Please look at attached. I put an absolute reference formula in A10,which I am trying to copy to A19. However, all I get in A19 is the value, not the formula, as evidenced by the formula bar. Please advise as to what I am doing incorrectly. Thanks in advance.AABB.png

Hello,

do you have Skype installed?

There is  currently an issue with Paste Special that causes formulas to be pasted as values instead of the formulas. The browser plug-in for skype upsets the "Paste Special" functionality and defaults to pasting values instead of formulas. You may want to remove the  browser plug-in for skype (no need to uninstall skype itself). See here for details: http://www.thecodecage.com/forumz/hot-topics/212321-paste-paste-special-issues-office.html

cheers, teylyn

I actually forgot to put the $ sign in front of each row and column reference....I only put it in front of one of the cell coordinates.
