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..."Paste Special" with the right click mouse
I would like to have the option of "Paste Special" with the right click mouse
in all microsoft office suite.

What are the differences between paste and paste special and
are these two functions the same for XP software from different
sources? e.g Word, Publisher, Ventura and Word Perfect?

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.
...concatenate will not paste special
I am trying to concatenate first name and last name columns, all is good
till I copy and paste special.....It say copy and paste area is not the same

into a new spread sheet and concatenate it works, except in certain records
it drops the actual name and I end up with a blank field, that causes great
grief when I send said data to another process that strips blank lines and
shifts remaining data up resulting in an absolute train wreck of srong names
to addresses. Help

We have a number of Excel users in our office who cannot copy and paste
between Excel workbooks. They can copy and paste between worksheets. When
you highlight the section to copy and then go to the new workbook both the
and paste special are "grayed out". This is true whether you right-click the
mouse, go to the edit menu, or use control keys. This occurs with any data
type and the most simple workbooks. I have seen some suggestions here but
none have worked for this particular problem. I have reset the menus and

...Paste Special, Formulas, is also pasting values. Why?
I'm making a worksheet with multiple sections of calendarized expense
data by region. I want to add some formulas to the first region, then
paste the formulas into the other regions. Is it not possible to paste
only, formulas, without pasting the values from the first region as

I'm following the instructions to place a linked object in Publisher. I COPY
my text box from one Publisher file, then go to Paste Special in another
file. But the Paste Link option is dimmed and I can't choose it. What can I
do to link objects in Publisher???
From Publisher's help
You cannot create a link to this type of object from that particular program; you can
only embed it.
The program you want to link from either doesn't allow you to link objects from it or
it doesn't support linking for that type of object.

I want to paste a ROW of cells from one excel file using "past special" and

The result of a simple formula should be a whole number.
However, when I used Copy, Paste Special, Values it
returns decimal values that are slightly above or below
the expected whole number. For example, when A1 contains
the value 49.931, copying the value from the formula (A1-
49)*1000 yields 930.999999999997. Any explanation would
Its because 10 divided by 3 for instance is 3.333333 etc. If you format it
to 2 decimal places it displays as 3.33, but the actual value is still
3.333333333 to I believe in Excel 15 decimal places, though I may be wrong

Can anyone tell me if there is any difference with the
right-click Paste Special on Excel 97 and Excel 2000 or XP?
I have 2000 and XP. I don't used 97 any more so thats why I
