With the filter in place, start in the first visible cell of the column where you want the copy with a formula:

=B2   assuming data coming from column B and first row is row 2

Then highlight down to the bottom of the destination column and use Ctrl + D to fill down; this will only populate in the visible cells.

Now remove the filter and highlight the column. Copy and paste values to break the links.

Thanks

Hi,

here is a simple way to do this:

1. selectyour desired range
2. Hold control button and select column and area you wan to paste
3. While still holding control button, Press "R".

Hope this helps.

@Yamaafg - well done, that does it; as doing Ctrl + D only affects the visible cells I should have realised that Ctrl + R would do the same.
