Advanced Range Copying

The copying techniques we've looked at so far normally copy the entire contents of each cell in the range: the value or formula, the formatting, and any attached cell comments. If you like, you can tell Excel to copy only some of these attributes, you can transpose rows and columns, or you can combine the source and destination ranges arithmetically. All this is possible with Excel's Paste Special command. These techniques are outlined in the next three sections.

Copying Selected Cell Attributes

When rearranging a worksheet, you can save time by combining cell attributes. For example, if you need to copy several formulas to a range but you don't want to disturb the existing formatting, you can tell Excel to copy only the formulas.
