I have a column with 688 cells in it. I need to find out how to take each individual cell and add 25% of its value to itself. I do not want to formulate each cell individually. Can I do the formula once and apply to all 688 cells? I know that I can create a new column and formulate it, but I would like to do it to the existing column. Thanks for your help!!!!
 

Excel Facts

Why are there 1,048,576 rows in Excel?
The Excel team increased the size of the grid in 2007. There are 2^20 rows and 2^14 columns for a total of 17 billion cells.

An easy method is to go to a macro (Alt F11) and copy the following to it:

Sub Macro1()
Do While ActiveCell <> Empty
ActiveCell = ActiveCell * 1.25
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
Loop
End Sub

Now go back to the spreadsheet and select the first cell in the column that is not empty. Then call the macro (go to the tools button). This macro will run till it finds a blank. If you do have a blank, then go to the next cell with data and call the macro again.

Hi jkw477:

Welcome to the Board!

Yes you can do that even without a formula. Write 1.25 in an empty cell -- then COPY that cell, then PASTE_SPECIAL|Multiply to all the cells that you want increased by 25%.

Please post back if this is what you needed .., otherwise explain alittle further and let us take it from there.

Regards!

Yogi

Thanks much, that is it! Of course, now that I've been told how to do it, it seems logical (i.e. why didn't I think of that :wink:)
