Multiplying a column of data by a constant

I am budgeting costs for the upcoming year. There is a column of data that
corresponds to the employee's health insurance cost that is keyed in data
(not a formula). I want to multiply each cell in this column by 1.1 to
project a 10% increase in cost. Is there quick way to do this without
creating a new column and pasting over the original?

Put 1.1 in a spare cell and COPY this cell.

Highlight your column, then do Paste Special =>[Operation]==>Multiply

Delete 1.1 from your "working" cell

Try this:

Enter 1.1 in an empty cell
Copy that cell: Edit>Copy
Select the range of cells you want to increase
Goto Edit>Paste Special>Multiply>OK
Delete the 1.1

Zach

Put 1.1 in an unused cell.

Copy it.

Select your data range and Edit>Paste Special>Multiply>OK>Esc.

Delete cell with the 1.1
