    Copy/Paste (Excel 97)

    A silly question . . . would there be a faster wat to copy a formula at, say, B1 to B10100 instead of copying the formula, holding the shift and page down key until I reach B10100?

    If there are values in A1 to A10100, then you could type the formula in B1 and double click on the fill handle.

    Another way: while B1 is the active cell:

    Press Ctrl+G (or select Edit | Go To...) to display the Go To dialog.
    Enter B10100 in the Reference box.
    Press Shift+Enter (or hold Shift while clicking OK) to select the range from B1 to B10100 (without Shift, you'd select only B10100.)
    Press Ctrl+D (or select Edit | Fill | Down) to copy the formula.

    Takes longer to write down than to do...

    Hello Servando,

    F5 and Ctrl+G are both shortcuts for Edit | GoTo...

    But Ctrl+Enter doesn't work (for me, at least) unless I press F2 before it to edit the formula in B1.

    Hi Hans

    Sorry, you are right... I forgot to say, that before pressing Ctl+Enter, is necessary to type the formula, then...

    Press F5
    Enter B10100 ...
    Press Shift+Enter ...
    <font color=red>Type your formula, </font color=red>
    and then Press Ctrl+Enter.

    thanks for the observation.
