```The \$ signs make a cell reference Absolute so it does not change as you copy
the formula.

=B11*\$C\$4 will increment as  =B12*\$C\$4 as you drag/copy down the column.

The B11 will increment and \$C\$4 will remain fixed.

See help on absolute and relative cell references.

```Why don't you try to copy te cell down one row or over one row.   You'll see
B11 changing, but \$C\$4 doesn't change.    It's absolute referencing.

Hi I got this formula from one of my old treads, that Bob Phillips sorted for me in 2006 (search - add 4 days). =WORKDAY(A1,IF(OR(WEEKDAY(A1,2)>5,B1>TIME(16,0,0)),5,4)) I cannot seem to get the formula working when the hours are adjusted. If using the first example, returns 21/01/10, but when adjust the time to say 21: 00:00 hrs the date does not change Examples Mon 18/01/10 07:00:00 result should read 21/01/10 Mon 18/01/10 16:51:00 result should read 22/01/10 Sat 23/01/10 any time result should read 28/01/10 Sun 24/01/10 any time result should read...

Unable to Install SSRS Wizard SP 4 (KB971972)
I am able to install and run the SSRS Wizard but I understand from the SSRS Integration FAQ that if I am using SQL 2008 then I need the service pack for the SSRS Wizard. If I install SP4 from the KB971972 link the SSRS Wizard will no longer run. It will ask for the path of the program, once I point it at the exe an error appears sating that the SSRS Wizard has stopped working. I have tried this on a couple machines with the same result. After working with MS on this issue, it turns out there is a bug with the SP4 installer that breaks the shortcut in the Start menu. The work...

Calling C# .NET COM object from MFC/C++ App?

Deleting records in CRM 4.0
Hi, One of my major issues with CRM is the inability to delete records. We have a development setup and hence now have lots of 'test' data that is clogging up the system and needs to be removed. We have Contract Templates and Contracts that need to be deleted but I am unable to find a way of doing this. I find it unreasonable that once you have saved a Contract Template you can no longer edit it, so if you made a mistake you have to delete it and re-create it, unfortunately if you have applied it to a Contract first and then made that Contract Active before you spotted your mistake yo...
