Hi Experts

I have an excel sheet in which I have the data for a large number of items. Many times I have to apply the same formula on large cell ranges. I find it pretty hard to drag the mouse to large ranges, and I have to do such thing quite often.

Please suggest some easy method by which the formula given in Cell B1 can be easily dragged to the right hand side for the last cell located at -
Row B - column number 120
Row B - column number 180
Row B - column number 550


I do not want to manually drag the formula cell to those 3 locations manually.

Please suggest some short cut keys or some other method. And what if I had to drag the formulas down and not towards the right hand side ? I know, simply clicking on the bottom right corner of the cell, copies it ALL THE WAY DOWN to the last cell in the adjacent column, but what if I have to move it down to just specific cells like -

Column B - Row 50
Column B - Row 220
Column B - Row 785


Please suggest various methods by which this could be done.
Any ideas are most welcome.

I am using the following software versions -
Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio version-  12.0.2000.8,
Microsoft Office 2016 x64
and Windows 7 x64

Thanks
