How to use absolute value in MS Excel
Now we will see that how we can use absolute value in MS Excel.
For that we have an excel sheet which consists of different information for employees including Salary, suppose if we want to increase the salary of everyone by 2000 Rs. and then calculate it again. Then we will usw formula such as 'Previous_salary+2000', which will give us our new salary, and after that we can drag that particular cell which will help us for finding the same for other employees.
Now if you want to increase the salary of employee by particular percentage for example 2.5 . Then we will create an formula for that as, 'Previous_salary*2.5+Previous_salary', which will give us our required value.
Now in case of writing 2.5, for any particular change, we can write that in a single cell and then select that cell on its place which will help to calculate new salary for any different increment.
Now to keep that particular cell for all, we can use method of Absolute to write formula ie. we will write '$' symbol before and after that cell's location which we need to use.
