Copy formulas for selected cells fast and easy

Excel 365 2016 2013 2007 2003
You can use "Copy" (Ctrl+C) and "Paste" (Ctrl+V) options, but there is faster way to "copy" a formula to multiple adjacent cells.

Follow these steps:

   1.   Select all the cells that will contain the formula (dragging so that the cell that you will write the formula in is the first of the selected group of cells).

   2.   Enter the formula into the first cell.

   3.   Press Ctrl+Enter and the formula is placed in all the selected cells.
