VBA For PasteSpecial Values ONLY?

Nov 25, 2008

I was wondering if there is some VBA code that I can put in my spreadsheet that would only allow Paste Special Values?

I want to make sure that the user can not simply cut and paste. If possible it would be nice if the user doesn't know what is going on all they need to know is that they can copy and paste.

Is there a seamless way to accomplish this?

VBA PasteSpecial Format & Values

Jan 14, 2007

I am trying to copy a range from one sheet and paste in another sheet via VBA.

ActiveSheet.Paste Destination:=Range("IV1").End(xlToLeft).Offset(0, 1)
Column E has formulas (=SumB3:D3) nothing more then that. I get a #REF after the paste into the FORCAST sheet.

I would like to Paste Values and Formats.

I tried changing the code to this, with different variations:

ActiveSheet.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormats, xlPasteValues _
Destination:=Range("IV1").End(xlToLeft).Offset(0, 1)

But keep comming up with errors.

Pastespecial Formulas & Formats Pastes Values

Apr 28, 2007

The problem: I am getting values when doing a pastespecial for formulas and formats.

Manually copying and doing a pastespecial with the mouse gives me the correct results. Below is code I got from the forum, "here", and am running in a test workbook.

Option Explicit
Sub Test2()

Dim rSource As Excel. Range
Dim rDestination As Excel.Range
Set rSource = ActiveSheet.Range("A1:C1")
Set rDestination = ActiveSheet.Range("A1").End(xlDown).Offset(1, 0)


Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormats, _
Operation:=xlNone, _
SkipBlanks:=False, _

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteFormulas, _
Operation:=xlNone, _
SkipBlanks:=False, _


Application.CutCopyMode = False

Set rSource = Nothing
Set rDestination = Nothing

Exit Sub

End Sub

Does anyone know why I am getting values? What do I need to do to make this paste only the formats and formulas?

Copy Pastespecial Loop

Sep 16, 2009

The following macros will:

I'm desperate for a copy paste macros that will:

1) Copy H3:H143 (141 rows) from "Sheet 1" and place this on "Sheet 2" on D4:D144 (141 rows)

2) Copy I:3:I143 (141 rows) from "Sheet 1" and place this on "Sheet 2" on I4:I144 (141 rows)

So, in essence, it will copy every single column across on "Sheet 1", but will paste every 5 columns on "Sheet 2" .

It will then loop 33 times to continually copy and paste across columns.

What I am looking for is once I select the worksheet I want copied, I only want the cell values pasted in the new worksheet. In addition, the worksheet should have no cell formats of any kind. I highlighted a part of the code in red where I think the new code should go, but I am not sure.

PasteSpecial Format CSV From Recordset

Jul 28, 2008

Currently, my code involves making a connection to a db then run queries. Results from the queries goes to recordset & from the recordset copy to specified range in excel worksheet. I am trying to do an automation process.

The problem is that once the record is pasted in excel worksheet, the date column is not being recognised as date therefore excel function (vlookup) is not giving me the results in my report.

When i do a manual PasteSpecail as CSV into the worksheet from the query result, my report gets populated with data which is correct.

i've tried doing a pastespecial format:="CSV" but it doesnt work.

Is there any codes that i can use to copy from the recordset as a CSV format pastespecial??

Or any other ways that can be done?

Copy And PasteSpecial Based On If Statements?

Jun 9, 2013

I have a Workbook which I'm trying to apply the following VBA to (the moment Sheet11 is opened):

If Sheets("Sheet11").Range("B8:B372")=Sheets("Sheet8").Range("F1") - Dates
Sheets("Sheet8").Range("L24").Copy - Numbers
Sheets("Sheet11").Range("B8:B372").PasteSpecial PasteValues.Offset(0,1) (paste into relevant cell in Column C)
Else, 0

I would then like the relevant cell in Column D to be activated. IE: Offset(0,2) so the user can then enter their relevant data - more numbers.

How To Stop PasteSpecial Popup Message

Jul 17, 2013

I have the below code to iterate and copy/paste data.

Application.DisplayAlerts = False
Dim r As Range
Set r = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("POList").Range("A2:A150")


This works fine, but I always get a message saying:

"Data on the Clipboard is not the same size and shape as the selected area. Do you want to paste the data anyway?"

The method completes when I click OK, but I am having to do this hundreds of time as there are a lot of files to be created. Is there a way to stop this message?

How To Force Pastespecial To Ignore Message

May 21, 2014

the code below keeps coming up with the "fields are not the same size do you still want to paste" message when I do the pastespecial command - how can I force it to ignore all messages/force the paste? I am running this via an automation script and would prefer not to have a check to click "ok" each time I do this - as all my other pastes don't have this issue

Set objCB= CreateObject("Mercury.Clipboard")
Set objSheet = oEngine.Sheets.Item("vw_Client_RegulatoryDesignation")

Pastespecial Of Range Class Failed!

Aug 10, 2009

I wrote the following macro to copy some values from a master workbook to a new one. It works superb on my small test sheet but once I try to implement this on my big mastersheet I only get the "Pastespecial of range class failed" on the second pastespecial operation. Why does it work on my small test sheet and not my big master sheet?

Sub ReportGenerator()
Dim NewWorkbookFileName As String
NewWorkbookFileName = ActiveSheet.Name & " report" & " as of " & ThisWorkbook.BuiltinDocumentProperties("Last Save Time")
'Debug.Print NewWorkbookFileName

Run-Time Error 1004 PasteSpecial Method

The macro is timing out on the ActiveSheet.Paste entry...The funny thing is that a number of us can get the macro to work and several of us are getting this error...I am thinking that it is a setting in excel that is causing this...

Pastespecial Method Of Range Class Failed

Oct 3, 2007

I have written some code to move data from one sheet to another. Since the from sheet has formulas, I use the PasteSpecial command. I have used code like this for years, and all the sudden, this starts breaking. And, here is the fun part, I run the code and it works sometimes. I never know when it will fail. It is so random. This is killing me. I have tried to create objRange object and assign them and it works sometime and fails others. Also, I tried adding the line Worksheets("Daily Dashboard"). Range ("C72").Select before the first PasteSpecial as to select the cell first before pasting. Then I get the "Select method of range class failed".
Lastly, I tried copying the code from behind a worksheet into a new module. The code is triggered by a button on the first worksheet. Still fails.

Private Sub cmdGetData_Click()
[Result1].Value = ""
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual

Worksheets("Calculation Sheet").Range("A39:A62").Copy
Worksheets("Daily Dashboard").Range("C72").PasteSpecial xlPasteValues
Worksheets("Calculation Sheet").Range("C39:C62").Copy
Worksheets("Daily Dashboard").Range("E72").PasteSpecial xlPasteValues

[Result1].Value = "Complete"
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
Sheets("Control Panel").Select
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Error :: PasteSpecial Method Of Range Class Failed

May 5, 2008

I found the following for something that I was searching for on the web.

Selection.Columns.PasteSpecial Paste:=8

My question is two fold, 1) What does the '8' mean? 2) Is there someplace that tells me what other numbers for PasteSpecial mean?

This solved a problem that I had when trying to do a PasteSpecial for Column Width. What I had been trying was the following:

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlColumnWidths, Operation:=xlNone, _
SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=False

But I would get the error run time error '1004', PasteSpecial method of Range class failed.

Run-time Error 'PasteSpecial Method Of Worksheet Class Failed'

Nov 26, 2008

I have a pretty simple macro that I recorded and attached to a button. The macro is:
Sub Paste_Data()

ActiveSheet.PasteSpecial Format:="Text", Link:=False, DisplayAsIcon:= _
End Sub

The user opens the file that contains this macro, then runs a report from a website that dumps into an excel file. They copy the data from the Book1 output, then click the button to paste it into the template. If done this way, it works fine.

However, if they run the report and get Book1 THEN open the file containing the macro, they get a run-time error 'PasteSpecial method of Worksheet class failed' on the 'ActiveSheet.PasteSpecial... line

Macro Loop To Extract Specific Values And Min/Max Values From Column/Rows Range

Jun 3, 2009

Hi, I'm very new to writing Excel Macro's and wanted to know if I could do the following. Conceptually, I understand what I need done and think it should be fairly straightforward.

There's 2 main events in this loop (I hope that's the correct terminology):

Input 1) User defines the beginning cell to start the loop. In this case, A2.

Input 2) User defines the range of columns/rows to display. The formula for rows that I've thought of is 4r. So if a user wants 20 rows below cells A2, they simply input 5 for r. The number of columns is a constant 5. So if r=5, then I'd want the range to be A2:E22......
