Not sure if this is possible but I need to add a set percentage onto a column of prices in excel, is there any easy way of doing it?

To explain slightly more the sheet is set out

I need to add a set % to the whole trade price column, there's around 500 products so doing it individually takes hours!

In a blank cell put the formula = (trade price cell) + whatever percentage you want
Then hover over the cell. In the bottom right hand corner, there is a black square. Put your mouse over this and your cursor turns into a black cross. Then click and drag and the formula will be repeated in all the other cells below. Hope this makes sense???

because I've just worked that out - told you i knew nothing lol

still, I need to do it for the whole of the column, do i have to do each cell individually?

No, as in the previous post you can grab the square in the right hand bottom corner and drag down the column or just double left click it and it will auto fill the column. Autofill will only continue as long as there is data in the corresponding cell in column J. If say J10 is empty then it will stop autofilling at J9.

Or, once you have created the formula you need in one cell, highlight it with a left button click, then click the right mouse button and select 'copy' then highlight all the cells you want to add the formula to and then select 'paste'

ok getting there
if a do the forumla in a new colum and drag it down it does it right, but if I try to do it over the original values it goes mad lol.

I have found, if I do the new column then copy to notepad, undo changes, then paste from np back to the column that works, so that will do - certainly easier than doing 500+ products manually every week :)

Many thanks to everyone who helped

You can't do it over the original values because they are part of the formula, you will then end up with circualar formula that never end. (if I am understanding you correctly)

If you are doing it every week you could write a simple macro (it is very easy) that will do it all at the press of a button.

get the formula right in the first cell then select the following cells and use the autofill function.
