I have a lengthy spreadsheet (Office 2007) with stocked items and their prices, the prices are simply entered in a cell when I created the spreadsheet, and now number well over 2000, so to save manually working out a price increase for each individual cell, how do I automatically increase all the prices by say 30%?
suppose your data (sample) is like this from A1 to A5
in B1(or any other empty cell in the same row) copy this formula
now copy B1 down
easy way of copying this is select B1 and take the cursor to bottom right of the cell where cursor turns into +
click this + then automatically B1 will be copied down provided there is no gap in the data.
