Avoid the nightmare of pressing F4 multiple times when coping and pasting formulas!
To copy/paste a Formula without changing the Absolute or Relative references:
Option 1: Select a cell under the cell containing a formula and press Ctrl+ '.
Option 2: Copy and paste the formula from the Formula Bar to a cell, instead of from a cell to another cell.
For example, cell C12 contains the formula:
1. Select the formula string in the Formula Bar and press Ctrl+C to copy it.
2. Leave the Formula Bar by clicking the Enter or Cancel icons to the left of the fx on the Formula Bar.
3. Select another cell and press Ctrl+V.
