What I would like is input text into a cell say A1 and I want that text to then be duplicated in cell D1. But I can not type the formula into D1 itself i.e. no =a1.

Is this possible? Thanks

Why can't you type =A1 into cell D1? – Dave Sep 26 '13 at 10:27
I was hoping to use it to auto fill a lot of forms so that i dont need to go into each one and type the same details in over and over again. – damian Sep 26 '13 at 12:14
