Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0an absolute cell is a cell that doesn't move or change. $a$3 is a3 regardless of where you are referring from. A relative cell is say you add a1 + a2 = and answer shows in a3. Then you copy a3 to b3. The formula for b3 will read b1 + b2. It moved to be b column because it is relative. Same scenario using absolute... a1 + $a$2 = and response shows in a3. copy a3 to b3 and the formula showing in b3 is b1 + $a$2 = b3.
