How to paste all except formulas in Excel?
If you want to paste cell values with all formatting from a range of cells except formulas in Excel, this article will help you. This article provides you with two methods of pasting all except formulas in Excel.
Supposing you want to copy the data in column C (see screenshot below) and paste to other cells, and you would like the cell values and formats to be reserved but formulas deleted after pasting. Please do as follows to achieve it.
1. Press Alt + F11 keys simultaneously to open the Microsoft Visual Basic Application window.
2. In the Microsoft Visual Basic Application window, click Insert > Module.
3. Then copy and paste the below VBA code into the Module window.
VBA: paste all except formulas
Sub PasteSP() With Application.Selection .PasteSpecial XlPasteType.xlPasteValues .PasteSpecial XlPasteType.xlPasteComments .PasteSpecial XlPasteType.xlPasteFormats End With Application.CutCopyMode = False End Sub
4. Shift back to the worksheet, select the range you want to copy all except formulas and press the Ctrl + C keys to copy them, then click to select a blank cell where you want to put the result. See screenshot:
5. Go to the Microsoft Visual Basic Application window again, and press the F5 key to run the code.
You can see the formulas are removed from the pasted data, but other formatting has been kept.
Note: comments will be pasted together with values and formats if there are comments existing in selected cells.
