Microsoft Excel 2003 (full product)

Specs: Windows XP
Copy/paste places result of source cell not the relative formula in the destination cell. So if I put the valus 2 in cell A1 and the formula =A1*12 in cell B1. The value 24 is displayed in B1. When I enter the value 3 in A2 and do a simple copy paste of B1 to B2, I expect the formula displaded in B2 to be =A2*12, and the resultant displayed to be 36. It used to work, but something got screwed up. Help!

After goining thru all the Options nothing seems obvious, so I used the Detect & Repair selection under the Help menu. Selected Discard my customized setting and restore defaults. This did the trick and Excel now works properly.
