Excel 2010 64 bit

I have a spreadsheet that has over 32,000 rows.

I have many rows I need to modify.

So I filtered the first 9500 since the filter has a 10,000 record limit.

I have this

A   B                                        C         D       E                         F
1   98 This is a file name       1          1     M;\path       =right(b1, len(b1)-3)
2   50 This is a file name       1           2    M:\path        =right(b1, len(b1)-3)
3   66 This is another one      2          1    M:\path          =right(b1, len(b1)-3)


F is so I can strip off the numbers in the rows that contain the number.

When I filter column E which contains the filename and path to that file I get the list of all the files in the first 9,500 records

Problem is when I copy down column F formula to all the rows in the filter it places bad information in the rows. looks like from the wrong cells.

I copied all the filtered rows and placed them into a new page ran the formula on all the rows looked good

But when I copied them into the original spreadsheet over top of the filtered rows they all get bad data again.

How can I modify all these records so I do not have to scroll down thru 32000 rows.

Any help would be appreciated.

Copying over filtered rows will paste regardless of filter. Unfilter, put the formula throughout, copy / paste values, then filter again. You'll have the formula in the right spot.
