Relative References In Excel 2013
Relative references: As a matter of course, all cell references are relative references. At the point when duplicated over different cells, they change in light of the relative position of lines and segments.
For instance, in the event that you duplicate the formula =A1+B1 from push 1 to push 2, the equation will become =A2+B2. Relative references are particularly advantageous at whatever point you require to repeat the same computation over different lines or sections.
To make and duplicate an equation utilizing relative references:
In the accompanying illustration, we need to make a recipe that will duplicate each item’s price by the quantity. Rather than making another recipe for each column, we can make a solitary equation in cell D2 and at that point duplicate it to alternate lines.
We’ll utilize relative references so the recipe effectively figures the aggregate for everything.
Select the cell that will contain the equation. In our illustration, we’ll select cell D2.
- Enter the formula to calculate the desired value. In our example, we’ll type =B2*C2.
- Press Enter on your keyboard. The formula will be calculated, and the result will be displayed in the cell.
- Locate the fill handle in the bottom-right corner of the desired cell. In our example, we’ll locate the fill handle for cell D2.
- Click, hold, and drag the fill handle over the cells you want to fill. In our example, we’ll select cells D3:D12.
- Release the mouse. The formula will be copied to the selected cells with relative references, and the values will be calculated in each cell.
You can double-click the filled cells to check their formulas for accuracy. The relative cell references should be different for each cell, depending on their rows.
