Since 100% is equal to one, 15% off can be represented as 100%-15%, or
1-15%, so if your retail price is in column A:

B1: =A1 * (1-15%)

which is also equivalent to

B1: =A1 * 85%

You can copy that formula in B1 down as far as necessary.

I need a formula that will figure a percentage off.

I have a column that is Retail Price and I need a formula that will auto
fill 15% off the retail price of each cell in the previous column.

I hope I am explaining this correctly.
