Excel not updating formula after change
By creating a formula using two COLUMN functions we can calculate the column number required.
The format of the formula is: By inserting the $ signs into the right places, the column number will change as the formula is copied across. It includes most of the tips and tricks we’ve covered in this series, including faster calculations, multiple criteria, left lookup and much more.
It is not updating a column total as values are input into any of these cells.
The second problem I have encountered occurs when trying to copy a cell formula from one cell to another cell.
I’ve worked with this issue for a long time, and it’s actually caused me to avoid using Excel formulas in tables generated via Power Query all together.
No shame there, but you’ve probably run into a situation where you set up the formulas, refresh your query and the Excel formulas don’t update in Power Query 's output table.
In this tutorial, I will show you how you can do this using various ways: Note that this method works only when you have a few cells from which you want to copy formulas.
If you have a lot, use the find and replace technique shown below.
When using relative/mixed references in your formulas, you may – sometimes – want to copy and paste formulas in Excel without changing the cell references.
Simply put, you want to copy the exact formula from one set of cells to another.
