Enter values in multiple cells

Ctrl + Enter

By Neale Blackwood

Ever wanted to enter the same value, say zero, into a range in one go? Ever wanted to enter a formula into a range in one step? Well Ctrl + Enter will do it.

Select a range, preferably a blank range. Type 0, hold the Ctrl key and press Enter. Zeros will be entered in all the cells. This can work for formula as well, but you have to note the active cell and create the formula to work for the active cell and hold Ctrl and press Enter once you have finished the formula. Excel will enter relative reference formula unless you use mixed and fixed references in your formula.
