I figured out how to convert the values in each of the cells at the same
time, using the "paste special" function.

Another question relating to the last post:

Why use =C7*$A$4 rather than =C7*A4?
If you are copying and pasting or using fill down the references increment according to the new location. If you need to reference the same cell you must use $A$1 to tell Calc (or any spreadsheet) that this cell reference does not change when pasting or filling down.

For a column of entries to be multiplied by a constant I have two choices. I can enter the constant into each formula or use an absolute reference to the cell where the constant's value is entered. The latter is generally a better technique because any time you need to change the value you only need to make one entry and all the calculations are automatically updated.
