Copying formulas: If you have that formula entered in one cell, you can click in that cell, then position your mouse over the little black box in the bottom right corner of that cell. Grab the black box and drag straight down, it should copy the formula into each cell you drag down to. To set coupon overages to zero: If you want .971 to equal zero (you aren't getting overages), then you could enter .97 in cell 1A, 1.00 in cell 1B, and in cell 1C, enter this formula: =IF(B1>A1,0,+A1B1) That says "IF B1 (the coupon value) is larger than A1 (the product price) then enter zero  otherwise, subtract the coupon from the product price."

This might be an easier way to do what Jakejake wrote. First put in the formula you want to have in the column. Then highlight the column by clicking on the first cell that has the formula and drag it down (you can go as far as you want) then click on "EDIT" then go down to "FILL" and use fill Down and that will copy the formula down. If you want it to show negative numbers you need to format the cells  click on the top of the column so it highlights the entire column and then right click and go to format  then click on currency  then you can select how you want the numbers to show with or without the $ sign and how to show negative numbers.

Oh, yeah it would depend if you want to show .971 as negative .03, in which case use SLance's method, or if you want to show a 97 cent item with a dollar coupon as just free, then use my formula.
