I'm sorry about the issue. What's your Microsoft Office / Excel version, such as 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013, etc.?

Do you have windows xp, vista, or 7, or 8, 10, or mac computer?

Please try the following:

  1. In a blank cell, put the percentage you want and add 1 to it. For example, if you want 5%, then put 1.05 in a blank cell. (Note: 1 + 5% = 1 + .05 = 1.05).
  2. Right-click on that cell, then click on option Copy.
  3. Highlight / select the column you want (or select all the cells in the column you want.)
  4. Right-click on any any highlighted cell in that column, then click on option Paste Special....
  5. Select option Multiply.
  6. Click on OK button at the bottom, then it should work.
  7. You can delete the value in the cell in step #1.
