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...Copy and paste formula; Value pastes instead
I've tried starting several worksheets, checking formats,
pasting special (formula only). For some reason the
formula actually copies OK by looking at the formula bar,
but the value in the cell is identical to the value of
the copied cell.Incorrect. Tried even the simplest
formulas with no joy.

I copy something to the clipboard using Publisher 2007 and the computer tells
me it is in the clipboard; however, when I go to paste that information into
another document, Publisher acts like it is not there. I then need to close
the document I wish to paste it into, reopen it, and then, like magic, there
is the information in the clipboard and I am able to paste it. UGH!!!!!!
Open the Office Clipboard in Publisher. Edit, Office Clipboard. What program
are you pasting to? If it is an Office program, open the Office Clipboard in
that program too.
I have a form on one sheet in excel, on the next sheet i have mad
different coloums with different headings. I want the data from th
form to be copyed to each heading e.g. name in form is copyed to unde
the coloum with title name.
So each time a user fills in there details he/she clicks submit an
there data is copyed to the next page, like a small database.
Is there a macro that can do this as i keep getting different error
each time. I want this to continue in a loop

...pasting the result of a search
TIA once again.
I have a macro that will search a wide range of cells to find a
particular piece of data.
when it finds that data, i need the macro to copy that data exactly 5
cells to the right of where it finds it.
i can find the data, copy the data, (so that the little ants are
running around the cell) but i do not know how to paste it to a
different location that is based upon the original location.
i tried to use "offset" but it seems like it requires a starting
range, and the starting range will be different each time the macro

A client of mine is running Excel 2000. When they select Paste
Special, CSV is not available as an option.
The data she's copying is not the problem since I have tested it here.
When you copy, you're copying raw data, not a file. If you want to
convert XL data to .CSV, you need to take the data to a separate
workbook and do a File, Save As, and select CSV.

If I have Data in cells A1 to A10

Is there away to do this without having to highlight those cells, this would
save me allot of time.
Thanks in Advance
When you paste, it pastes the amount of stuff you've copied. If you've
copied 10 vertical cells, that's what it's gonna paste. You need only
select the top-left-most cell before you do a paste.

Even I checked the box under tools/edit/show paste button, I can not copy and

How can I make the paste function work again? When I am in a work book, or
click on Edit, the "paste" option is not highlighted on the toolbar.
Sounds like a worksheet protection issue - check that the worksheet where the
paste button is disabled is not protected.

If the dimension of your paste area is a multiple of the dimension of
your copy area, Excel will repeat the copy all the way down.
