How do I copy formula to the next column and have it auto change one parameter?

I have the following formula:

=SUMIF(C11:C10000,"Engineering",E11:E10000)

...I can copy it to the next column and it of course changes the C and E to D and F, but I really only want it to change the second set of numbers and leave the C as is.

How do I do this?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Use absolute references:

=SUMIF(C11:C10000,"Engineering",$E11:$E10000)

For info - the $ fixes the parameter which it prefixes eg

$A1 - fixes just the column reference
A$1 - fixes just the row reference
$A$1 - fixes both row and column

Tip: Put the cursor on the cell reference in the formula bar and press [F4] to cycle through the options.
