Quick Reference

In spreadsheets, a formula will often use the contents of another cell or cells. If these are always in the same position relative to where the formula appears, then relative addressing is used in the formula which can then be copied and pasted into other locations to perform the required calculations. A formula can contain a mixture of relative and absolute addresses.
