Cells copies post as bitmap

Sometimes when I paste a copied cell it pastes the whole sheet rather than just the contents of the cell. If I choose paste special it comes up with the bitmap. I don't know what I am doing wrong

I think you are referring to 2003 onwards when this problem appears - in which case at the bottom right hand corner of any pasted item is a list of options and buttons which will refer to the table. cells or image being pasted.


Click on the table option to retain your formatting.

Copy a Group of Cells in Excel 2007 to the Clipboard as an Image


If you want to share a small part of your Excel worksheet but don't want to send an Excel file, you can copy part of the worksheet to the clipboard as a picture instead, which can be pasted into any application that supports images, such as your favorite image editor.

The command in Excel 2007 to do this is oddly located on the Paste menu in the Ribbon. From the Home tab, click on the drop-down menu under the Paste button, and select As Picture \ Copy as Picture.


Now you will get a dialog asking you how you want to copy the picture. If you want to paste the picture into any application, you'll need to select "As shown on screen", and then "Bitmap".


Now your cell data should be on the clipboard, ready to paste into any application that allows you to paste in a bitmap. Here's an example of a bitmap I pasted into the editor I use for writing articles here:

I want to copy an Excel chart as a Image onto a PowerPoint Slide (Office 2007). What is the sequence of APIs to apply?


Copy worksheet data to a PowerPoint presentation
  1. In Excel, select the worksheet data that you want to copy to a PowerPoint presentation.
  2. On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click Copy za006044679.gif.

za010165428.gif

Keyboard shortcut You can also press CTRL+C.

  1. Click in the PowerPoint presentation where you want to paste the copied worksheet data.
  2. On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click Paste.

Keyboard shortcut You can also press CTRL+V.

  1. Click Paste Options za006043532.gif next to the data, and then do one of the following:
    • To use the original format of the copied data, click Keep Source Formatting.
    • To use the document theme that is applied to the PowerPoint presentation, click Use Destination Theme.
    • To paste table data that you copied as text, click Keep Text Only.

Notes

  • If you don't see the Paste Options button, you may have to turn it on. Click the Microsoft Office Button za010077102.gif, and then click PowerPoint Options. In the Advanced category, under Cut, Copy, and Paste, select the Show Paste Options buttons check box.
  • If you paste the data into a PowerPoint table, the Paste Options button is not displayed.
Tips
  • To paste the data in another format (such as a worksheet object, HTML format, bitmap, picture, or to text format) or to paste a link to the source data in Excel, on the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click the arrow on the Paste button, and then click Paste Special. In the As list, click the format that you want to use.
    • If you want to edit the entire worksheet later, click Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet Object. Clicking Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet Object provides access to the entire worksheet in the presentation, including data that you may want to keep private. To automatically update the table in the presentation when changes are made to the source data in Excel, click Paste link. Both of these options also preserve the Excel formatting, even when the formatting features that are used are not supported in PowerPoint. If you saved the source workbook before you copied the data, you can also click Attach Hyperlink to insert a hyperlink in your presentation that directs you to the source data in Excel.
    • To paste the content as an Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) (OLE: A program-integration technology that you can use to share information between programs. All Office programs support OLE, so you can share information through linked and embedded objects.) PowerPoint application icon (rather than pasting the actual content), click Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet Object, and then select the Display as icon check box. You can click the icon to open the application and then view the content.
    • If you want to use HTML to copy the data to PowerPoint into a PowerPoint table, click HTML format.
    • To paste a static picture, click Device Independent Bitmap or Bitmap, or to paste a picture that can be ungrouped, click Picture (Enhanced Metafile) or Picture (Windows Metafile).
    • To paste the data as formatted or unformatted text, click Formatted Text (RTF) or Unformatted Text.
  • To paste the data as a hyperlink that directs you to the source data in Excel, click the arrow on the Paste button, and then click Paste As Hyperlink. If the workbook that contains the source data has not been saved yet, this option is unavailable.
  • If you want the range of data that you paste as a Microsoft Excel Worksheet Object into a PowerPoint presentation to expand when the corresponding data expands on the Excel worksheet, you can define a name (name: A word or string of characters that represents a cell, range of cells, formula, or constant value. Use easy-to-understand names, such as Products, to refer to hard to understand ranges, such as Sales!C20:C30.) for the range of data in Excel before you copy the data. You can then paste a link to the named range by using the Paste Special command. On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click the arrow on the Paste button, click Paste Special, and then click Paste link. This works only when you copy data that is not in table format in Excel.

How to copy 395.6 and paste only 396 and copy 395.4 and paste 395


two options - 1st format the cells where you will paste (e.g. highlight one column - "the paste to column") by right clicking and choosing format cells, then number and set number of decimal places to 0 - then when pasting instead of usual paste (right-click>>paste or Cmd-V) choose Paste Special (right-click>>Paste Special) then choose Values so you don't override the format with the paste

option two - similar but just wait until you've pasted and format the pasted cells as Number>>0 decimal places.

Cheers,

Copy formulas


It should work if you just copy and paste it. Or select the range of your working area and right click in destination cell and choose paste special. When new window pop up, just choose Formula.

It should work usually, but by any chance you've encountered the problem regarding this. Just let me know...i'll try to help you...

You can refer to cells that are on other worksheets by perpending the name of the worksheet followed by an exclamation point (!) to the cell reference. In the following example, the AVERAGE worksheet function calculates the average value for the range C1:C10 on the worksheet named Marketing in the same workbook.

default.aspx?assetid=za010939481033 Refers to the worksheet named Marketing default.aspx?assetid=za010939491033 Refers to the range of cells between C1 and C10, inclusively
  1. Click the cell in which you want to enter the formula.
  2. In the formula bar (formula bar: A bar at the top of the Excel window that you use to enter or edit values or formulas in cells or charts. Displays the constant value or formula stored in the active cell.) default.aspx?assetid=za060515351033, type = (equal sign).
  3. Click the tab for the worksheet to be referenced.
  4. Select the cell or range of cells to be referenced.

Formula


You can copy any selected cell(s), and then in the sheet you want a link in, select 'Paste Special' from the Edit menu, and then choose 'Paste Link.' I have assumed that you're working in Excel, since you mentioned sheets. The pasted link will update any time you open the second sheet with the links in it.
