Default how do i increase the value of numbers in a column by a percentage

1. In cell H 1 I have:-

10

2. In cell I 1 I have:-

=(H1*10%)

3. Just copy the formula above down the column:-

- Ctrl-C in cell I 1

- highlight cells I 2 to I 6000

- Ctrl-V to paste.

The above should achieve what you want.

If my comments have helped please hit Yes.

Thanks.

Say you want to add 10% to all prices, then enter 1,1 in an unused cell,
copy the cell, then select the price column, and goto Edit PasteSpecial
Operation: Multiply.
