changes the cell reference in the formula as you would expect.
But the actual cell value being displayed is just copying the initial value showing on the first cell.

It is almost as if I have enabled some sort of 'Paste Values' default on the drag and fill.

Has anybody ever experienced this before?
And do you know how to make it stop?

thanks
Mark

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

Maybe is it just a problem of calculation mode that would be set to manual? Have you try to recalculate your worksheet?

calculation mode may be manual, change it to automatic..

Yes that was the problem!

Thank you.

Do you know if there is a shortcut key combination that I might have pressed to move this from automatic to manual as everything was fine yesterday?

But thank you for solving that little problem
