Hello:

I often use Pivot tables with multiple different fields in the "Rows" area. When I'm done with the table....I usually copy and paste so I can do normal excel editing. However, Many cells show up as blank because it is is grouped. You can tell this by the border, yet I need to fill in all cells. Is there an option or easy way to do this other than "IF" statements? Thanks for your help. See example Below( I want to fill in "Ice Cream" next to each type instead of it showing blank) This is just an example...I really have a spreadsheet with 60K line items.



Food Type #

Ice Cream Chocolate 5
Vanillia 4
Cherry 2
Pizza Pepperoni 2
Sausage 2
Peppers 2

What is the fastest way to copy a formula?
If A2:A50000 contain data. Enter a formula in B2. Select B2. Double-click the Fill Handle and Excel will shoot the formula down to B50000.
