    execute a function with a cell that already had a value

    Hello,

    This may sound a stupid question. I wonder if I can do a simple function in a cell that already had a value without deleting the value. For example, I have cell A1 = 50.. I want to do a multiply function in cell A1 . I want to get 50* 5 in cell A1, how can I do that without jeopadizing the value already in the cell. You may suggest me why not type = 50*5, imagine I have a spreadsheet will all the data filled in and all I want is get all those numbers multiply for 5 in the same cell to display a new result.

    I may not explain well, appreaciate any inputs or thoughts

    Type 5 off to the side. Copy the 5, then paste special - multiply across all of those target cells. That will multiply everything by 5. (You can delete the random 5 after). Hope that's what you were looking for!
