Multiply an Entire Column by a Number in Excel (without using a formula)

Want to multiply an entire column or range by a number?

You could always use another column and have the formula to do this, but this way is quick and easy if you do not plan on changing the values.

  1. All you need to do is have the number that you want to multiply in a cell (any cell).
  2. Now copy this cell and paste as special in the cells/range/column where you want to multiply it.
  3. In the Paste Special dialog box, choose the multiply option (under operations) and click OK.  You’re column/cells/range should be multiplied!
  4. If desired, can delete the cell that has the value which you multiplied by.

The resulting data is static/fixed so there’s no need to change any formula to value after multiplying using the paste special function.
