How do I insert a formula to an existing spreadsheet (containing 100 rows) that extracts info from one cell and places it in another.

HI,
Have a formula that "Barry" helped me with.  It takes certain info from one cell and distributes it to another cell in the row.  My question is:  I need to take that formula and have it work for the other 99 rows below it.  How do I change the "B2" to "B3" "B4" etc.?  And then also, is there a way to take a spreadsheet that has been created from an export (from a software) and APPLY the additional row (with the formulas) to the sheet without having to open the sheet, copy from a completed one and pasting the new column into the new excel sheet.  I hope I am making sense.

I will be working with new excel sheets every two days.  I just need a quick way to pull that info and place into the new column for the entire sheet at one time.

If you are referring to these two formulas

="A"&TEXT(MATCH(2^15,INDEX(SEARCH("A"&TEXT(ROW(INDIRECT("1:1000"))-1,"000"),B2),0))-1,"000")

="L"&TEXT(MATCH(2^15,INDEX(SEARCH("L"&TEXT(ROW(INDIRECT("1:1000"))-1,"000"),B2),0))-1,"000")

then you can see that B2 is a relative reference and once you copy the formula down, the B2 will automatically be B3 and B4 depending on how many rows you copy down.
