Excel 16 - Ctrl-V does not hold for multiple pastes

Excel 16 - Ctrl-V does not hold for multiple pastes

Excel 16 - Ctrl-V does not hold for multiple pastes

(OP)
Hi,

I find lately that Ctrl-V (Paste) sometimes does not hold for multiple pastes (repeating Ctrl-V without a Copy each time).

Sometimes it works perfectly, then sometimes I have to do a Ctrl-C (Copy) for each paste.

Any similar experiences, or even better, any known solutions!

Thanks in anticipation.

RE: Excel 16 - Ctrl-V does not hold for multiple pastes

Check your focus - is the sheet greyed out because it is waiting to complete an operation or something else has been selected?

Hi xwb,

Thanks for your reply.

The focus seems ok, I copy and then want to do several repeated pastes down a page, and the data is lost after the first paste.

To do what I want I have to repeatedly copy and paste.

Other times I works fine!

RE: Excel 16 - Ctrl-V does not hold for multiple pastes

Any automatic macros in the file or add-in if Ctrl+V works only once?

When it does not work, have you tried this functionality in - let's say - a Notepad?

There is a great need for a sarcasm font.

RE: Excel 16 - Ctrl-V does not hold for multiple pastes

This has just happened to me.

I copied a number of cells and then repeatedly pasted them into other areas of the same spreadsheet. It then stopped working and I had to repeat the copy.

What caused it was that after the last paste before it stopped working I had deleted a cell.

Hope this helps.
