Why don't you just copy the formula down? Once you enter it as an array formula, in the initial cell, you can simply copy it down like any other formula

Ok, use something like this:
'substitute for your column, formulas etc
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
lastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
Range("A8").Formula = "=$L$1/$L$2" 'substitute your formula '<-- you can skip this is you have the formula as an array formula in the spreadsheet
Range("A8").AutoFill Destination:=Range("A2:A" & lastRow)
