Is there a way to automatically update the month formula to the next month when using drag and fill

Options

I dragged the formulas over to May, but have to manually update the number for the month cell by cell. Example bellow.


=SUMIFS({WEEKLY FREIGHT UPLOAD Range 2}, {WEEKLY FREIGHT UPLOAD Range 1}, "Pending", {WEEKLY FREIGHT UPLOAD Range 3}, AND(IFERROR(MONTH(@cell), 0) = 4, IFERROR(YEAR(@cell), 0) = 2022))

    There's no way to update that automatically.

    What I do when I have to use the same formula across many columns but update criteria on each one:

    Click into the formula field I want to copy, select the text for the formula, and Ctrl-C. Then I click into the cell I want to paste it into, hit Ctrl-V, and then edit the criteria. Hit enter, click into the next field, Ctrl-V again, edit & enter, click into the next column...

    As a process I find it efficient enough to get it done fairly quickly.
