Pasting Cell Values Matching Destination Formatting?

Mar 31, 2014

I have browsed for two days looking for material on effecting this. The technique quoted most is watch for undolist for paste & auto fill then undo the change and paste the value again with specific formatting needs. This technique can be implemented in a worksheet_change event handler. The problem that I am facing is that the user can copy and past while my VBA is running. Once it is caught inside my own application class object event handler all that undo stack is already cleared. Therefore I have nothing that tells me if the user has entered the value via a paste action. By the time the value is pasted, all that formatting would have been entered. For example, a value that is interpreted by another workbook as DATE will have my destination formatting changed to DATE as well even though it is designed to be TEXT at design time.

So far I have not been able to think of a scheme to deal with this.

My basic intention is to always ensure the destination cell formatting remains as TEXT. If something is already interpreted as DATE after the paste even if I can convert to TEXT the string will appear totally differently. I have to find a way to paste the whole thing as TEXT in order to keep the string the same. The problem is that there is no intrinsic PASTE event in VBA. Without a method to undo that paste I cannot catch this at all.

Copying And Pasting Conditional Formatting With Changing Cell Values

Mar 19, 2013

How to copy and paste conditional formatting with our changing the cell values. My first row of data starts in row 4 and here is what I have in D4

If D4 is less than or equal to AA4, AW4, BS4, CO4 then it will highlight D4

Now I want to copy that format and paste it for all rows in column D. The problem I'm having though is when I paste the formula it doesn't change to match the row I'm on. For example, when I paste it in D5 this is what I get

If D5 is less than or equal to AA4, AW4, BS4, CO4 then it will highlight D5

How do I paste it so that it will update to show AA5, AW5, BS5, and CO5. I want to be able to do this for 500 rows.

Preserve Formatting When Pasting Into A Cell

Feb 24, 2010

I am making template and trying to preserve formatting when users paste into a cell. From my research, I have found that this is impossible with simple format protection, it works to prevent changing formating, but if something is pasted (with normal paste), the format will change.

I have found a few solutions, but can't get them to work correctly

Solution A: Disable normal paste and substitute Paste Special - Values

How will this work with pasting via CTRL + V and the right click menu? I need both to function.

Solution B: Allow users to paste normally, but use a macro to copy formatting from a hidden sheet

I actually found code for this, but I couldn't figure out exactly how to impliment it. The sheet that users will be pasting into is called "Batch Summary" and I was trying to pull formatting from a sheet names "Batch Summary Format", but was getting an error.

Preserve Formatting When Pasting Part Of A Cell

Jun 4, 2013

Is it possible to preserve original text formatting when copying and pasting only part of a cell. Like, for example, a cell may contain ten words one of which is in red and underlined. How do you copy that one word and paste it in another cell so that it remains in red and underlined?

Matching Cell Formats Based On Matching Cell Values

Jan 28, 2010

I have a cell (A1) that contains text.
That text will match a single value in a reference list (i.e. range of cells e.g. Z1:Z26).
When the match occurs (e.g. A1 = Z16), I want the format of the reference cell (fill color, text color) to apply to the cell of interest (A1).
The reference cells are manually formatted.

I know that I could create a long list of conditional format formulas instead of using the reference, but it seems that there must be some way to tell excel: if the cell value contents are equivalent, the formatting should be as well.

Pasting Data From One Sheet To Another With Formatting And Cell References

Feb 11, 2010

I have inherited a monstrous speadsheet on which all data appears on a single sheet rather than being broken up across several sheets in some logical fashion.

One portion of this monster is a set of quite a few form letters, each of which reference various cells elsewhere in the spreadsheet.

I want to move all of these letters, together, to another tabbed sheet as a first step in reorganizing the monster.

Simply copying and pasting the cells or columns doesn't work. It fails in different ways depending on which pasting options I employ.

A very simplified version of my problem appears on the 5 sheets of the attached file, with what I hope is just enough further detail about the difficulty.

By the way, I also tried using the "Insert Copied Cells" option when pasting but since this failed with the exact same results as one of the other options I didn't include the results in the example shreadsheet.

Paste Data, Keep Destination Formatting

Jul 13, 2009

I want to prevent other users when pasting data, to overwrite the formatting of the destination cell.

Since, it is a shared file, i don't want to bother the people explaining use paste special.

I want this to happen automatically.

I don't know VB, and I tried copying what I found in the internet for similar codes, and none have worked. I only copied as they said either in Thisworkbook, and this is all I can do.

I need very easily explained if there is something more than just copying the code in VB view.

Match Destination Formatting On Paste

Aug 16, 2007

Is there a way to set the Paste options in Excel to default to "Match Destination Formatting"? Currently the program defaults to "Keep Source Formatting". It would be extremely helpful for the work I am doing to have the default be "Match Destination Formatting" instead. I thought there might be a way to set this under "Tools, Options, Edit," but there is nothing. I am using Excel 2003

Matching Data And Pasting Result

Nov 11, 2008

i have data on the left; a Ref number.. A0, A1, A2 etc etc and each of these has an associated 'output'

What i need to do is have the ability to input random numbers (like in column E) then hit the macro and it put in the ref code next to it

so far i have the following which only goes as far as shown above..
it errors and doesn't complete the list

Sub find_paste()
Dim output As Variant
For counter = 5 To 10
Set output = Range("E" & counter)
With Worksheets("data")
Selection.find(What:=output, After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlValues, _
LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False _
, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
ActiveCell.Offset(rowoffset:=0, columnoffset:=-1).Copy
ActiveCell.Offset(rowoffset:=0, columnoffset:=1).PasteSpecial
End With
Next counter

End Sub

Pasting Values Below Target Cell

Dec 27, 2011

* I want to copy a range that starts at 1 cell immediately to the right of AddressStart and extends for 100 cells wide
* I want to paste 10 rows of this information
* AddressStart will be a variable address such as B2, B10, B1000

Here is my current code (which fails on copy/paste):

For NewRows = 1 To 10
WSReqs.Range(AddressStart).Offset(NewRows, 0).EntireRow.Insert
WSReqs.Range(AddressStart, Cells(0, 100)).Offset(0, 1).Copy Destination:=WSReqs.Range(AddressStart, Cells(0, 100)).Offset(NewRows, 0)
Next NewRows

1) How do I set the relative reference to set the size of width of the row to be pasted?
2) Is it possible to refer to the end of the row (far right)

Conditional Formatting - Change Value Font Color In Cell Based On Matching Text?

Via conditional formatting, I am searching to change the color of a specific word in a cell (not the color of everything in the cell, but only that specific word - and the word repeats in the cell). A function such as =isnumber(search("NOK";A1)) colors all the cell values, which I do not want to do. How i can perform this task?

Pasting Text Without Retaining The Formatting

Nov 20, 2009

I am in a situation where I have to copy-n-paste text from a webpage into Excel. When I do this, the pasted text keeps the formatting of the webpage. The font is the webpage font. The background color is the background color of the webpage. Etc.

I know that I can paste just the text itself, without any of the formatting, by right-clicking, selecting "Paste Special...", and then selecting "Text" instead of "HTML". I am wondering if there is an option somewhere that will do this automatically when I hit CTRL-V instead of requiring me to pull up the Paste Special dialog box.

Fill Table Based On Matching Cell Values & Export

The 'CMD_BUTTON' tab represents how I plan to use a command button " IMPORT DATA" to import the data into this workbook, then use "RUN PROJECT-PO-REPORT" to call the MACRO to achieve my objective,as stated below. (Originally,this workbook was about 8mb, so to get this under the size for attachment, I just copied the bare minimum of what I believe would be needed to assist me, and so there's no buttons or macros or dynamic name ranges, as there will be...)

How To Copy Page Formatting When Pasting Into New Workbook

Dec 28, 2011

I've been trying to code a macro that will select a worksheet (that has formulas) to copy just the values into a new workbook. I want the page setup data to also be included. It seems that if a select the workbook and do a copy, it includes the formulas. If I select the cells, then do a paste/special values into the new workbook, the page setup is the default one. Each worksheet that I want to copy/paste has different page setup values and I'd like to be able to carry over the page setup. Otherwise, I have to have code to do all the page setup in the macro. There are over 20 worksheets and it's slow.

This code does the copy/paste special but no worksheet page setup is included

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _
"U:My DocumentsLearning VBA filesTestNewWorkbook.xls"
Windows("ProjectFilesChapter07 test.xls").Activate

Changing Cell Destination

Jun 22, 2006

How do I change the destination Cell in a workbook from data entered in a macro?

As an example If I press the command button the first time the Textbox1.value is sent to Cells(11, 5).
The next time I press the Same command button the data Textbox1.value is sent to Cells (12, 5)

Mainly is the rows I want to change not the coloums!

Struggled with this for weeks now which I am sure is a simple issue to code.

I am struggling to make people understand the problem though so I hope this works!

Edit A Source Value From A Destination Cell

Jul 29, 2008

I'm positive that this is a dumb question that's been answered elsewhere, so pardon my n00bness -- this is a one-time project for a non-programmer.

My manager needs to edit values in a spreadsheet. This person is non-technical and put off by spreadsheets, so I want to create a custom view of the data to show only the editable data (with pretty colors and fonts, etc.)

I have a source worksheet and a display worksheet. I need the display worksheet to show the values in the source worksheet, and I need changes in the display sheet to change the referenced data in the source sheet. For example, if cell Source:A1 = "thingamabob", then cell Display:A1 = "thingamabob". If user changes cell Display:A1 to "hoodgie", then cell Source:A1 changes to "hoodgie".

Essentially, the user has to be able to edit the source cell via the display cell.

Is that possible?

Again, please excuse my ignorance -- for all I know, this may be an automated function in Excel... but I've been trying to figure it out for two hours and so I thought I'd ask you nice people.

Click To Copy Cell Within Range To Destination Cell?

Oct 18, 2013

My goal would be to click on a cell within a range of cells (in a column) and have the value copied to a specified destination cell. There would be a few different columns with source cells and two destination cells. Each column would to copy to a specific cell. My ojective is basically to deal with different processing times (days, weeks, months).

Here's a little visual, clicking on C4 for example would copy the value "5" to cell B2. Clicking on D4 would copy "12" to A2.


Processing time X (weeks)
Processing time Y (in days)
Processing time Z (in weeks)

How To Stop Linked Cell Destination From Changing

Oct 30, 2013

This is the current layout I have:

Sheet 1: A1:B20, is linked to Sheet 2: A1:B20.

I need to copy and paste data from the internet into Sheet 2, but it's not in the correct order, so I must swap column A and column B in Sheet 2 only. The problem with this is that when I swap them, the linked cells swap as well, which destroys my data on Sheet 1 columns C-Z.

Is there a way that I can keep the cells on Sheet 1 completely static, so that it only reads the data I put into the corresponding cell on Sheet 2?

Or maybe, is there a way I can just swap the cell information in Sheet 2 without messing around with the formatting? Just a complete swap of A1>B1 and B1>A1?
