Let's say you have a list of values in A1:A10 and you need to increase these values all by 10%. Here is how;

1. Enter the number 1.10 into any blank cell and then Copy it
2. Now select the range A1:A100 and go to Edit>Paste Special
3. Choose Values from under Paste and then Multiply under Operation and click OK.

All value will now have increased by 10%

To decrease the values by 10% you would simply Enter =.901 in any blank cell and repeat the above steps ......
