I want to fill table cells by linking to cells on other worksheets eg =BLACK!B4 in one cell then =AQUA!B4, =BLUE!B4 etc in the cells below.

Unfortunately, when I enter one of these references all the other cells in the column change to reference the same sheet.

Can I overcome this?

Have you tried absolute references using a $ – soandos Apr 6 '12 at 15:26

You can turn this behaviour off. After you insert a formula in a table the Autocorrect Option link will apear (lightning bolt symbol). From this menu select 'Stop Automatically Creating Calculated Columns'

These setting are also accessable from Options/Proofing
