Thank you very much hundred times

After going absolutely crazy trying to find a solution, this worked - specifically, the macro for pasting INTO visible only cells. 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!

You can also easily do this without a plugin....
CTRL+C the cells you want to paste
Highlight the filtered/partially hidden range you're pasting to
CTRL+G
Select "Special"
Select "Visible Cells Only" & hit OK
CTRL+V

Thansk for you reply, but it does not work. With your method, it paste all cells including hidden ones with the copied values.

VBA 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....

So is there any update version for this situation?

It is even more flexible and functional if the inner loop is constructed with Do While loop.

i 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.

This works great up to record 1163 of 23,000 and then it stops. Why would it stop?
