How do I copy/paste a formula in Microsoft Excel so that the exact formula, verbatim, is copied and pasted? That is, I don't want it to increment or use other logic to interpret how I want the pasted formula modified. I don't want the references updated or modified.
Another way is to write your formulas with direct references. Use $A$1 rather than A1. Or $A1 if you want only the number to increment but the column to stay the same, or vice versa (A$1).
