Fill Handle

Formula Value Format Etc.

For example: if copying a formula to a new table or spreadsheet and only the value of the formula is to be displayed choose paste special and highlight values.

Advanced Microsoft Excel

Absolute Cell Addresses
When copying formulas Excel shifts the reference cell to a relative reference in the next column or row.
Example: when using the fill right command the relative reference shifts one column to the right.

If the formula is to refer back to the same cell each time it must use an absolute cell address.
Relative reference

Advanced Microsoft Excel

C to F conversion:
Formula F=C*1.8+32 Cell B15 contains 1.8 and Cell B16 contains 32. In order to refer to these as an absolute reference they must be written in the formula as $B$15 and $B$16. In this manner when copying and pasting or filling the formula it will always refer to these two cells. Shortcut: F4 will toggle between relative and absolute references
