Hi,

I do invoices in excel.

Is there any way to have a bit of excel remember snippets of commonly used text

for example a bare metal install invoice ........

Copy data
restored windows
installed updates
Restored data

I dont want to have to type this every time.

Aside from having a notepad of these is there a way to call this into excel?
Is there an inbuilt notepad in excel for the likes of this?

Thanks,

You could easily have a hidden sheet where the snippets would reside. Put each one in a single cell and use the Name Manager to give them names that you can use. Then you could do something like

Range("A1").Value = Range("BareMetal").Value ' "BareMetal" is the named range.

Actually

Range("A1").Value = Sheets("MyHiddenSheetName").Range("BareMetal").Value

Or, if this is for your personal use, forget about hiding the sheet and the named ranges, just copy and paste the values from the formerly hidden sheet.
