Hi,

 

If you do not want to use formulas in the new column, just copy the original numbers to the new column (say column H). Then in a cell in an empty column type this number

1.105

 

Then select that cell and copy it.

 

Next select column H, right click on the selection and choose Paste Special, then select Multiply and click OK

 

Let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for clicking Accept if you are satisfied with the solution

also what would be th# XXXXX apply for 15%

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

sorry I also asked what # XXXXX apply for 15%

Expert:  John D replied 2 years ago.

It should be 1.105 since you are using the mutiply function

 

As for 15% it should be 1.15

 

Hope this helps

Expert:  John D replied 2 years ago.

Where did I say "drag". What I said was copy a single cell and paste special in the entire column

 

 

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Where do I paste it on the top so that it applies to all the cells in the column?
Expert:  John D replied 2 years ago.
No,you need to select the entire column, then right click anywhere on the selection and choose Paste Special, then select Multiply and click OK
