Using the Calculate tool, you can apply basic mathematical operations, such as addition, multiplication, subtraction, or division, to the entire range in a click. What's more, you can add and subtract percentages or find the percentage of a number - all for multiple cells at once.
How to do quick calculations in Excel
- Select a range that contains the numbers to calculate in your Excel table:
- On the Ablebits Tools tab, in the Calculate group, click the arrow in the Operation dropdown box and select the operation you need to perform. In the Value box, enter a number:
- Click Calculate:
And see the result:
Note. If the cell/range in your table contains a formula, it will be modified according to the operation you select. For example, you have a formula "=A1+B1" in the selected cell and you choose to calculate the percentage "- %50". When you click Calculate, the formula will change to "=(A1+B1)*0.5". In other words, this changes whole formulas, not only values.
