Pasting Part Of Your Worksheet To Another Document

If you ever need to include a small part of your worksheet in an email, a Word document, or a PowerPoint presentation, a simple solution is to paste it as a picture.

  1. Select the cells you want to copy.
  2. Hold down the SHIFT key and select Edit, 'Copy Picture'. (Note, the Copy Picture menu item is only available if you hold down the SHIFT key).
  3. In the Copy Picture dialog box select either 'As shown on screen' or 'As shown when printed'. Try each of these to see which you prefer. If you choose 'As shown on screen', the gridlines will be shown in the picture if they are visible in your worksheet. If you choose 'As shown when printed' the gridlines will not be visible in the picture.
  4. For the Format option choose Picture.
  5. Click OK
  6. Switch to the document where you want to paste the picture.
  7. Press CTRL+V (i.e. keyboard shortcut for Paste) or choose the Paste option from the menu or toolbar for that program.
