Hello Excellers, welcome back to another #FormulaFriday, in my Excel 2020 series. Today it is a somewhat zippy quick Formula tip. I will show you how to move your formula quickly around your Excel worksheet without changing cell references.
Relative cell referencing in Excel is one of it’s most powerful features. But, when you copy a formula to a new location in your worksheet or workbook, then all of the relative cell addresses also change. I dont always want this to happen.
Sometimes however, you may want to move your formulas around your worksheet, but not change the cell references at all.
We can easily do this by DRAGGING & DROPPING the formula cell.
It is really easy. Follow the simple steps below.
Move Your Formula.
- Select the edge of the cell that contains your formula
- Drag to your new location
- Easy as that! To move your formula!
- The cell references remain unchanged
