Is there a way to fill or copy/paste Formulas in a column from within a Report?

I have a column in my report that I want to fill in the column cells with a formula WHILE IN MY REPORT. In the report, if I copy and paste a column's cell that uses a formula, it just copies the value not the formula. If I try to type the formula directly into the column's cell in the report, the formula just appears as text.

    Hi @Kimie

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Here's a possible workaround or workarounds

    • You can add a unique character and then use find and replace to activate the formula in the sheet(s).

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic day!
