How to copy data from/into multiple worksheets in Excel?
Normally, it is not difficult to copy and paste data in Excel. However, it can be time-consuming when you need to copy a range of data and paste it into multiple worksheets. In this tutorial, I will teach you how to get the job done easily, and teach you how to batch copy data from multiple worksheets at once.
- Copy and paste data into the same range of multiple worksheets
- Copy same cell from multiple worksheets
- Copy all data from multiple sheets to single sheet
We can copy a range of data and paste to multiple worksheets with the Fill > Across Worksheets feature in Excel. Please do as follows:
1. Select the range in current worksheet you will copy and paste into other worksheets.
2. Go to the Sheet Tab bar and select multiple worksheets (including the current worksheet) you will paste the data into. See screenshot:
Note: By holding the Ctrl key, you can select multiple nonadjacent worksheets by clicking each worksheet one by one; By holding the Shift key, you can select multiple adjacent worksheets by clicking the first worksheet and the last one.
3. Click Home > Fill > Across Worksheets. See screenshot:
4. In the opening Fill Across Worksheets dialog box, please check one option based on your need, and click the OK button.
In our case, we check the All option and click the OK button. See screenshot:
