Excel discount


I have a column that I would like to apply a percentage discount too in excel, I'd like the user to be able to change the percentage discount by simply entering a new number in a cell, say for example today he wants to add a 10% discount to all prices in column D, when he types in the number the new prices in column D now have the discounted price.

also would it be possible for him to change the price in one cell of column D while always keeping the discounted price? Say he says today he feels like the toaster will 300$, he types in 300 in one of the cells in column D, then the 300 gets mutiplied by the discounted number in the other cell?

Thank you,

Assuming Base Price in D2 and discount as percentage in F1, in E2:


If user wants option available to apply discount to some lines and not others, have column with Y or N option, eg Column G:

It would be simple if you can use a separate column for the discounted price. Then you can just use a formula like:

where he enters say 10 in G1.

If you really want the original values in column D to change (I would not recommend it), you would need code.
