Ctrl+V is already mapped to paste
rspahitz

Ctrl+C is still available.
And in Excel, you can go to the Home tab, Clipboard group (first box) and click on the clipboard picture to paste.
Were you looking for something else?

You do realize that you can record and playback this behavior for these methods in Excel?

in response to all the suggestions, as u age, u get lazier!  While all the above suggestions are doable, but I am thinking of a lazy man's approach, that is after copying using Control + C, when I am in another cell, just to hit a Function key, to paste (that was copied) to the new cell.

in response to rspahitz, I think u got my idea.
I would like F-key paste function to be available to all workbooks.  When I hit a Control + C, it should be copied to the F key.   And when I move to any cell, and hit the F key, it should paste the contents.  When I do another new copy command, the new copy should replace the old one in the F key.  
BUT not to apply outside of Excel, as I use so many other softwares, it is not worth my effort to research each and every software whether there will be a conflict.
So it will only be limited to all workbooks in Excel 2007 - any F key which is not in use.
In response to matthewspatrick, your suggestion works, however, it will only do the job,  for one cell.  I would like this function  to repeat for multiple cells when I move to another cell.
thank u everyone.
