Excel 2010 :: How To Move The Paste Options (Ctrl) Popup Box
Apr 19, 2012
When I copy a cell with CTRL-C and paste elsewhere, a small clipboard pop-up appears to give paste options. The pop-up is the size of an average 'starter' cell. I find it a nuisance as it always covers a cell I might want to paste into, but I cannot see that cell anymore because of the pop-up. How can I get rid of the pop-up?
I'm currently using Excel 2010. Before, when ctrl+v'ing a cell that wasn't a number (but was, for example, a function), I could immediately after press ctrl, bring up a paste menu, and press v to paste as a value.
So before, if I had a range of cells that were functions (say something simple like "=D3/E3" on F3 and dragged down), I could do the following to paste the range into another worksheet:
1. Ctrl+shift+down to select the entire range 2. Ctrl+C 3. Ctrl+V into a different worksheet (at which point everything shows up as either "#DIV/0!" or as the wrong number, depending on cells to the left) 4. Ctrl (brings up the paste menu) 5. V (selects "values") 6. The entire range is now pasted as values, and not as functions
Recently, however, clicking on "ctrl" after pasting brings up no paste menu. I haven't changed any settings. I will lovingly serenade the first (and second, and third) man (or woman) that figure out what settings I must change or what I must do differently.
I am using excel 2010 and cant see the paste special options in any of the worksheets. If I restart my laptop then it shows up. I noticed that after opening Internet explorer, the options disappear once again and restarting the system brings them back.
I was thinking of how the Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) macro can be used to paste values instead of formula when the user uses Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V. Instead of assigning a macro to a command button for user to activate.
Suppose I have a worksheet where the range ("D7:D56") is where I would want the user to paste his values in it. I have to factor in the possibility that these values have formulas attached to them, and that the user is not tech-savvy enough to know about the "paste special --> values" functionality of excel, and chooses to use the Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V method instead.
What then appears are ####### which might alarm the user.
Neither would we want the user to press a button (which we can assign the xlpastevalues macro as an alternative) as that adds an extra step for the user. There is also a chance the user might not use the button, or overlooked it.
Is it possible to use the Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) macro, or sth similar, to paste values instead of formula when user uses Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V?
I am trying to copy one worksheet using the "move/copy" function that is available when you right click a tab name and want to copy the worksheet in the same workbook
The steps I'm using are:
1. Right click the tab name 2. Select Move or Copy, 3. Select Create a Copy 4. Click OK
Doing all of the above does not work. When the new worksheet opens, all columns are the same width. It seems to be stuck on "autofit column width" setting of 8.5. The original worksheet is several columns wide all with different width settings.
I've also used Copy, Paste Special and selected column widths and that does not work either.
I am trying to create a scatterplot from some data I have. I attempt this by selecting multiple columns using Ctrl and clicking on the letters above. This results in it plotting only the first selected column on the Y axis with only 1 2 3... on the X axis.
When I however select multiple columns by clicking on a column and dragging to more columns it does plot as I would expect with the first column as X values and the rest Y values.
I know it is possible to create a graph and add data manually but this is way slower and I think that it should be able to be done differently.
I am using Excel 2010 and I have a password protected workbook with password protected sheets that uses several macros. Most of them, in order to run, have to un-protect the sheet and then re-protect it again. This has been accomplished easily enough by adding ActiveSheet.Unprotect Password:= "mypassword" and ActiveSheet.Protect Password:= "mypassword" to the appropriate places in the script. All of my macros, which do various things like sorting and moving data, deleting blank rows, displaying dialog boxes containing warning messages etc. run fine.
My problem is this: when I password protect the sheets manually, I have checked the following options in the "Protect Sheet" dialog box. Under "Allow users of this worksheet to" I have checked 1)Select unlocked cells and 2)Format cells. After entering my password and closing the dialog box my sheet is protected, but I can edit cells in the manner my allowances permit. However, once I run any of the macros that un-protect and re-protect the sheet, I remain able to select and edit unlocked cells (practically, for my purposes, this means that I can input data which will appear in the default font size and color of the sheet) but I cannot format cells (which, practically, for my purposes would allow me to occasionally change the font color and size of the data). Naturally, after running a macro, the other cell-formatting options are unavailable to me as well. Is there any way to get my manual selections to remain in place after running a macro that functions as mine do? Or is there any way to make my manual selections the default settings for a protected sheet?
I have an excel spread sheet and on the last column on the right hand side I have some comment boxes but when I hover over them they pop up to the right of the cell, and then they are off the screen.
Can I alter it to make the comment box pop up to the left side of the cell.
Is it possible to adapt this code to get me the desired results or will it have to be a separate one.
Also i'm not sure if I have the code right because if I run the macro then open a comment box in the (M) column as in the code the comment box is the default size then if I run the macro again once I have the little red tick in the corner of the it changes to what the code says.
I am using Excel 2010 and need a macro that can convert data from rows to columns. I have read several posts about this subject but have no experience with macros and don't know how to change the macros to fit my scenario.
I am trying to copy a file, rename it, and save it to a new folder. I keep getting a "Compile Error ; Syntax Error" at line FileCopy (ImagePath & oldName, NewPath & newName). I am using Excel 2010.
FileCopy (ImagePath & oldName, NewPath & newName)Sub RenameFiles() 'Renames file based on "sheet 1" - Column 1 Old file name - Column 2 New file name Dim oldName As String Dim myfile As String Dim newName As String Dim ImagePath As String Dim NewPath As String
I'm using Windows 7, Excel 2010 on PC. I have a graph set up based on my teams performance. Below I will attempt to lay out the graph and what I'm looking for. What I'm trying to make happen here, is have my jpeg, or bitmap which is represented by 0 to move as the graph increases or decreases. Example, right now if I input my data and sayJ.P. increases two points I end up with this -------0--. Or if Y.P. decreases by two points I end up with ---- 0. Is there anything I can do to have my picture adjust with the graph?
did in [URL] but my issue is complicated by not knowing what cell I need to move the graph to.
I am using Excel 2010 and I am a realitive novice at writing VBA code.
In My spreadsheet, I have a list of properties and some related cost info. From week to week, the number of properties varies. Some days I will have 6 properties and others I could have 100. Because of this, I need to make all of my references relative to other cells. I am having trouble repositioning the graphs that I have created from the data to be 2 cells below the label I have created for the graph (which is a merged cell covering Columns B:I on a row 3 rows below the last property in the report.
So far, I have:
Dim r1 As Range, r2 As Range, GraphRange As Range Cells(2, 1).Select Selection.End(xlDown).Select
I am trying to create a Dashboard in excel (2010) using tables/pivot tables to build it. The data I am bringing into excel has these key fields of data: cost center+cost center description, general ledger account+general ledger account description, and YTD amount.
My problem is the data is from an external source report and the report has subtotals built in at cost center, and the report's format of subtotaling puts the cost center first and then the general ledger accounts below. There is no formula value in the cell that has the subtotaled amount and the number of general ledger accounts can vary depending on whether there has been general ledger activity.
I want to take this format: July YTD Cost Ctr 1050 XYZ$6.00 625110 Supplies$2.00 650150 Postage$2.00 650550 Fees$2.00 Cost Ctr 1052 ZZZ$4.00 670500 Pens$2.00
and have it look like this Cost CenterCost Center DescrGL AcctGL Acct descYTD Amt 1050 XYZ 625110 Supplies $2.00 1050 XYZ 650150 Postage $2.00 1050 XYZ 650550 Fees $2.00 1052 ZZZ 679200 Pens $2.00
Besides manually doing data moves and assigning a unique sort sequence number to keep the records together, how else can I quickly move my cost centers to a new column and keep the cost center with the gl account and $amount?
I am running Excel 2010. I have two separate instances of Excel running. I select data and copy it, and then paste it into the other excel spreadsheet in a separate instance. The clipboard data DOES NOT paste the desired data, instead it pastes the item most recently copied in the separate Excel instance that I am trying to paste into. It's as if the excel instance has it's own clipboard, and is unable to use the same clipboard the other Excel instance is using. Copy and paste functions / clipboard seems to working perfectly outside of the Excel program.
I have a system running Windows 7 Professional (32 bit) and MS Office 2010.
In Excel 2010, I have a spreadsheet that contains several hundred rows of data. When I cut and paste a section of data, Excel jumps to the top of the spreadsheet. This does not happen when I copy/paste, just cut/paste.
I'm using Microsoft 2010 and as like many others here I cannot find a way to paste into visible cells only i.e. the data I want to add to my variables is only available for every five years, but my data ranges 1990-2010 each year, so I have filtered my data to the 1990,1995,2000,2005,2010 so that I can paste the new data in, but of course it pastes into 1991 1992 1993 etc instead of the filtered results.
I've tried the find and select visible cells only but it says when you try and paste into them that it is not possible for more than one cell at a time.
The problem is that whenever I have any browser open, IE, Chrome, Firefox, etc... the Cut & Paste, Copy & Paste function does not work correctly in Excel 2010.
When I Cut or Copy the blinking marquee around my selection briefly appears and then disappears. When I try to paste, I only have two options under the paste special function: Unicode Text and Text, same with cut and paste, however, the text doesn't actually cut, it only copies.
As soon as I close down any of the mentioned browsers, the full functionality of the cut/copy & paste functions are restored, no need to restart excel.
I need to have open a browser most of the time for work as our system is web based, so closing and re-opening is more than just an annoyance.
to complete the field using the other sheets value if it's not empty, where $K$7 references a worksheet name based on the previous month.
It's working just fine, but I want to copy and paste it into other cells having the referenced cell, C45, change as I move it around the sheet (if I copy and paste it 3 cells to the right it would become =IF(INDIRECT($K$7&"!C48")>"",INDIRECT($K$7&"!C48"),"").
I haven't been able to find a way to make the C45 cell reference dynamic while copying and pasting. It would save me a ton of time if I could.
I have found instructions on the Net for stopping that rather intrusive 'Paste Options' pop-up button appearing in Excel 2003, 2007 and 2010 (I think; or it might have been 2011). But I have Excel 2008, and none of the instructions I have found applies. I cannot find a Microsoft Office button (other than the icon of the folder in Applications); nor is there 'Options' in the File menu. I use a Mac mini (Intel) with OS 10.8.4 (Mountain Lion).
Paste URL as Hyperlink: I just want to paste a bunch of urls into a spreadsheet and have them automatically formatted as urls. i've checked my auto-correct options, and i have selected the checkbox that says: replace as you type/internet and network paths with hyperlinks.
See attached. if you copy and paste a url into the spreadsheet, it will be formatted as text.
Format Existing URLs as Hyperlinks : the attached spreadsheet contains urls that have been copy & pasted. is there a way to format them as hyperlinks all at once?
I have on sheet "Charts" in cell "B20" a "date from" and in cell "C20" a "date to" (these will be input manually).
What I need is to check Column "F" on sheet "Report" for any cells within those dates, I then want to copy the entire row(s) that contain these dates and paste them into sheet "Weekly" starting at cell "A2".
Excel 2010, Windows 8.1. I want to retrieve a photo from a folder and paste it into a cell. I have the paste and format process figured out but I'm having trouble putting the file path together to retrieve the photo. If I use the full path, the statement below retrieves "IMAG1234.jpg" and puts it where I want it.
