OMG, I'm such a mess.

I'm going Crazy with this and it's probably something so simple.

I Created a Formula in the table: =<E1>*0.50

to take the dollar amount from <E1> and Multiply it by 50%

Does anyone know how I can copy that down all the rows so that I don't have to do each one by hand?

<E2>*0.50

<E3>*0.50

Etc

Also, if you know how to round the a column to the nearest 25 cents that would help too.

My heads hurts sooooo much. Pleas Help.

You should do such things in Calc. Formulas in Writer are rudimentary.

Or you can insert a Calc object in Writer.
Insert > Object > OLE object > Spreadsheet.
