    Special Paste (XP SR!)

    I would like to do a Paste Special of a graph and Excel will not allow me. Do I need to set something first? Thanks.

    Can you provide some details of how and where you are copying the graph, and how and where you are trying to paste it?

    I am right clicking the mouse and then selecting Copy. I want to copy the graph into another work sheet and would like to select Paste Special, which is not available.

    That's by design, I think. You can Paste Special the chart in Word or PowerPoint, but it wouldn't make much sense in another Excel worksheet. What do you want to accomplish?

    Ok, thanks. I wanted to use the drawing tool on the spreadsheet. Also, I wanted to view a number of graphs simultaneously.

    If you hold shift button before going to menu, you can "copy picture".

    Then you will get the paste special - "picture" option.

    You can copy/paste a chart normally, or you can copy it as a picture, by holding the Shift key down when selecting the Edit menu: the Copy item will change to Copy Picture..., and afterwards, the Paste item will change to Paste Picture.
