This formula includes relative references to three cells

This formula includes relative references to three cells: =A1*B4+B2

To make the references for all of these cells absolute for both their rows and columns you'd change the above formula to =$A1+$B4+$B2

1 Answer

You only have absolute references for the columns. You need to do the same for the rows (ex: $A$1). Also note the first operator in the formula is * not +.
