Paste on filtered data


Once I filter a list, for example, in Region column I filter a list for North entries only (there are South, East, and West also). Then after the filtered list is obtained, I want to be able to paste some values in a column only against North (at present North is filtered). How can I achieve this?

you just select the cells in column next to Region column and paste the values to selected cells.

But some time back, I saw it copied on hidden rows also. Why would that happen?

Haris DulicIT ArchitectCommented:
If you select more cells and just paste in without selecting destination it will paste it starting from the selected cell and in that case if there are some hidden rows it will paste to those rows as well.
