Hour 8. Using Excel 2003 > Reviewing Cut, Copy, and Paste in Excel

Reviewing Cut, Copy, and Paste in Excel

If you have mastered the Copy, Cut, and Paste commands in Word, those commands in Excel will be a breeze for you. As with Word and the other Office products, Excel uses the Office Clipboard to hold data that you are copying, cutting, and pasting from within or between worksheets. Alternatively, if you open two workbooks at the same time and display both on your screen (by selecting Window, Arrange), you can easily copy, cut, and paste between the two workbooks by dragging content from one worksheet to the other.

To copy data from one location to another, select the cell or cells you want to copy and then click the Copy toolbar button (or press Ctrl+C) to copy the worksheet contents to your Clipboard. The contents stay in the original location because you elected to copy and not cut the cells. To paste the Clipboard contents to another location, click the cell to indicate the upper-left corner of the target range. Then, click the Paste toolbar button (or press Ctrl+V). Excel overwrites the target cells with the pasted contents, so be sure of the paste target when you paste Clipboard data.
