Formulas in Excel XP are not valid in 2000. Is there a way to make them valid in excel 2000? They seem to change automatically.

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.

#Value! is in the cell where the following formula is =+GETPIVOTDATA("Sum of June YTD Actuals",$A$70)

And what happens when you use...

=GETPIVOTDATA($A$70,"Sum of June YTD Actuals")

In XP you type the + and select a total cell in the pivot table and XP automatically creates the formula =+GETPIVOTDATA("Sum of June YTD Actuals",$A$70) where the formula in 2000 use to be +C78. A70 is a blank cell. But it works in XP and in 2000 they get #Value!

The plus sign has nothing to do with your #VALUE! error. Your GETPIVOTDATA arguments are in the wrong order. Take a closer look at my recommendation above and see the Excel Help topic for "GETPIVOTDATA worksheet function".

Your syntax =getpivotdata($A$70,"Sum of June YTD Actuals") works in 2000 and not XP.
His syntax =+getpivotdata("Sum of June YTD Actuals",$A$70) works in XP and not in 2000.

Since the syntax for the getpivotdata command is different in XP and 2000, is there a way to turn off the way xp automaticlly uses the getpivotdata command and just selects the cell like in 2000?
