Excel 2010 creating a custom auto fill for formulas

I have a spreadsheet in Excel 2010 with 1440 rows.  I have a formula I need copied to all rows.  I'd like to enter in the formula for the first few rows and then use Excel's Auto Fill to fill in the formula for the rest of the rows.

The formula for the first three rows are:
=SUMIF(B2:B1440,B2,D2:D1440)
=SUMIF(B2:B1440,B3,D2:D1440)
=SUMIF(B2:B1440,B4,D2:D1440)

In the SUMIF formula, the criteria changes but the range and sum_range remain the same.  If I use auto fill, I want only the criteria to increase, so the next four rows would be:
=SUMIF(B2:B1440,B5,D2:D1440)
=SUMIF(B2:B1440,B6,D2:D1440)
=SUMIF(B2:B1440,B7,D2:D1440)
=SUMIF(B2:B1440,B8,D2:D1440)

But that's not what I'm getting.  Instead, I'm getting:
=SUMIF(B5:B1443,B5,D5:D1443)
=SUMIF(B5:B1443,B6,D5:D1443)
=SUMIF(B5:B1443,B7,D5:D1443)
=SUMIF(B8:B1446,B8,D8:D1446)

How do I get the auto fill to only increase the criteria part of the formula and leave everything else in the formula alone?

You can use absolute addressing for range:
=SUMIF($B$2:$B$1440,B2,$D$2:$D$1440)
