My problem is: On Monday I create a new weekly log that carries over
the last work day (for example, copy Friday log to the new week on
Monday). There is other data that is running all the time, so the
last work day is carried to the next week. When I try to copy the
values in e5 and e6 to the new week I get a "ref" error, if I
rewrite it manually it works.
What you have in E5 and E6 are formulae, not values as such. When
you copy these, the formulae - not just the values - are copied over
by default, and the cell references are modified in the usual
way. If you see #REF errors, this is because the adjusted cell
references now address cells which do not exist or are
inaccessible. (It's not quite clear to me whether you are copying
into another part of the same sheet or a new sheet in the same
document or even a new document. But it doesn't really matter: the
problem is the same in any case.)
My question is how can I copy e5 and e6 correctly to the new weekly worksheet?
As you suggest, you need to paste the values in E5 and E6 into the
target cells, not the formulae which generate these values. When you
paste, use Edit | Paste Special... (or Ctrl+Shift+V) instead of
ordinary Paste. In the Paste Special dialogue, untick "Paste all" if
necessary, and then ensure that Numbers is ticked but Formulas is *not* ticked.
I hope this is clear ...
I trust this helps.
