    I need to copy a bunch of cells that each have a formula and I do not want the formula to change at all. Anyone know how to do this?
    TIA

    When referencing cells use a $ to lock its location, for example cell A3 should be entered as $A$3.

    Also, if you just want to copy the values, do the following:
    Copy the necessary cells, then paste special - just values.

    Hope this helps.
    Kind regards, Al.

    I would also add that instead of changing your formulas before the copy/paste, you can go ahead & do the copy/paste and then do a replace for the column assignment. For example, if you have a whole row of formulas that say (just a simple case): =A1/B1, and you're copying it into column F, say, you could just go ahead & do that, and then when the formula adjusts to say =E1/F1, just do a replacement of A for E & B for F.

    Is that confusing? Just trying to save you a little time.
