# Dragging A Formula With \$

Dec 19, 2007

How Do You Drag This Formula Down A Column & Make It Progress And Still Have \$'s

This:
=\$a\$1
=\$a\$2

Not This
=\$a\$1
=\$a\$1

I Dont Want To Have To Drag The Formula And Then Manually Put In The \$'s

## When Dragging Formula Down The Formula Skips X Number Of Cells

Jul 22, 2014

Is it possible to write a formula that skips x number of cells and have the formula autoincrement as usual. For an examples lets say I want to skip 3 cells and I have entered in the cells listed:

A1= "1"
A2= "2"
A3= "3"

Then I type in the simple formula in the cell
B1= "=A1"

and then drag down but it skips 3 cells so then

B5= "=A2"

B9= "=A3"

If it didn't skip then
B1= "=A1"
B2= "=A2"
B3= "=A3"

this is just an example as I will be writing more complex formulas and need some thing that I can write into the formula so that it skips.

Something similar to this B1 "=A1(skip3cells)"

## Dragging Down Formula

Jul 14, 2009

i have a sheet with alot of data, its a contacts list. colum A is Company name, B contact name, C address, D postcode. One row = one contact. On the next sheet i want to have on column with each contact set out as if it wer on an envelope, so i did the formula:............

if i select all of this space and try to drap the formula down the next cell fills with =sheet1!A11......I want it to say =sheet1!A3. If i cant drag it down then I am going to have to manually write this formula 100000000000 times.....anyoning.

## Dragging The Formula To The End Of The Report

Jan 31, 2007

Here's my Formula:

Range("H2:S2").Select
Selection.AutoFill Destination:=Range("H2:S2702"), Type:=xlFillDefault
Range("H2:S2702").Select

This is dragging the formula to the end of the report. My dilemma is that this was captured with the macro recorder. Is there a way to change "S2702" with whatever row Column S ends with? Meaning this formula will be used on different sized reports so the numbers will vary. I just need a direct statement to compensate however large the report is.

## Copying A Formula By Dragging

Mar 3, 2007

I have obviously hit a combination of keys that has turned this function off. I can no longer drag and fill cells with a formula, it will only copy the original text/value into adjacent cells. How can I fix this??

## Dragging Formula Format Not Repeating

May 26, 2006

I am having issues with this sheet. i am trying to get this formula to stick, when i drag down or across. its not holding the formula true to the first column. i am unsure of what this is called or else i would be using more specific words.

## Dragging Down Formula With Vlookup And Iferror Not Working?

Mar 26, 2014

I am trying to get this tricky formula to work with vlookup and if error. The problem is that excel will not recognize the formula when I try to drag it down, but instead repeats the same numbers over again. I've tried some combinations using vlookup, rows, and if error, but it doesn't seem to work. So I'm trying to drag down the formula from g3:g99, to reference either cells b8:99, or whichever value I enter into f1, on down to b99.

## Dragging Formulas: Replicate A Formula In Cells

Feb 11, 2009

If I need to replicate a formula in some cells, I usually drag it down or sideways. Is there any easier way to do this? I have large numbers of cells into which to drag the formula. Can I specify which cell range the formula is applicable to (i.e. A1:A10,000 or something) instead of dragging? If so how?

## How To Increment Worksheet Number When Dragging Formula

Nov 29, 2012

[URL]

I have data in worksheets that make up the 52 weeks of the year. Each sheet is numbered like this "WK1" "WK2" and so on... up to "WK52"

Each sheet is setup exactly the same so all cells are the same.

So I have a summary sheet that structures the data from all the week sheets to plot to graph all within the same file.

Thing is when I link the first cell to the first sheet say WK1 and then try to drag the formula down to the worksheet number does not increment

Tried the code in the beginning of this post and it displays the worksheet and cell number in the cell cant get the actual data to be displayed.

When I drag this formula down I want it to index the worksheet number

=WK44!\$AG\$14

Like this

=WK44!\$AG\$14
=WK45!\$AG\$14
=WK46!\$AG\$14

This is what I get in the cell when I use the formula given in the post

WK01! \$AG\$14

## Using Static Cell While Dragging Formula Across Rows?

Aug 21, 2013

Let's say I have a value in B2, and a formula in C2. If I drag the formula from C2 all the way down to C20 (spreading it 18 times), the formula wants the value in B2, B3, B4, etc.. down to B20. How do I drag a formula, but have it always reference B2?

## Dragging Formula Horizontally While Referencing Vertical?

Oct 21, 2012

Im working on a financial forecast in ecxel and I'm trying to drag a formula from left to right, while referencing horizontal cells from a different tab:

Specifically, I have created a "loan schedule" which shows 12 monthly interest payments starting in cell B46 and ending in cell B57.

In a separate tab labelled "Balance Sheet", I would like to show the first interest payment ('loan schedule'!B46) in cell C28. Next, I would like to select the cell and drag it to the right so that the remaining 11 interest payments will be transferred into D29, E29, F29 etc. Unfortunately,the spreadsheet doesn't reference to the vertically listed interest payments from the loan schedule but instead references the cell to the right of the interest payment. Using "\$" seems to be of no support.

## Changing Indirect Reference When Dragging Formula

Dec 9, 2012

I have been using the following formula to do conditional summing over multiple worksheets:

=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(INDIRECT("'"&\$AB\$2:\$AB\$13&"'!b3:b39"),\$B16,INDIRECT("'"&\$AB\$2:\$AB\$13&"'!c3:c39")))

The formula works fine, but when I drag it to the next column c3:c39 stays the same. How do I get that reference to change when I drag the formula over multiple columns.

## How To Update Cell Reference When Dragging - INDIRECT Formula

Jul 10, 2014

I am using the formula below to sum across several worksheets, and the formula I am using works fine, but when I copy the formula across to other cells, I can't figure out how to have it update my cell range:

=SUMPRODUCT(SUMIF(INDIRECT("'"&\$A\$1:\$A\$4&"'!A:A"),\$B4,INDIRECT("'"&\$A\$1:\$A\$4&"'!G:G")))

The range A:A is ok to be static, but I need the G:G to be dynamic so when I drag it to the right it will change from G:G to H:H. I:I, etc.

## Dragging Cells Changes Range In Formula Of Locked Cell?

Feb 19, 2014

I have a workbook with multiple sheets interacting with one another. On one of them the user is prompted to make lists of expenses in multiple columns. The column labels are in row one, and row two has the sums of all the cells below. I have every sheet in the workbook protected, so that only the cells that need to be modified are unlocked. The problem is that the user can drag cells around and change the range of the functions in row two (locked cells).

For example, A2 has the function =sum(A3:A100). But if the user drags the values in A3:A5 to A6:A8, the formula in A2 changes to =sum(A6:A100). Is there anyway that I can allow the user to drag cells (this could be a useful feature), but keep the formulas in the second row fixed?

## Increment Part Criteria Of Formula When Dragging/Copying

Sep 22, 2007

As per this screenshot,

I am trying to work out a method which will allow me to drag the forumula which is in cell B13 from B13:B17, and have in increase the date serial number by one for each row by which it descends.

In other words I want to drag the formula down to, say B14, and have it increase the date serial to = that which is in cell A14.

[the obvious benefit of being able to do this is that I don't have to manually adjust the date serial in each cell on each new row]

## Excel 2007 :: Appending Sheet Number Automatically By Dragging Cells In Formula

Jul 12, 2011

appending excel sheet number in a formula. Here is the example.

In an excel book, I have sheets 1 to 50. In each sheet i have a standard format to enter the details. And in one sheet I want to keep some summary with required cells. I made a table by applying formula, for example in cell A1 i kept formula ='9'!\$D\$9. In this '9' refers sheet9. In the similar way i want to capture the data from all sheets.

A1 cell ='9'!\$D\$9
A2 cell ='10'!\$D\$9
A3 cell ='11'!\$D\$9....etc

Is there any formula to append the Sheet number automatically (like dragging the shell) intead changing sheet number manually. because it is wasting so much time.

## Leaving Blank Cells Blank In Dragging Formula Combining Different Formulas In One Cell?

Aug 2, 2014

I can't modify my formula to leave blank cells blank when dragging it down, Also, I've got two formulas that i need to combine. Please view the comments I've put in cells E4, F2,F3,H2 and I2 to understand clearly what am seeking. See the attached worksheet.

## Dragging Formulas; Values Of The Formula To Change And The Other Not To Change

Jan 29, 2010

I want to drag a formula however i want one of the values of the formula to change and the other not to change. for example:

c1=a1+b1
c2=a1+b2
c3= a1+b3
: : :

how can i make it do this when i drag? a1 is not just a constant and it depends on other parameters.

## Skip X Columns In Formula Reference When Dragging Across Columns

Nov 15, 2009

How do you make the Autofill function increment in blocks, e.g. instead of increment 1,2,3 increment 1,8,15 inthe following example: I have a 2 worksheets, one with days of the year across columns and values down rows, and another that summarises the sum of the corresponding days in weeks, so I have 365 columns in sheet 1 and 52 columns in sheet2. Everytime I update the sum range i cannot autofill it in the summary worksheet, as A1:G1 autofills to B1:H1, but I want it to increment to H1:N1.

## Dragging Vertically

May 27, 2009

In row 3 I have values horizontally. (A3 to Z3)

If I drag it vertically it does not give the correct values.
Is it possible to drag it in a correct way?

I tried =INDEX(\$A\$3:\$X\$3,ROWS(\$A\$3:\$A3))

## Dragging Rows

Oct 2, 2009

I have the following forumlas in consecutive Rows on Tab#2 of my file:
Row 1: =(Tab#1!B12 + Tab#1!B13)
Row 2: =(Tab#1!B24 + Tab#1!B25)
Row 3: =(Tab#1!B36 + Tab#1!B37)

Is there any way to drag this formula down the rows below it so that each time it continues this pattern. Just to be clear the pattern is that each time you drag down a row it goes 12 rows in the formula.

## Change The Column When Dragging?

Apr 6, 2014

How can I have it so the column (letter) changes in succession rather than the row (number)? Here is my formula :

=SUMPRODUCT(('Web Queries Reference'!A\$2:A\$600<>-1)*('Web Queries Reference'!A\$2:A\$600))-0.01

I would like it to be this once I drag the cell formula down to the next row :

=SUMPRODUCT(('Web Queries Reference'!B\$2:B\$600<>-1)*('Web Queries Reference'!B\$2:B\$600))-0.01

## Duplicate Line Without Dragging

Jun 23, 2014

In one sheet i have a table with 154450 lines from a software output converted in a table , in another sheet i made a table to 'sanitize' and make 'human-readable' the first one referring to some of the cells.

It works fine but, i have to drag the last line to repeat the formula and, as you can imagine, hard to think i will drag for 154450 lines ^^.

## Variable Effects Of Dragging

Dec 28, 2009

I have found an inconsistency in different PCs with respect to the method of producing incrementation when dragging a grab handle to an adjacent cell. In some PCs just dragging produces the effect, in others a key has to be held down during the drag. I'm sure there are detailed instructions about such a setting, but I have been unable to find them.

## Lock Dragging Of Cells

Oct 22, 2008

Is there a way to protect a sheet from a user dragging a cell?

## Skipping Certain Cells When Dragging Down

Sep 19, 2013

I'm looking to easily drag the sum of certain cells in a different column BUT keeping a specific range, it's hard to explain so i'll show an example...

A1
A2
A3
A4
A5
A6
A7
A8
B1=SUM(A1:A4)
B2=SUM(A4:A7)
B3=SUM(A8:A11)

And so on...

Is there any way I can do this by dragging down the cell formula from B1 and it remembering the range of 4, so I don't have to manually select each range...?

## Auto Cell Dragging.

May 9, 2006

I have an excel workbook with two sheets:
1. Data.
2. TR.

Once the choices are made (dropdown lists) and the button is clicked, TR sheet is filled. I need a macro that would drag the cells of E4,J4,O4,T4. To the cell beneath them, once data is filled in either C or D, H or I, M or N, R or S. The dragging of the cells will display the results (column E,J,O,T), thus, totals will appear in the CONS sheet.

## Increment By X When Dragging Cells Down

Jan 5, 2008

I need to check the result of the difference between 2 cells in the same column. But It needs to be done with an increment of 2 e.g. A2-A1 then A4-A3 and so on.

## How To Skip Columns When Dragging Formulas

Dec 3, 2013

I have 2 sheets in my excel document. The first sheet (sheet1) has student data (grade they got on a test) from C5:C35 all in 1 column. On the 'second' sheet (sheet3), I have made a profile for each student (there are 30 of them, spread out 1 per printable page). I want to take Sheet1!C5 result and put it in sheet3!D7. The formula in sheet3!D7 would just be =sheet1!C5. I want to 'drag' that formula to L7, then to T7 then to AB7 etc etc (they are all 8 columns apart), obviously not affecting any of the cells between them.

There are 12 pieces of data in sheet1 that I want to auto update in sheet3, for 30 students, so copy pasting, and adjusting the formula would take a long time.

## Dragging Down Reference To Another Workbook Cell

Jan 23, 2014

I have a master workbook that I reference data from hundreds of excels on.

I am trying to reference the cell "BU7" that has the workbook name (NT-13-001) in it, to reference sheet name "Purchase Order" at cell "H13".

Next line I would like to reference the cell "BU8" that has the workbook name (NT-13-002) in it, to reference sheet name "Purchase Order" at cell "H13".

The computer path is K:FRG TOOL REQ2013NT FormsNT-13-001

This is the formula I have tried... I have also attempted the INDIRECT function & Hyperlink GO TO.

=IFERROR('K:FRG TOOL REQ2013NT Forms["&DU7&".xlsx]Purchase Order'!\$H\$13,"")
