formulate a reference column that doesn't change if the data referenced changes

How do I formulate a column to reference another cell for value, but not have its value change if the reference cell changes?

    You would need to have a unique identifier on every row. You would then set up a copy row automation to copy the row to another sheet when the data you want to capture is set. Then you would use an INDEX/MATCH to reference the second sheet to bring the static data back in to your working sheet.
