Default How to change a formula in one cell and have these changes appear

I have the same formula entered in cells A2:A60000, as in cell A1.
However, when I change the formula in A1, I have to (again) copy
it into A2:A60000. Is there a way to avoid this - is it possible to change
the formula in A1 and have it automatically changed in A2:A60000?

Thanks a lot!

Peo

Formula in A1:A60000 is =326 * Q1(incremented)

Change A1 to =426 * Q1

Must re-copy in A2:A60000, yes?

Put =A1 in the other cells although I can't understand why you would need the
same formula in 60000 cells!?

Hello Peo,

Put =A1 in the other cells although I can't understand why you would need the
same formula in 60000 cells!?


I meant to say what Gord said: if B1 = 100*A1, and B60000=100*A60000. If I
want to change B1 to B1=A1/C1, is there a way not to have to recopy this new
formula to cells B2:B60000?

Someone made a good suggestion of entering the new formula in B1 then in Name
Box type B1:B60000 and ENTER then F2 and hit CTRL + ENTER.

Or you could use a macro.

Enter the new formula in B1 then run this.

Sub Auto_Fill()
Dim lrow As Long
With ActiveSheet
lrow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
Range("B1:B" & lrow).FillDown
End With
End Sub
