**Single formula controls a column**

A Formula located at the base row (the row labeled with the "base" icon), controls all the cells at the same column. In the following screenshot, the formula

**=amount/10**in the

**tax**column sets the values of the cells across the column to be 10 percent of the corresponding values from the

**amount**column.
