is the most in depth excel support blog I have yet encountered. A prime example of recommended reading for moderately familiar excel users is “10 Excel Formula Myths” which contains this gem:

8. We cannot copy a formula without changing references

Of course you can. If you want to have the same formula as in the cell above, just press CTRL+’
You will get the same formula and you can modify it as you want.

Now go to the target cell and press F2 and paste (CTRL+V)

Might have to make up a Moodle lesson of required readings for Computing Basic Skills lecturers.
