In this example, we will demonstrate how to add $35 to each product price without using a formula according to the following steps:

1. Tap the number 35 in any blank cell and copy it.

2. Select the range that you want to change values and right-click, and then choose Paste special… from the menu. See screenshot:

3. Select All option from Paste, and click Add option from Operation in the Paste Special dialog box. See screenshot:

4. Click OK, and all values of the range will be added 35.

By using the Paste Special command, you can change values in a range by the Add, Subtract, Multiply and Divide operation to change values in a range without using a formula. But if you want to apply the Rounding, exponentiation, using a custom expression or function operation to change values in a range, the Paste Special command can’t help you. Is there a quick way to change the values in a range easily? Well, Kutools for Excel’s Operation Tools is the tool you should try.
