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.
...Create simple line graph in Excel!!!!!
Ok, I've struggled with this far too long now.
And abandoned the task a number of times over the past year.
So, I'm going to ask you now.
I have two columns of data:
Where u to z, and a to f represent numbers.
I want to see a simple graph with one column representing the
X axis, and the other column, representing the Y axis.
And a line, showing the relationship between the two.
It should be simple right? Unfortunately, it hasn't.
I've tried to create a scatter graph with lines.
And a line graph.

I'm trying to update a legacy Visual C++ (V7.10) project.
I added a new ComboBox from the Toolbox, and then right-clicked to

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!!!!!!

are you pasting to? If it is an Office program, open the Office Clipboard in
that program too.
...Make lines thicker
I'm using Excel XP. I have a graph with 7 different lines
and I would like to have one of the lines really stand
out. To do this, it would be nice to make this line
thicker and bolder than the others. However, the thickest
line option available only makes the line marginally
I suppose I could make the line I want to stand out

I hate to ask again, but I had this all set up with by default - no Grid
lines, but after a crash, well I have even lost the email with the info.
Would someone please help out again and tell me how to remove grid lines as

You can create a new default template, with your preferred settings:
1. Open a new workbook.
2. Select all the sheets, and choose Tools>Options
3. On the View tab, remove the check mark for Gridlines, click OK
4. Ungroup the sheets

when it finds that data, i need the macro to copy that data exactly 5

i can find the data, copy the data, (so that the little ants are

A client of mine is running Excel 2000. When they select Paste

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.

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.
