Excel Formulas

I am havng problems trying to copy formulas in Excel.

If i have a column of figures in Row A and B, and want to add them together in Row C, by using =A1+B1 it returns the correct value in C1.
If I copy C1 and paste to the rest of the C column, it returns the same value all the way down the column as in C1, not adding A and B together. If i try and drag the formula down using the bottom right hand handle in C1, it does the same thing.

Any suggestions?

Does it do the same thing if you make the Formula =SUM(A1:B1) and copy or drag it in the same way?

Select Tools, Options and Calculation Tab. Ensure Automatic is selected.

Also check Edit Tab has Drag & Drop selected.
