You can teach Excel a new custom list. Type the list in cells, File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists, Import, OK

Hello,

Enter 100 in a cell, select this cell, then select EDIT --> COPY, then select the cells with 8765, 1234 etc. then select EDIT --> PASTE SPECIAL, and check the DIVIDE check box.

Type 100 in a spare cell and copy it to the clipboard. Select your list of numbers, right click, choose Paste Special, check divide and click OK.
