    Autofill problem (2002 (XP))

    Hello,

    When I try to divide using this formula in cell C2: =A2/B2, I get the right result (5/10=2). However, when I use the autofil feature to copy this formula down the C column, the same result repeats (2) , even though the cells referred to in the formula DO change (a3/b3, a4/b4, etc).

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated....

    Do you have calculation on automatic? Press F9 to calc

    Otherwise I am unclear what the problem could be if the formula is correct, the results should be correct.

    Steve et. al,

    The plot thickened. I found out the original data came from an outside database. To make a long story short, copying and pasting (special) into a new workbook solved the problem. It must have been some sort of cell formatting issue.

    Thanks for helping.
