Hello.

I've got this formula in cell A2, and it returns "$A$2" (without quotes).

=ADDRESS(ROW(),COLUMN())

How can I tweak the formula to return "A2" (without the dollar signs and quotes)?

thx

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.

Cell Address w/o $ signs

Thanks! :)

I just need a column of cells that will serve as an index.

Hi

Try

Code:
=substitute(ADDRESS(ROW(),COLUMN()),"$","")

That means one more function. Maybe you had something like this

=SUBSTITUTE(CELL("address",A2),"$","")

in mind.
