How to Fix a Row in Excel Formula ?
To fix a row in an Excel formula, you can use the “$” sign in front of the row number in a cell reference. Here’s how to do it:
- Click on the cell where you want to use the fixed row reference.
- Type an equal sign (=) to start a formula or a function.
- Type the cell reference that you want to fix. For example, if you want to fix row 5, type “A5” (without the quotes).
- Add a “$” sign in front of the row number. For example, to fix row 5, the reference should be “$A$5”.
- Press enter to complete the formula or function. The fixed row reference will remain the same even when you copy the formula or function to other cells.
By fixing a row in this way, you can make sure that a certain row is always referenced correctly, regardless of where the formula or function is copied to in your Excel spreadsheet.
