Copy formula only from one spreadsheet to another

Hello,
I have a range of formula's in a spreadsheet that I need to copy to another
spreadsheet but when I do a Paste Special>Formula it copies the actual data
and references the original spreadsheet within the formula. Example:
Original formula in original spreadsheet is =COUNTA(AutoSys!B:B) and when I
paste special to another spreadsheet it is =COUNTA('[Scheduling Metrics April
2007.xls]AutoSys'!C:C). I have a whole worksheet with these formulas that I
need to copy on a regular basis, can someone tell me why it won't just copy
the formula? I have also tried paste special>Formulas and number formats,
values, values and number formats - they all give the same results.
Any help would be much appreciated
Thanks
Lori

It's behaving the way it is supposed to.

Try selecting the range of formulas to copy, pressing Ctrl-H and replacing
the = sign with your name - Replace All
Then copy the changed formulas, paste them into the new sheet
Do another Search & Replace, changing your name to an equal sign
