I am trying to copy formula for one worksheet onto another within the same book
I wanting to take the whole row but when I paste it the formulas alter to refer to the cells upon the new worksheet.

How can I get them to reference the cell from where they are copied as in

!sheet blah blah blah?

Thx

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.

Have you tried Edit-->Paste Special-->Paste link?

thx I have now :)

I am sure this used to happen automatically though. Is there a way I could have disabled this?

Re: (STILL)unable to copy/paste formulas correctly

this method nearly works - though I am left with "0" in the pasted row if the original cell was balnk. It is imperitive that it is represented as per original sheet

Any ideas?? :unsure:
