Note that I was copying only from unfiltered cells. However, the people complaining that it doesn't do both (which I'm not sure is true) should be quiet because it's pretty easy to copy FROM only visible/filtered cells into an unfiltered area. You don't need a macro for that (and if you're trying to do both, just do the copying of filtered cells in Excel first, then use this macro). Again, what Excel is fully unable to do on its own without a macro is to paste to visible cells only. This macro saved my bum. Thanks!

CTRL+C the cells you want to paste
Highlight the filtered/partially hidden range you're pasting to
Select "Visible Cells Only" & hit OK
To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 2 years agoVBA method did not work! It copied the invisible cells into the visible cells. Now, I realize that the title doesn't say "How to paste values FROM VISIBLE/FILTERED CELLS to visible/filtered cells only in Excel?" but if my workbook is filtered, it's highly possible that this is what is needed. If this is what you want - copy from one section to another (or to simply paste values from certain cells right back to the same cells, so to remove the fomulas) you first need to copy/paste values to an unfiltered workbook/worksheet. THEN you can use the macro...or at least I hope you can. I didn't save my data and UNDO does not work....

To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 2 years agoi am currently developing a macro. In that i need to do filter for a particular column for Eg: Column D and need to paste some values Eg: Valid in column B.
only i need to paste the value for the filtered cells.
And also i want to know the coding for multiple filters at a time. EG: filtering in one column and checking the value and again do filter in another column without making false for the previous filter.
help me on this.

To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 3 years agoYou rock! I've had this issue multiple times in the past but it became a back-breaker for the recent project. And you've helped me to fix it beautifully. THANK YOU!

To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 4 years agoI am curious if an Excel update has caused instability. I previously was able to use the VBA code successfully, but now it is causing the copied area to be pasted nonstop beyond the selected range. Results in Excel hanging.
