How do you keep a cell constant in a formula?
To keep cell reference constant in formula, you just need to add the $ symbol to the cell reference with pressing the F4 key. Please do as follows. 1. Select the cell with the formula you want to make it constant.
Create a cell reference to another worksheet
- Click the cell in which you want to enter the formula.
- In the formula bar , type = (equal sign) and the formula you want to use.
- Click the tab for the worksheet to be referenced.
- Select the cell or range of cells to be referenced.
- By default, all cell references are relative references. When copied across multiple cells, they change based on the relative position of rows and columns. For example, if you copy the formula =A1+B1 from row 1 to row 2, the formula will become =A2+B2.
- Copying the VLOOKUP Function to Other Cells
- Click the cell containing the VLOOKUP arguments.
- Make sure you changed your Table_array entry per Rule 3 above – Party Codes'!$A$2:$B$45.
- Grab the cell handle that displays in the lower right corner.
- Left-click and drag down the cell handle to cover your column range.
- Excel INDIRECT Function. The INDIRECT function returns a reference to a range. You can use this function to create a reference that won't change if row or columns are inserted in the worksheet. Or, use it to create a reference from letters and numbers in other cells.
A key element of a formula is the cell reference, and there are three types:
- A mixed cell reference is either an absolute column and relative row or absolute row and relative column. When you add the $ before the column letter you create an absolute column or before the row number you create an absolute row.
- There are two types of cell references: relative and absolute. Relative and absolute references behave differently when copied and filled to other cells. Relative references change when a formula is copied to another cell. Absolute references, on the other hand, remain constant no matter where they are copied.
- Create your own custom list
- In a column of a worksheet, type the values to sort by, in the order you want them, from top to bottom. For example:
- Select the cells in that list, and then click File > Options > Advanced.
- Under General, click Edit Custom Lists.
- In the Custom Lists box, click Import.

- A key element of a formula is the cell reference, and there are three types:
- A cell is the intersection between a row and a column on a spreadsheet that starts with cell A1. Below is an example of a highlighted cell in Microsoft Excel; the cell address, cell name, or cell pointer "D8" (column D, row 8) is the selected cell and the location of what is being modified.
- Spreadsheet: Relative and absolute cell addresses. If you want to use the value of a cell in a formula in another cell of the spreadsheet, then you refer to this cell by means of its cell address. This cell address consists of a column indicator and a row number, e.g. cell D14 is the cell in column D, row 14.
