Excel 2007 - Can I Use "Paste Special" to paste Values AND Formatting?
Posted on 2012-03-22
I have constructed a spreadsheet with VLOOKUP formulas, as well as some simple SUM formulas. I have also used some basic formatting (cell fill colors, bold fonts, some merged cells, etc.) to help in making reading certain cells/columns easier to identify quickly.
Each week, I need to copy the entered and calculated information, paste the data into it's own worksheet (data only - no formulas) and then start over with the original template and it's formulas with the next week's data.
Of course, I know how to paste values only, but then I am required to make a number of manual steps with the pasted data (centering of text in some columns, adjusting the date column to the correct format, etc.) to keep the data easily readable.
With this spreadsheet retaining merged cells isn't that important but retaining the visual/style formatting is.
Is there a way to "Paste Special" that will paste the cell Values AND Formatting, retaining all the shading, bold fonts, date style, merged cells, merged cells, etc?
Thanks to all.
