From: barkingmad on 11 Feb 2010 10:49 Ms Office Excel 2003 ( Ms Office Professional Edition 2003) I want to 'embed' a formula (eg: *.05) in multiple cells so that when data is then entered into the cells it operates on the data and displays the result. For instance, in the example given, if I then entered '16' into a cell the figure displayed would be '0.8' From: Mike H on 11 Feb 2010 10:55 Hi, One way. Put 0.05 in a cell and give the cell a name (e.g. Factor) then in any other cell you can enter =16*factor and get the answer you require -- Mike When competing hypotheses are otherwise equal, adopt the hypothesis that introduces the fewest assumptions while still sufficiently answering the question.

See Mike's reply for use of a helper cell. For the VBA part............... Right-click on the sheet tab and "View Code" Copy/paste this code into that module.
