May I know how to make B2...Bn in excel. I tried to drag B down, but the B1 will change accordingly.

A1   B1  
A2   B2=A2xB1  
A3   B3=A3xB1  
A4   B4=A4xB1

Thanks.

Hello

in B2 enter

=A2*$B$1

Note the $ signs!! Now copy down. The next cell will then be

=A3*$B$1
=A4*$B$1

The $ signs ensure that the reference to B1 is not changed in each row.

cheers, teylyn

To add to previous comment, immediately after entering B1, press F4 once and it will show $B$1, press it again and it will change to B$1, and if you press F4 for a third time, it will change to $B1.

In the 2nd example (B$1), the 1 will be constant and the B will be variable if you copy it across.

In the 3rd example ($B1), the B will be constant and the 1 will change if you copy down.

Dawie
