Lets say I have one cell A1, which I want to keep constant in a calculation. For example, I want to calculate a value like this:
How do I make it so that if I drag that cell to make a calculation across cells in many rows, only the B1 value changes, while A1 always references that cell, instead of going to A2, A3, etc.?
Use this form:
$ tells excel not to adjust that address while pasting the formula into new cells.
Since you are dragging across rows, you really only need to freeze the row part:
Commenters helpfully pointed out that you can toggle relative addressing for a formula in the currently selected cells with these keyboard shortcuts:
- Windows: f4
- Mac: CommandT
