I have a column of prices , I want to insert a column next to it which applies 10.5% to each of the #s Then I want to insert a column next to that one which applies 15% to the oriiginal set of #s also remind me how to apply the formula to the whole column

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

Would it be 1.105 or .105

also what would be th# XXXXX apply for 15%

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

sorry I also asked what # XXXXX apply for 15%

It should be 1.105 since you are using the mutiply function

 

As for 15% it should be 1.15

 

Hope this helps

How do I apply this to all the #s in column Itried dragging it didnt work

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

Where do I paste it on the top so that it applies to all the cells in the column?
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
