    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
    Select "Special"
    Select "Visible Cells Only" & hit OK

      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....

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