    How to copy a cell without auto-adjustment of fix cell references (in Excel 2007)?

    Assume I have a cell M24 with a formula like

    =M10 + $H24 - $I24*0.35

    As you can see B10 is a fix reference (due to omitted $) which should NOT be auto-adjusted but be kept.

    Now I want to copy the formular to lots of cells below cell M24. therefore I mark cell M24 and click copy in context menu.

    Then I drag/expand the blinking cell border to lets say the 20 cells below.
    As I result I expect e.g. in cell M25 a formula like

    =M10 + $H25 - $I25*0.35

    Unfortunately I got

    =M11 + $H25 - $I25*0.35

    So the fix reference is adjusted as well.

    How can I tell Excel 2007 to NOT auto-adjust fix references in formulas?

    Hi pstein,

    I think you may have the 'fixed reference' (anchor) backwards.

    '$' anchors a reference, and NO '$' allows the reference to adjust.

    I think you probably want:
