copying formulas #9

```I am trying to copy formulas in a spreadsheet that pulls the data from every
4th column in another spreadsheet in a consistent pattern (eg. b6, f6, j6,
n6). When I try to copy the pattern to the next 4 cells in the row,
anticipating r6, v6, etc. instead it repeats as f6, j6, n6, r6. How do I
correct this?

```Thank you. The OFFSET command identifies the correct cell. However, when I
copy to the right, the pattern doesn't repeat. It always remains anchored to
the first cell (eg. A1), so all subsequent results repeat the same value. I
tried removing the \$ before the column, but it still doesn't work. I need the
copied formula to move the anchor point over by 4 columns as the new
reference. How do I do that?

```Hi
this is done automatically by the thirdparameter of this formula:
(COLUMN()-1)*4

So \$A\$1 is correct. The third parameter shifts the cell offset

What could keep formulas from recalculating?
I have a workbook that I received from a company with which I do business. On it are several worksheets (tabs). On one sheet, if I go to enter a formula in a cell, it displays it as text instead of calculating a value. For example, if I type =A1+A2 it will display that exact text in the cell as opposed to displaying the sum of cells A1 and A2. On other worksheets in the same workbook, entering formulas seems to work just fine. I have checked in Options, and auto-calc is checked (pressing F9 also has no effect).
