    Dragged formula returns incorrect results

    Hello all, in Excel2010, when i drag a formula down the column, the result returned in all the cells is the same as the top cell even though the formula is correct in the filled cells. If i type the formula in each cell then i get the correct result. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    First go to Excel Options, Formulas and change Calculations options from Manual to Automatic.

    Use formula to hide errors

    =IFERROR(E2/D2,"")
