Linking many cells
I wish to link many cells in (e.g. A1:40) in sheet 1 to A1:A40 in sheet 2
without doing it one by one so that whaever I type in A1 sheet 1 appears in
A1 sheet 2. Please any idea?
As long as your 'from' and 'to' blocks are structured identically (eg 1
column of forty rows in your example), it's straightforward. Click in the
first 'to' cell, Sheet1!A1. Type the '=' sign, then click in the first
'from' cell, Sheet2!A1, then hit enter. Your formula in Sheet!A1 should read
=Sheet2!A1 (look for it in the formula bar). Grab the fill handle (th...Cell Reference 01-12-10
What I am looking for is that when I enter a formula (In cell B1) to pick up
value in A1. Now I need value from cell A5 in cell B2. Next value I need in
B3 is A9. Everytime I have to change the cell values manually in column B.
Formula I use : - =IF(OR(AK64<$D$4,AK64=$D$4),H331,0)
Now I need value from cell H336 and I manually change H331 to H336 shown below
Any way to make this automated.
Instead of =IF(OR(AK64<$D$4,AK64=$D$4),H331,0)
you could say
...Auto change formula in cells when source is changed
Good day experts;
If specific cells have the same formula for example:
C1 = Product( A1;B1)
C16 = Product(A16;B16)
And so on ...
What formula should i write in C16, C17, ... so that:
when the formula in the source cell, C1, is changed the formulas in C16,
C17, ... would automatically change accordingly.
I tried "=C1" it does not work
Thanks in advance

I would like to merge information from two cells into one:
NOTE: Each column has the same amount of rows
Can I copy the entire column from B1 and bring it together in colomn A1
WITHOUT overwriting the information in colomn A1???

I was able to copy and paste then not sure why but it would only paste the

This could be a poorly designed add-in interfering with copy and paste
operations. Did you install something recently?
