Copy cell down with automatic updating from cell above

have put this question in New Users forum as this probably a very basi
question that I should know!

I want put something in a cell that will take the cell above that look
in a cell on another worksheet and add something that makes it look i
the next row down

The cell in the first row is:

='Jobs & Tasks'!B$2

What I would like the next cell in the row below to say is

='Jobs & Tasks'!B$3

Without me needing to type it in - so that if I type ='Jobs 
Tasks'!B$2 in the top row

Then I want to put the 'magic' formula in the second row so that I ca
then copy down the second row and each following row will have a cel
where the formula automatically increase by one row

Is this possible?

Many thanks in advanc

just remove the $ sign before 2 in the formula. The $ sign fixes th
variable defined in the formula for easily copying the formulas t
different cells, so you can either fix the row or the column or both i
the formula before copying the same. In your case you do not want t
fix the row so just remove the $ sign

Truncating cells
Hello, I have a spreadsheet full of student names (Last, First, Middle) each in a separate column. I need to shorten the Middle Name column down to just the Middle Initial (1 character). It would be nice to do these using a function rather that edit them individually. I've tried the truncate function but could not get that to work. Any suggestions? Thanks, Matt Verdill Greetings, You need to use the LEFT function. In a new cell, type this formula: =LEFT(A1,1) Where A1 is the cell with the Middle Name and 1 is the number of characters.

Can I "unlock" just one cell in a protected worksheet?
Is there any way I can unlock just one cell in a protected worksheet without removing the protection from the entire worksheet? I am working on a fairly complex worksheet that has 10-15 data entry cells. The rest of the worksheet contains formulas and informational text. I have the formulas pretty much debugged and working. I am now down to making mostly cosmetic changes to the text and formatting. I have marked all of the data entry cells in a different color to help me keep from overwriting a formula, but it still happens occasionally. I usually catch it right away and can recover with ...
