I often need to use Paste Special . .. Values, using Excel 2003. So I recorded a Macro into "Personal.xls" and assigned a shortcut key combination "CTRL-Shift-V" so that it would always be available. I first select one or more cells and hit CTRL-C to copy to clipboard, click on another cell, then hit CTRL-Shift-V to run the following macro:
It often works . . . and it often fails. When it is working it seems to keep working over and over. When it is failing it keeps failing. So it is almost as if there are two "modes" of operation, which for lack of terms, for this post I will coin the terms "fail mode" and "fixed mode". Once I am in one of the two modes, it stays there for a while. When it is in the "fail mode", I always get the dreaded:
Run-time error 1004: "Pastespecial method of Range class failed".
Since this problem is very intermittent, I believe this is why there are so many posts in the Internet about this, and so many people are replying back "it works fine for me". I have seen many solutions offered but none work so far for just a simple shortcut key to do a PasteSpecial :Values. Some solutions "work" . . . such as adding the PasteSpecial button to the Toolbar, or pressing ALT-E-S-V <Enter> - but both of these bring up the Paste Special dialog box which I want to avoid.
I spent days trying the many solutions offered but so far all I have found is a trick to convert Excel from "fail mode" to "fixed mode". The trick is to add a line to the macro to first do a "Paste Special: Format:
Then select and copy any cell/s, click on another cell, and run the macro just ONCE - it will paste the formatted value successfully and you are now in the "fixed mode". Now you can remove the PasteSpecial:Format line that you just added, to get back to the original macro with just the "Paste Special: Values" line:
Now Excel is in the "fixed mode" and the original macro will once again start working properly. BUT only for a while !! Then some time later, usually within a day or a couple hours . . . Excel goes back into that "mode" where once again the macro fails repeatedly. I have been unable to isolate what causes the mode to return to failure.
Any simple way to either change the code so that it ALWAYS is successful, why this often is not successful ? I believe that the fact that adding in the Paste Special : Format code and running it just once to fix the problem, also could be a clue as to what causes this problem to "sometimes" occur.
I also have a workbook called DecMonthlyTotal in the same folder with the same named worksheets.
I am looking for a macro to be placed in the DecMonthlyTotal that will pull the data from the Cashable12-13 worksheets from Function1, Function2 and Function3 and paste special the values into workbook DecMonthlyTotal, worksheet name Cashable12-13, it will also pull the data from the NonCashable12-13 worksheets from Function1, Function2 and Function3 and paste special the values into workbook DecMonthlyTotal, worksheet name NonCashable12-13
Both the Cashable12-13 and the NonCashable12-13 have Columns A - G The row that the macro should start the copying from is Row 3 for each of the workbooks; however I don't have an end row for the workbooks as this will vary.
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 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 would like to implement specific cell ranges from two specific worksheets each within 33 workbooks (which all have several tabs) into a summary page in a separate workbook.
The cell ranges are going across my spreadsheet in rows and I would like for them to transpose into a columns depending on the data which I have separated by catergory on the summary page. They are all on the same location in each workbook which is separated by country. The cell ranges are E26:P37 and I would like to transpose them and have them put below eachother without overwriting for my format on the summary page, how I can put this together in a macro?
I have 9 worksheets in a book with sheets 1-8 used for data entry, and sheet 9 used for a weekly data upload. Sheets 1-8 are all formatted the same, they just represent different vendors. I need a macro to look through column F (invoice number) on sheets 1-8 and see if the value of each cell already appears in column c on sheet 9. If the value is not found and the row value for column M (sheets 1-8) is >0, I need to copy the data from columns D:K and paste special values into the next blank row on sheet 9.
Basically I'm trying to see if I've already paid an invoice, and if not then I need to automatically add the data for payment. I've tried to mess around with a VBA code myself and ended up with a migraine every time. I've also tried to use the advanced filter, but the cell values I need to copy over contain formulas and conditional formatting...not to mention I can't delete the data on sheet 9 that has already been added.

I have a little bit of problem with lookup function. When i paste values from another worksheet (paste special, values) in a cell which is lookup value i get #N/A. These values are numbers. When i put '7 for example i get the values i want from lookup table. I have a lot of these cells and its tedious job to put ' in front of every value. Is there a quicker solution?
Paste can this be set to default to Paste Special Values only ?
I have a sheet with a number of lists validated drop down boxes. The sheet is networked and works fine.
Problem other users as they are entering information into the required cells they are copying and pasting. Then the inevitable occurs they paste data into the wrong cells the validation from the original cell is pasted as well. Is there a way I can set paste special values only to be the default for the full sheet.
I have a person who needs to be able to copy and paste values very frequently. She would like me to set up a personal macro on her PC that will allow her to be able to right-click in a cell and have a context item that is paste values so she does not need to go to the paste special dialog continually.
E.g: She selects a range from one workbook and copies it, She then selects a cell in a second workbook and pastes the values into the second workbook. She does not mind pasting the formatting, but she does not want to paste the formulas as there are many named ranges in the formulas and if she inadvertently pastes everything, all of a sudden the next time she opens her second workbook there are links to the first. All she wants in the second workbook are the values, not the formulas.
I am trying to copy a range of cells and Need to transpose the values. Easy Enough? When I right-click and paste special, it gives me a new window with an array of options but not the standard Paste special value screen. I have used the others in the past and just pasted text. However this does not give me the paste transpose option which is what I need.
I am sure this is a User error where there is something about the way that I am copying this information but I am Drawing a Blank...
I have a macro that should allow users to change a certain range to values, but I have problems with that last piece. Can anyone tell me what the command is to paste the range as values?
Sub Change_Range() Dim UserRange As Range DefaultRange = Selection.Address On Error Goto Canceled Set UserRange = Application.InputBox _ (Prompt:="Change Range to Values:", _ Title:="Range Change", _ Default:=DefaultRange, _ Type:=8) UserRange.Copy UserRange.PasteSpecial Canceled: End Sub
I have a workbook which contains lots of formula and is therefore very large (about 70 mb). The sheet pulls information from field instruments every hour of every day for the entire year.
I want to write a macro, that loops through a range (B5:B8764) and copies the entire row if the value in column B is less than =NOW() - 7 days. The copied rows should then be pasted with values only exactly where they were located e.g. row 5 should be pasted back to row 5 the only difference being only the values will be pasted.
I have a perplexing problem. I created code to copy a worksheet that has the correct page setup and then copy/paste special to get just the values, not the formulas from the master sheet. It works standalone - the copied worksheet after doing the paste/special just has the data along with the master sheet's original page setup. When I include the code within a For Each... loop, it only copies the worksheet and I get the formulas. What is different between the two approaches that would cause the loop code to not do the paste/special values?
create a macro to perform paste special as value function. First scenario.. IF cell A2 is equal to 1 copy paste special values in I2:J2 cells ( this cells are formula.. need to perform paste special to prevent it in updating)then IF A3 is equal to 2 copy paste special values in I3:J3 cells.same action till A31. Second scenario is if O2 cell has a value of 100% copy paste special as values formula in K2 cell, then if O3 cell has a value of 100% copy paste special as values formula in K3 cell.. same action till O31 cell. take note I manually input values in A2 TO A31 cells as well as on O2 to O31 cells. I want the macro to perform the paste special as values only when I put value in Cell A. and Cell O (CELL A and CELL O are not dependent to each other so they should function individually in the macro).
I have a few Excel files in use in my tv station's newsroom. The purpose is to allow Producers to enter text and then send that data to on-air character generators.
Here is the problem I'm running into: I have protected the sheets, which contain unprotected cells so the users can enter data....but if they copy something from a web page and paste it into the Excel file, that cell's formatting changes to include the html coding that was also (inadvertantly) copied.
How can I set up Control+V to ALWAYS act like "Paste Special/Values" so that only the text-content is pasted and the formatting of the cells in the my Excel files is not touched?
Sub import() On Error Resume Next Dim wb As Workbook Dim c As Range Dim rngTo As Range
For Each c In Range("D1:D10").Cells Set wb = Workbooks.Open(Filename:=c.Value) With Workbooks("DigitalTicketMaster.xls"). Sheets("All") Set rngTo = .Range("A" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0) End With wb.Sheets("Combined").Range("A2:C100").Copy rngTo wb.Close ............................................. we have a change on our sheet, make it easy for our guys. Column A, is the date. Today 6/29.
They enter it once at the top, and it pastes for them automatically (a simple cell = $E$1)
But now, when I use the macro, it pastes over the formula that I don't want nor need, and have to call the second macro for. But then everything in that column shoes E1 on my new sheet, which is not the date... and each sheet changes dates, so I can't just have the date all the same.
What can I do in my original code to still make it loop, pull all my pages that I tell it to, but paste values only?
Would it be possible, in my loop, to highlight my cells, on that sheet... A2:C100, copy them, paste themselves right onto themselves, as values only, then copy over to my new sheet?
For some reason the following code, when executed, pulls a named range from the source workbook (sProj_Name). I feel like I have used this exact same code before and not encountered this issue. This named range is linked to the source workbook so if I save the file and re-open I get the wonderful 'would you like to update links' pop up. I cant figure out why, when I am forcing it to paste only values and formats, it is picking up this named range. In addition the source workbook has way more than one named range, so why it doesn't pull all instead of just one is a mystery to me as well.
VB: With Workbooks(sProj_Name).Worksheets(2) .Cells.Copy Sheet2.Cells(1, 1).PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues Sheet2.Cells(1, 1).PasteSpecial Paste:=xlFormats Application.CutCopyMode = False End With
I use to have a macro that could copy formulas from non contiguous ranges and paste the values in the same cells. So for example, I could select a non contiguous range like B5:B10, E10:F12, and G1:G10. The macro would then copy and paste the values in those 3 ranges, so those 3 ranges would be values instead of formulas.
I think it worked by storing each range and then looping through each range to copy and paste special values.
In the code below, I am copying information from a master sheet to various sub-sheets, but I cant figure out how, based on the way I have written my code, to copy and paste special values. I commented out the line that I need pasted special values.
Dim intData As Integer Set wsData = Worksheets("Data") LastRow = wsData. Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row Set wsCrit = Worksheets.Add wsData.Range("E3:E" & LastRow). AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterCopy, CopyToRange:=wsCrit.Range("E3"), Unique:=True LastRowCrit = wsCrit.Range("E" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row For I = 4 To LastRowCrit Set wsNew = Worksheets.Add wsNew.Name = wsCrit.Range("E" & I).Value wsNew.Range("a3").Value = "Estimator" wsNew.Range("a5").Value = "IP Number" wsNew.Range("b5").Value = "Project Name" ......................
I am trying to create a macro to copy multiple sheets to a single named worksheet, all within the same workbook. The code below works, except I want to copy only the data (no formulas). Can I add code to paste values, or do I need to start over?
Public Sub CopyandPaste() Dim ws As Worksheet Worksheets("Summary").UsedRange.Delete For Each ws In Worksheets If ws.Name <> "Summary" Then ws.Range("a2"). CurrentRegion.Copy _ Destination:=Worksheets("Summary").Range("A65536").End(xlUp)
