1. In cell H 1 I have:-


2. In cell I 1 I have:-


3. Just copy the formula above down the column:-

 - Ctrl-C in cell I 1

 - highlight cells I 2 to I 6000

 - Ctrl-V to paste. 

The above should achieve what you want.

Say you want to add 10% to all prices, then enter 1,1 in an unused cell, 
copy the cell, then select the price column, and goto Edit > PasteSpecial > 
Operation: Multiply.

cannot copy same value twice
i am sure this topic has been addressed but i cannot find anything on a search the problem is that the office clipboard will not copy a value which is the same as one already copied for example, if you are trying to copy: 2 3 4 5 5 6 7 it will copy the first instance of '5' but when you try to copy the second instance it will just make a funny noise and it will not copy the second '5' at all now, obviously if you are trying to copy a long sequence of numbers, to paste them into another location you want to copy all of these numbers [i use 'clipmate', an add on clip...

Value of non-numeric characters in a formula
As pretty much an Excel newbie, why does Excel (97 and 2002) treat a non-numeric character as having a value of 1 in a =PRODUCT formula? It treats the same character as a 0 in a =SUM formula. Make C1 =PRODUCT(A1,B1). Then, e.g put 5 in A1 and 3 in B1. C1 shows 15. Fine. Now try putting 0 in B1. C1 is now 0. Fine again. Now try putting an e or a comma in B1. C1 shows 5! Why? Try the same thing with C1 = SUM(A1,B1). The result will be 8, 5, and 5. TIA for the explanation. I'm sure it's there somewhere in the Help info, but I can't see it. -- Jeff (Remove xxx from emai...

need vlookup function to return the row number
I have a one column list of data (around 3,000 items) - and I am using the vlookup function to determine if an item is in that list using something like the formula below: =if(iserror(vlookup(A1,D1:D3000,1,false)),"not in list","in list") I would like to know if I can have this function return the cell address or row number to indicate the location of the item in the list - is this possible?

Show zero values
When a formula returns a zero value, the zero value is not being displayed.

Sum variable range of column entries in offset cell
Hi chaps, I’m trying to look up a column of values from an offset cell and sum the column values (or depending on formula used, work out the average, median or mode of the data range in the column).

Creating ID with numbers and text
Hi guys, I'm pretty new to Access but I need some help. I need to create an ID number using first 3 letters of a name followed by 3 numbers that create a unique ID. Is there a way of doing this in the expression builder? Many thanks, I don't think so. You would have to use some VBA. In a case like this, it would be better to use two fields; one for the letters and another for the numbers. You can create an index on the two fields. To get the next available number where the 3 letters are the same, you can do something like this: Private Function NextIdNumber() As Long N...

Duplicate value error although there is no duplicate value

How do you not include 0 value data on a graph?
I have a chart made that is formulated so that data fills in automatically every month. I then have a graph attached that plots the data. My problem is that when there is no data for that month then the graph plots a continuous line that shows 0 after the real data. Is there anything that I can put in the formula so that if there is no value or 0 value it won't plot it on the graph? Hope this question makes sense! Absolutely, use NA() if you don't want to graph the point. -- HTH, Barb Reinhardt "bergie" wrote: > I have a chart made that is formulated ...
