Excel Help - Populating an IF Statement down the sheet

I'm working in an excel spreadsheet using an IF statement [=IF(G12>0,A8,"")] and I'm dragging the statement down the page.  I want the first part (G12) to fill, but the 2nd part (A8) to copy.   Anybody know a way to accomplish 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.
