References are Excel are a way to refer to a cell, range, worksheet, or workbook in a formula.

You will learn how to reference cells, ranges, rows, and columns. You will then see how to use them with the most common functions and operators in Excel to perform simple calculations. Next, the course explores the differences between relative references, which change as they are copied to other rows or columns, and absolute references, which stay the same.
