How to copy and paste into Excel
Unlike any other spreadsheet program, Excel offers a huge variety of options for copying/pasting data.
You can paste anything – formulas, formatting, values, transposed values, and whatnot🖌
And the best part is that you can access a single option from multiple places, offering extra ease of use. So how do you copy and paste values in Excel? Let’s see below
Generally, there are three 3️⃣ ways in which you can copy/paste your data once you select a cell.
1. The clipboard group
The Clipboard section contains all the functions you need to copy and paste values in Excel. It sits in the Home tab of the ribbon.
You can use the Scissors option to cut data and the Two Sheets option to copy the data✂
The Clipboard icon is the paste button that holds all the copied data. The Paint Brush icon below is known as the Format Painter, which lets you copy the formatting🖌
And the options don’t just end here – Click on the arrow in the bottom right corner to view more copy/paste options.
2. The right-click menu
You can access the context menu by right-clicking the cell you want to copy. The dropdown list will show you a bunch of options.
Select Copy to make a copy of the selected cell in the clipboard. Once you copy a cell, a continuously moving border will enclose it.
