fill formulas and values

Not sure how to fill down formulas, with either dragging or CTRL-D,without 
taking along formats, colours, borders (especially) etc with them.
A real pain having to re-format a sheet every time I auto-fill...surely 
there is an easier way to do this.

Cheers!

Help simplifying a SUMPRODUCT formula
The following SUMPRODUCT formula produces the correct results but I'm reasonably certain that there must be a more efficient way of constructing the formula. There are basically two components to this formula separated by the + sign. Each component performs the same calculation: the first part for Class="MS" and the second part (after the +) for Class="MSTV". Isn't there a way to construct the formula so that it would be calculated for Class="MS" OR Class="MSTV" and eliminate the need for two steps? I tried to incorporate the OR formula wi...

Help With an Excel Formula
I am in excel and I have the following formula = Q:26 typed into Cell C:2. What I want to do is have a second cell D:2 that takes what ever cell reference I enter into C:2 and adds 1 row to it. So cell D:2 would be equal to Q:27, which is 1 row down from row Q:26. Is there a way to do this? Not possible unless you use an add-in or user define function that reads the text of the formula in C2 D McRitchie has UDF for that http://www.mvps.org/dmcritchie/excel/formula.htm then you could use =OFFSET(INDIRECT(SUBSTITUTE(getformula(C2),"=","")),1,) Regards, Peo Sjobl...

Repeating formula in Excel
Hi. I need to copy a number into 500 rows, with each number increasing by 1 in value. These numbers are used to track call numbers, so the format is like this: 2005-001 and I need it to repeat itself up to 2005-0550, and I don't want to spend the time typing each value in manually.

Use input box to fill cells?
My question may be quite simple, but I have not been able to find any info on it (due, no doubt to ignorance) I want to use the info from an input box to fill certain cells, basically prompting the user for the info to populate the cells.

How can this be written to allow the user to have this info put in, be able to exit at any point, and possibly insert cells if they go beyond the range stated above?

Maintain cell reference after value is moved
How can you keep a reference to another cell from changing even if the other cell's contents are moved? The objective is to maintain a column of running summations, such as a projected bank balance, that refer to anticipated credits or debits in another column, even as those entries are moved about. For example, cell G100 has the formula =SUM(D$4:D100), which works only until the value in D100 is moved, say to D150, whereupon the formula in G100 is automatically changed to =SUM(D$4:D150). I can copy and paste the value to D150 and then just delete the old value in D100...
