Unable copy and paste column or row in Excel 2010

Q: Unable copy and paste column or row in Excel 2010


When I copy a column or a row and insert it, excel inserts it but it vanishes in a split second. When I copy a column and paste it (not insert) it does the job but it is overwritten that I don't want to do.


Thanks in advance

Excel 2010 randomly freezes during copy/paste function. Did not happen with earlier versions. Have to get to Task Mgr and shut down apps & lose any changes. dumprep is often running. Tried starting in safe mode, still happens. Work PC and can't change user. Notice that the clipboard is popping up in bottom right of desktop. Didn't use to with earlier versions. Could the clipboard or macro be causing it?

Hi y'all,
I'm about to start banging my head on the desk! I've asked this question in multiple forums but haven't received any answers.

I'm using the "Marlett check boxes" rather than the checkbox from the form toolbar. So, rather than doing an onclick or anything, I thought it would be easier to just search the column for the letter a, which is what you type when you want a checkbox while in the Marlett font. But the rest of what I want to accomplish may as well be Klingon, I cant make heads or tails of it.

I'm basically doing an auto-ish grocery list with coupons. I've got one workbook, tab A=Master List, tab B=Shopping List, tab C=Coupons. On Master list is a page full of categories/sub-cats (beans/grn bns, cereal/Cheerios, etc.) with a "checkbox" next to it. (A,B="checkbox", item). Shopping list is blank except for the headings & outline. Coupons is running list of all of the coupons we have available.

Ultimately, my goal is to have Shopping List insert items as follows: When I click a checkbox on Master List, it should automatically insert the item sub-category (Cheerios) into the item column on Shopping List. Once an item is listed on the Shopping List, then I'd like it to scan Coupons for the sub-cat (Cheerios); if a coupon is found for that sub-cat, I'd like the info to be copy/pasted into Shopping List. If there is no coupon, my Shopping List would just show Cheerios, but if there is ... Read more

I have been using Microsoft Office Excel (2007) and the copy paste, copy Special paste functions have worked fined. Recently Copy paste does not work every time, the cell that I am copying from does not highlight and when selecting paste, nothing is pasted. When selecting Special Paset, I don't get all the options for copying All, Formulas, Values etc, I only get the option to Paste as Unicode Text or Text.

I tried the copy paste function in Word, this works but does not copy the format, only text is copied. I have restarted the computer, but this does not change anything. These functions have always worked in the past, this has only become an issue after I installed Firefox on my computer. I don't know if the two are related or just a coincident.

Before I re install MS Office, I would like to see if this can be resolved

Any support with this is appreciated.

I have office 2010 pro. I want to know if I can create a Line number column that will incrementally number my rows for me.

I often go thru excel to get a vendor invoice into a format that can be imported into my accounting program and one of the required fields is line number.

The spreadsheet uses row 1 as headers so the invoice data starts on row 2 but would be line 1.

I think I stumbled across it accidentally once but I didn't try to figure out what I did. Sigh!

so if you put the number 1 onto row two - say A2

A3 = 2
highlight the two cells and drag down should auto increment if excel set by default

Im really new to using Access so need some help. This is what im trying todo. I have a form in which the user would imput data either writting the info and/or choosing dropdown options. The idea is once all the info is entered the user will press a button at the bottom labeled "Generate Note", a window will pop up showing all the data in a box with every data section separated with "/" (foward slash). On that popup window it will have 2 buttons, one where the user would be able to copy the information in that box allowing to paste in a MS word doc, note pad or another notating program. (FYInce the Copy button is pressed the popup window will disappear therefore reverting the user back to the section in which the data was entered).

A:Outlook 2010 not listing copy or paste

Hi 53texman and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

Works for me.

In this example, I have selected all of your post above and used Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V to copy and paste.

Here, I have made a selection from my home page and used the right-click copy/paste function.

It could possibly depend on the webpage and what you are trying to copy. Whilst Ctrl + C would appear to work, it doesn't necessarily mean that it has actually copied anything if the source doesn't permit such copying. The fact that you stated that Copy and Paste were grayed out would imply that this is the case. Copy will be grayed out if the source does not permit copying, and likewise Paste will be grayed out if there is nothing stored in the buffer for copying.

What is the site you having this problem with?

I’m trying to work out how I can look at one column in a spreadsheet and display the text in another field but without a load of blank cells in the results column. Let me give you an example.

On Sheet1
In column A are road names
In column B the number of building on that road
In column C the last date and work was doneon the road
In Column D is an =IF formula thatbasically gives a result of 1, 2, 3 or 4.
On another sheet I want four lists

Sheet 2
In column A is a list of road names thathave a value of 1 in Sheet1 column D
In column B is a list of road names thathave a value of 2 in Sheet1 column D
In column C is a list of road names thathave a value of 3 in Sheet1 column D
In column D is a list of road names thathave a value of 4 in Sheet1 column D

I can do this with a simple IF statement in columns A,B,C & D on sheet2 and drag it down but there are a couple of problems with this method.
1, If the value in sheet1 doesn’t match I get a blank cell on sheet2 (as there should be) but this leaves a large number of cells with no value. I need a list in each column A,B,C & D onsheet2 without any blank cells.
2, I’m going to be pasting different data into columns A,B & D on sheet 1 a number of times and the number of rows in will be different each time.

I remember seeing something before thatinvolved using the IF and COUNTIF function in a formula but not sure how.
Any help would be appreciated

Afternoon everyone!

As the title suggests, I have some issues with formatting the x-axis of a column graph (the graph is to show air consumption rate over a period of 30 minutes) in Excel 2010 (the file in question is attached). As you can see in the attached picture, the graph currently has the x-axis formatted such that it starts in the middle of the ticks. Ideally, I am looking for a way to start "0" from the y-axis intercept without shifting the graph as is currently the case when changing the horizontal axis options.

Could you possibly help me sort this out? I need to present it for a university project and I'd like to have the graph presented in this manner. It would also help if I could learn the method so I can do this in future. Thank you for your help in advance!

I want to copy/ paste this formula 5 rows down from where it starts, and then five rows again from that, and again, again, etc.

However, when I simply copy and paste, Excel tries to do the work for me by assuming I want all cell references to also move 5 rows down. Therefore, using above formula, where it references B31 it becomes B36; B30 becomes B35.

What I want is where it references column E to move down the appropriate 5 rows so that the new formula will reference E36 but where it references column B it only moves down one cell - so that B31 becomes B32, etc.

Any suggestions of how to do this without manipulating the formula after pasting every time?


A:Looking for Copy and Paste Excel Shortcut

Welcome to TSG!

No easy way to do it but this might be the easiest.
Copy and paste the formula down 5 rows as many times as needed, then move, not copy, the following cells:
B36-B40 to B31
B41-B45 to B32
B46-B50 to B33
and so on.

2) In Column B are expense categories to match the vendors in column A
Example: Column A cell 1 is "McDonald's", so in Column B cell 1 will be Restaurants
3) I use the Index/Match formula in an Expense worksheet to match the categories of expenses to the vendors based on what is listed in my Category Base Worksheet.
Somehow when I now use copy and paste formulas, the category listing in B1 and paste down the column, B2, B3, etc all show the category in B1 as if B1 were fixed and not free to change.

A:Excel copy and paste macro

Hi, welcome to the forum.
In principle, everything is possible with a macro as long as the code is correct.
You could start by recording a macro yourself and follow the steps that you have explained above.
Once you're finished you stop the macro recording and take a look at the code.
This will show you more or less what it could look like, the only difference being that recoding a macro translates the coordinates to an offset R1C1 or similar instead of select Cells(2,3) (that is row 2 column 3) which is the same as Range("C2")

Try this out and see if you can work it our from there.
One important thing you should remember that you should always mention which version of Excel you're using,just a question of good habbit and complete information.

Just holler if you get stuck

This is my first post and i'm very new to macros so be gentle

I have an excel workbook that i would like to input a name in a cell and i would like the macro to search for that name in another sheet (within the same workbook) and copy and paste specific cells from that data sheet into specific spells on the original sheet.

Basically i want the macro to find the text thats entered into cell D2 of sheet 1, and i want it to look for that text in all of column C in sheet 2. If it finds a match for that text, i then want it to copy the data thats in column B and G of the same row. I then want that data to paste in cells D3 & D4 on sheet 1.

I hope that makes sense. Thank you for your help. i have been trying to find an answer for this for days and cant seem to find exactly what i'm looking for.

Hello guys!
I have a problem, and although I thought the solution was simple, it turned out to be not at al.

I have an excelfile, it contains multiple worksheets, (approx 20)
All these worksheets have a different layout, so the columns have a different size.
When I make a report I have to copy every single worksheet in excel and then have to paste them one by one as a picture in word. This takes a lot of time ofcourse..

So I thought let's make a macro.
I started to paste all the data of the different worksheets into one worksheet and then I could use 1 simple paste and copy into word and voila..
But this didn't worked out because the columns have a different size, so some of the text became unreadible.

Then I made a macro which copies one worksheet and then puts it into a new document in word and saves it, that worked out, but I don't know how to write the code in order to make the macro, after it has copied the first worksheet and pasted it into word, to make it copy the second worksheet and paste it into word and so on for all the worksheets

This is the code to make it copy ONE single worksheet and paste it into word,
but could someone please help me with the code so that it also copies the second worksheet and pastes it into the same word file?
Sub proWord()
Dim varDoc As Object
Set varDoc = CreateObject("Word.Application")
varDoc.Visible = True
Sheets("Rapportgegevens").Range("... Read more

I have an Excel worksheet with data in columns A-D. When scanning down the worksheet I note certain rows that need to be duplicated. I would like to have a macro that would, when activiated, insert a blank row below the identified row and copy the data from the identified row into the newly created blank row.

Currently using Office 2003.

Thanks in advance MBInDe

I have created webapges that I use excel files to copy and paste to my website. For some un known reason I can no longer do this. I use excel 2003 with service pack 3. I was able to copy the file and just paste it into the webpage. I use IE8. I also use Norton Internet Security from Comcast. Norton turned off my Windows firewall and I can't turn it back on. I think this is my problem.

I have an excel sheet that shows what tools are needing calibration for each person in our lab, and when they need to be calibrated.
I have a second sheet (in the same excel file) that displays certain info from the first sheet for our calibration facility.
I would like to create a button next to each row on sheet1 containing owner data, that will be copy only the following data: Manufacturer / Model / Description / Serial number / & Owner (This one is a reference for me and out of the print area), from the first sheet, and to paste them in the appropriate boxes on the second sheet.
I already gave it an attempt, creating buttons, and a Macro, but I must be missing something key to get it to work.
Your mission should you choose to except it, is to help me fix my (Probably Crappy) Macros, and or the buttons which should be clicked to perform this function.

I am very new to VBA and have a scenario that I could use some assistance with.

At work, I have 300 individual excel files, and I need to copy certain cells from each of those files and paste into a summary file. Since it is extremely time-consuming to do this manually, I was wondering if there was a macro that could open the file, refresh pivot tables (I have formulas in the 300 workbooks which are linked to pivot tables in the summary file), copy cells and paste values in the summary file (in the next available row, not to over-write previous data) and save workbook. Then repeat this process for the rest of the files in the folder. I would prefer not to have to write specific file names, as there are 300 of them and growing.

I am using Excel 2007.

I have attached the Summary file and 2 property files as examples. I need to make sure that the formulas in the Qtr1 & Qtr 2 workbooks (column D) are updated with the pivot tables in the Summary file. Then I need to copy cells B2727 from 'WS' worksheet and paste values to the next blank row in the range P2:R4 in the Summary file, and also copy cells B3131 and paste values to the next blank row in the range S2:U4 in the Summary file. Then save property file and close. Then open next file in the folder and repeat.

Please let me know if you need more info. I appreciate any help or feedback!

A:Help with Macro to copy & paste between Excel workbooks

Hi, welcome to the forum.
The Qtr1 & Qtr2 workbooks column D are unclear to me, but the B2727 and B3131 okay.

I put in a vba module with a macro and a funtion the macro Update will ask for confirmation of the Excel sheet and if you answre yes it updates the date.

Nothing with the pivot tables just the two rows into P-R and S-V

test and tell me if this is a beginning of what you need.

My situation is this:

I have 2 instances of Excel 2007 open, one with the worksheet to copy from, the other with the worksheet to copy to. I highlight the desired cell in the source workbook and copy to the destination workbook. Everything works fine for a number of runs. Then, the paste attempts only paste blank cells, without any error message.

You can continue to copy and paste within the worksheet, and in all other programs, but any copy and paste that spans the two instances of Excel will yield blank cells. Once I save the documents, even after a reboot to ensure clipboards are cleared, the problem still exists.

Any idea what could be causing this?
