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:

Very useful!

Cannot insert columns in excel spreadsheet. Comes up with error cannot shift object off sheet

This error message occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • The option Nothing (hide objects) is selected in the Display options for this workbook section in the Excel Options dialog box.
  • You create an object, such as a cell comment, in any cell in a column.
  • You try to hide the column to the left of the column that contains the object, the column that contains the object, or all the columns to the right side of the column that contains the object. Or, in some cases, you try to insert a row or column in the worksheet.
There are two ways to fix this problem.
Method 1:  Temporarily toggle the option from "Nothing (hide objects)" to All In Excel 2007, temporarily toggle the option from Nothing (hide objects) to All, and then insert the rows or columns as needed. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. In the upper-left corner of the Excel window, click the Microsoft Office button.
  2. At the bottom of the menu, click Excel Options.
  3. Click Advanced from list of options on the left.
  4. Scroll down to the Display options for this workbook section, and then click All under For objects, show:, and then click OK.
Notes To use the keyboard shortcut to toggle this selection, press CTRL+6. 
If these steps do not let you hide rows or columns or insert rows or columns in Excel 2007, try the steps in method 2.
Method 2: Change the position property of the object to Move and size with cells To work around this issue, Excel 2003, Excel 2002, and Excel 2000, change the position property of the object to Move and size with cells. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. If the object is a cell comment, select the cell that contains the comment, right-click the cell, and then click Show Comment or Show/Hide Comments. Note This makes the comment visible.
  2. Move the pointer to the edge of the object until the pointer changes into a white arrow with four small black arrows on the pointer. Then, click the object to select it.
  3. In Excel 2003 and earlier version of Excel, click <object name> on the Format menu. Note In this menu command, <object name> is the name of the object, such as "Comment" or "AutoShape."  In Excel 2007, click Format <object name>.
  4. In the Format dialog box, click the Properties tab.
  5. Click Move and size with cells, and then click OK.
  6. If you want to hide the cell comment again, right-click the cell that contains the comment, and then click Hide Comment.
  7. Follow these steps for each object in the affected column as described in the "Cause" section. When you hide the columns, you do not receive the error message.
