    Please help need to fill a column cells with a value based off another cell

    I can solve my problem with an IF() statement in every cell of the spreadsheet but is there a way to do the following

    say in column y row 14 is a date of 01/01/14
    I would like to populate row 16 through row 30 with the letter H without having formulas in every cell. I think this is probably a macro type situation but I am no good with macros

    thanks in advance for the help

    In which columns would you like this to occur?

    Thank you for your help but i must be missing something i am learning but do not understand the date serial format. Do I need to format cell Y14 a certain way or just have 01/01/14 in the cell?
