Paste It Here and Here and Here?

Paste It Here and Here and Here?

When you’re working in MS Excel, do you sometimes find yourself needing to paste the same information into many non-adjacent cells?

Now, I’m sure many of you know you can highlight multiple cells, enter something into one of them and then use Ctrl + Enter to put the same information simultaneously into all of the highlighted cells. Right?

That’s a great trick, but what if the information is a long formula that’s already typed out somewhere else?

You could use the Ctrl + Enter trick, but that would require you to retype your formula.

You could try to copy and paste into every single cell that needs the information, but what if it’s a lot of cells? I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to do that much pasting!

So, now what?

The answer is found between the copy and the paste. Literally!

The next time you need the same thing pasted into many locations, give this a try:

At this point, you’re ready to paste. Well, sort of!

Voila!

All of the cells are filled with only one paste completed. You have to love the efficiency of this one!
