Hello fellow Excel Users,

I am looking for a way to have a the row number change when copying formulas horizontally. By copying I mean dragging the little box on the right hand side of the formula cell to the right. I did not know if there was an easy way to have the row reference number instead of the column letter. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
turtlepokerman
 

Excel Facts

Using Function Arguments with nested formulas
If writing INDEX in Func. Arguments, type MATCH(. Use the mouse to click inside MATCH in the formula bar. Dialog switches to MATCH.
Code:
      -A-- -B-- -C-- -D-- -E-- -F-- -G--
  1   $A$1 $A$1 $A$2 $A$3 $A$4 $A$5 $A$6
  2   $A$2                              
  3   $A$3                              
  4   $A$4                              
  5   $A$5                              
  6   $A$6

In B1 and copy right,

=INDEX($A:$A, COLUMNS($A1:A1))

Nice that worked. I'm surprised that Excel has not created a non-absolute symbol yet, so that we do not have to go through the sometimes confusing INDEX function.

Thanks
