I have the following formula

=ROUND(C2*$J2,0)

When the formula is copied to another cell, I want J2 to continue to be referred. For Eg., when I copy the formula to cell 5, I expect the formula to change to

=ROUND(C5*$J2,0)

but instead I get

=ROUND(C5*$J5,0)

Can someone please help me identify the problem and a possible resolution.

Thank You
