Have you ever wanted to paste just one attribute of a cell or range into another cell or range? Suppose you want to save the result of a formula stored in cell A1 in another cell. Or maybe you just want to copy the format (font, alignment, etc.) of one cell to another? Or you need to quickly switch data from columns to rows?
This is called transposing your data.
These are only some of the functions of the Paste Special options. You can also use it to perform simple operations like arithmetic between the copied data and the data already present in the destination cell.
Tip: In Word, we can copy text and paste it as an image right back into Word. In Excel, we cannot. But you can copy from Excel and paste as an image to Word, and then paste the image back into Excel.
