Is it a formula next to another column?  You can double-click the little black square at bottom right corner.  This will copy down until it finds blank cell in adjacent column.

The first one worked fine.  The second solution worked in one test, but in another test, it froze up my Excel and my PC, so I think the first one is safe.  Thanks.
