hi Folks
If I copy some data in Excel, then have to go and do something else...e.g. insert rows etc, it appears as though the copied data is no longer on the clipboard so I have to go through the same steps again...is there any way to keep copied data on the clipboard (as happens in Word)

Thanks

Open the Clipboard Viewer first - click on the little arrow at the bottom-right of Home - Clipboard to open that pane.

You should then be able to copy 24 items.
