Use WPS Office to open the table and select the cell need to be operated.

Place the mouse cursor at the lower right corner of the cell, when the cursor turn into a cross, click and drag down to select all the cells that we want to fill data.

Then click the icon appeared in the lowerright corner, then select Flash Fill in the drop-down menu (or use shortcut key Ctrl+E).

Note: Flash Fill can provide a filling rule that best meets the users' needs by comparing the relationship between strings.

The more correspondences we provide, the more accurate the judgment can be.

This skill could be also used in Microsoft Office Excel and Openoffice.
