Changing Multiple Cells at Once in Excel

There are a few different ways that you can change multiple cells at once in Excel. One way is to use the "Find and Replace" feature. To do this, click on the "Edit" menu, then click on "Find and Replace." In the "Find what" field, type in the text or value that you want to replace. In the "Replace with" field, type in the text or value that you want to use as a replacement. Then, click on the "Replace All" button. This will replace all instances of the text or value that you specified in the "Find what" field with the text or value that you specified in the "Replace with" field.

Another way to change multiple cells at once is to use a cell reference. For example, let's say that you have a list of numbers in column A, and you want to multiply each number by 2. You could do this by typing the following formula into cell B1:

=A1*2

Then, you could drag this formula down to cell B2, B3, B4, etc., and Excel would automatically update the cell references for each row. So, cell B2 would contain the formula =A2*2, cell B3 would contain the formula =A3*2, and so on.

You could also use a cell reference if you wanted to concatenate (combine) multiple cells together. For example, let's say that you have a list of first names in column A and a list of last names in column B, and you want to create a full name for each person in column C. You could do this by typing the following formula into cell C1:

=A1&" "&B1

Then, you could drag this formula down to cell C2, C3, C4, etc., and Excel would automatically update the cell references for each row.
