Excel 2010 :: Paste Options No Longer Showing Up When Clicking CTRL
Jul 30, 2014
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
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.
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 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 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.
Is it possible to lock the computer using VBA. i.e Simulate pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete and then clicking Lock Computer so once this has been clicked the user will have to enter the password to unlock. I thought that using the SendKeys would be a start but this does nothing.
I've created a spreadsheet at work that has two summary tabs which contain hyperlinks to around 30 separate sheet tabs.
On each sheet tab there is a list of unique values in column A (and other information relating to each value in columns B to D which are repeated for more than one unique value). In column E, users enter a test script name against each unique value they wish to 'reserve', and the macro picks out the unique test script names and via the COUNTIF formula counts the frequency of each test script name for each of the different values in column B.
My problem is that the macro seems to work fine if the workbook is not shared, but errors if the workbook is saved as shared. The error is 'Run time error 1004 - Unable to select the MergeCells property of the Range class'.
Here is the macro code:
Sub Get_Policies_Per_Script(updCol As Long, ShtName As String) Dim rowctr As Long Dim tgtrow As Long
Const ppsformula As String = "=COUNTIFS($A$3:$A$65000,I$24,$E$3:$E$65000,$G"
If updCol = 5 Then 'test name column has been modified
how to run some VBA code (written by someone else, unfortunately) only when clicking once in cell A1, and not run in any other cell. This is being run in Excel 2010. The code I would like to run in this manner is below, and currently will run when the user clicks on any cell in the worksheet it is applied.
[ Option Explicit_________________________________________ Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean) 'If IsDate(Target.Cells(1, 1).Value) Then Set DatePickerForm.Target = Target.Cells(1, 1) DatePickerForm.Show vbModal Cancel = True 'End If End Sub ]
My cells have wrap around text enables. However when I double-click the row, it does not automatically adjust the row height to accommodate all of the text. It shrinks to a small row height. How do I fix this?
I upgraded to Excel 2010 from Excel 2000 a couple months ago. In Excel 2010, after double-clicking on values in a pivot table to create a new worksheets, I'm unable to highlight those worksheets and add a column to all of them. I was able to do this in Excel 2000... I can't figure out what's stopping it from happening for the life of me. Am I missing something obvious here?
My problem is this: I use Excel 2010 and have Pivot Tables that are using a Data Connection which is being built (and rebuilt) with VBA. The Pivot Table field is calculating a field that contains an integer value. The Pivot Table field filter properly displays this value.
However, the Pivot Table itself calculated Sum field only displays 0 (aka zero). Other fields that are exactly the same as this one are displaying properly.
My data connection is built as follows:
ThisWorkbook.Connections.Add "ChartQuery", "", "OLEDB;Persist Security Info=0;DSN=Excel Files; DBQ=" & wbFullName & _ ";DefaultDir=" & wbPath & ";DriverId=1046;MaxBufferSize=1024;PageTimeout=5; BackgroundQuery:=False", sSQL, 2 (And yes, my sSQL is sound, there are no typos, no special character issues)
The filter in the Pivot Table shows my value (for example, 14) however it always only displays a zero
My Pivot Table is formatting the field (like the others just like it) as a Number, two decimals My Pivot Table data source is ChartQuery
The worksheet this is pulling from is also set to use Number format for the entire column, but changing that doesn't make any difference even on the other fields that are working.
When I update a cell (change A1 from 2 to 3), any cell that references that cell correctly changes its value (B1 = 2*A1). However, the screen will show the new value in B1 (6) over the previous value (4). At first I thought it almost looked like a strike-through, but then I realized the old value and new value were simply stacked in B1.
If I scroll the screen away that cell and go back to it, the correct value will now show without the stacked values. I'm not having this issue in any other program (Open Office), and I don't seem to be having any kind of stacking issue in any other Microsoft program.
I am having problems creating a chart off of the following data. Each of the cells which have a numerical value are v-lookuping from another sheet. It needs to remain this way as when I switch brands (through data validation), the numbers will update and the chart should as well. Right now, the chart shows these values as zero. I have done this a million times in excel 2007, but now with 2010, I keep having this problem
I would like to accomplish 2 things in my Excel 2010 spreadsheet by click a cell which already has a number and formatting in it.
1. How do I change the color of the cell, the color of the number in it, and the border around it. (Make it look like I just pressed a button by clicking it.)
2. At the same time have the text in different cell and the number in the selected cell appear in another different cell. (Text in a different cell = A , and the number in the selected cell = 23, the value in the resulting cell be "A 23") Everything I would like to happen at the same time by clicking the selected cell. I would also like this to be done several times by clicking different cells and not changing the previously selected cells.
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 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.
