how to paste data from top to bottom to bottom to top

some of the historical data (monthly data, 1980-jan, Feb, march...1981-Jan, 
feb.march....) are on this format. But i need them to be pasted as the 
otherway around (1981-Dec, Nov.....feb,jan,1980-dec,Nov...feb,jan).

If I had to do this, I'd try to convert each of those non-dates into real dates.

One way is to use a formula:

with 1980-Jan in A1, I could put this in B1
=DATEVALUE(RIGHT(A1,3)&" 1, "&LEFT(A1,4))

Format that cell as a date and see:
Jan 1, 1980

Then you could do pretty much anything you want with that column of real dates.

But the formula you need really depends on all the variation of the values in
your historical data.

Paste special treats cells as a picture
I just got a new computer, and a newer version of excel, which is great, but whenever I try to copy from one file to another, my paste special function treats the copied cells as a picture. Instead of the normal paste special popup, where it asks me how I want the data to come out, I get a different popup that shows the source as a "Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet Object." It asks me what format I want the picture to come out as, and gives me a list of different file formats. If I try to just paste a link, it puts a picture of the other file on the new one. I talked to so...

Journal Entry Data Dump
Our auditors want a data dump (into Excel preferably) of all Journal Entries made during our fiscal year. Does anyone know of a way to accomplish this? Thanks! Kurt, You can do this in SmartList, under Account Transactions. Limit the transaction date range to get just your fiscal year. Remember to change the number of transactions SmartList brings back, since by default it's only 1000. Also, if you get more than about 65,000 transactions back, you will run into Excel limitations, so you may want to break this up further - maybe one export per month. Hope that helps. -- Vict...
