Rep: Reputation: 31 calc find replace retain relativity

if i have thousands of formulas like this

in cell A3
in cell A5

i want to replace them all like this:

in cell A3
in cell A5

is there a way to do that like find-replace?

the problem i am facing right now is that find-replace does not keep the relativity of each cell. i.e. it changes $B? to $B4 in every cell, instead of $B3 to $B4, $B4 to $B5, etc.

the above is just an illustration; the actual formula i'm trying to change is this:


the problem is that F9 there.
