If you want to set formula for whole column, try this.
ActiveSheet.Columns("AB").Formula = "=AA1*K1"

Hi,

pls try

Range(Range("AB1"), Range("AB" & Range("K" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row)).FormulaR1C1 = "=RC[-1]*RC[-17]"

If you just want to put values instead formulas, please try this.
Sub hakan()
    Dim iterrow As Range
    Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
    With ActiveSheet
        For Each iterrow In .UsedRange.Rows
            .Range("AB" & iterrow.Row).Value = .Range("AA" & iterrow.Row).Value * .Range("K" & iterrow.Row).Value
        Next iterrow
    End With
    Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
End Sub

Open in new window

Why would you do that? It's really inefficient to populate an entire column, especially with the new file formats.

.Range("AB" & iterrow.Row).Value = .Range("AA" & iterrow.Row).Value * .Range("K" & iterrow.Row).Value

It stops at above statement with "Type mistake"

The worksheet will create dynamically through VBA and I need to keep 1st row as heading.

Hakan's solution seems suitable in my case when it run with error, Any idea ?

I am not getting any error, can you send a picture of code in your sheet?

@Rory You're right, it is bad to have whole column populated. Last code i've sent stops at the end of used range.

I imagine the error comes from trying to multiply the column headers together.

or try this if you want to skip non numeric values.
Sub hakan()
    Dim iterrow As Range
    Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
    With ActiveSheet
        For Each iterrow In .UsedRange.Rows
            If IsNumeric(.Range("AA" & iterrow.Row).Value) And IsNumeric(.Range("K" & iterrow.Row).Value) Then
                .Range("AB" & iterrow.Row).Value = .Range("AA" & iterrow.Row).Value * .Range("K" & iterrow.Row).Value
            End If
        Next iterrow
    End With
    Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
End Sub
