o Type zero in an empty cell.
o Copy the zero.
o Select the (partially filled) cell range you wish to treat.
o Go to Edit | Paste Special... (or right-click | Paste Special... or Ctrl+Shift+V).
o In the Paste Special dialogue, under Operations, select Add.

Alternatively, you may want to consider the simpler solution of modifying any formulae that refer to these cells to treat empty cell data as if it were zero. It's generally possible to do this. But that may not be suitable if the columns you describe are part of a final printout, say, of your spreadsheet.

I trust this helps.
