Excel 2013

In 2010 when I copy a series of cells that contain numbers in one worksheet, and then Paste (using Ctrl+V or right mouse click and Paste) the number values are pasted into the second worksheet.

In 2013 when I copy a series of cells that contain numbers in one worksheet and then Paste (using Ctrl+V or right mouse click and Paste) the cells in the second worksheet are filled with zeroes.  To paste the actual numbers I have to right click and choose Paste Values.

Is there a setting in the Options that will make 2013 work like 2010, or was that a change made by MS and we have to live with it.
