One of the skills you will learn is:

Absolute Reference or Dollar Signs

Absolute reference, dollars signs or fixing a formula, formulas or formulae whichever takes your fancy. You know sometimes I see people do the most interesting things to get around a problem that can be sorted with absolute references. What do I mean?

Well say for instance you have a list of products, and you've calculated the revenue made on each but now you want to work out how much each product sale is worth to your company, as a percentage. First create your spreadsheet and create your calculations. Then add an extra column at the top that has Percentage of total as a heading. Click in the cell below and presuming your revenue for each product are in cells D2:D20 and your total in cell D21 then the formula would be: =D2/$D$21 you can either multiply the sum by 100 to get a percentage or format the cell as a percentage. Afterwards you can autofill the formula down to apply it to the other cells.
