Several cells where there is no formulas behind  should be replaced in one workflow with a cell where there is a formula behind with relative references.

 

How can it be done?

These steps:
1. Select the area containing those cells
2. Press the F5 function key (Goto)
3. Click Special
4. Choose Blanks and click OK
5. Start typing your formula as you usually would
6. Instead of pressing the Enter key, press control + Enter to insert this formula (using relative references!) into all selected cells.

Dear Jan Karel Pieterse

 

 

Thank's for your answer :-).

 

I forgot to describe that in the cells without formula behind, there is a time format with the time 00:30:00. The cells do not necessarily stand side by side, but may have empty cells between them.

In order to select those cells you could use find, if they all contain the same value you can click Find all. Then you can drag over the list of found items, close the dialog and enter the formula as I described already.

Dear Jan Karel Pieterse

 

 

Yes, in the meantime before you answered, I found the solution myself.

 

 

Best Regards
