    This seems simple enough, but I can't seem to figure it out. I need to replicate the following formula found in cell A2 through the remaining cells in column A:

    =IF($L$2="No","Closed","Open")

    It works fine for A2, but I can't copy it to the remaining cells in column A; it keeps looking at the value of L2 rather than its respective "L" value (ie, L3, L4, etc).

    =IF($L2="No","Closed","Open")

    or if you want to copy to other columns as well:

    =IF(L2="No","Closed","Open")

    The dollar signs ($) lock it on the column or row...

    Ooops, guess I had dollar signs floating around in my head from other formulas. I removed them from this one and all is well - sheeesh!
