9 Ways To Copy And Paste As Values In Excel

Copying and pasting is a very frequently performed action when working on a computer. This is also true in Excel.

It’s so common that almost everyone knows the keyboard shortcuts to copy Ctrl + C and to paste Ctrl + V.

This can be frustrating as sometimes you’ll only want the values to copy and not any of the other stuff in the cells.

In this post, you’ll learn 8 ways to copy and paste only the values from your Excel data.

Example Data

Cell formatting including font colour, fill colour, number formatting and borders.


SUM formula.

A data validation dropdown list.

Paste Special Keyboard Shortcut

If you want to copy and paste anything other than an exact copy, then you’re going to need to become familiar with paste special.

My favourite method to use this is with a keyboard shortcut.

Copy the data you want to paste as values into your clipboard.

Choose a new location in your workbook to paste the values into.

Press Ctrl + Alt + V on your keyboard to open up the Paste Special menu.

Select Values from the Paste option or press V on your keyboard.

Press the OK button.

Paste Special Legacy Keyboard Shortcut

This keyboard shortcut is a legacy shortcut from before the Excel ribbon command existed and it’s still usable.

Once the Paste Special menu is open you can then press V for Values.

Paste Special from the Home Tab

If you’re not a keyboard person and prefer using the mouse, then you can access the Paste Values command from the ribbon commands.

Select and copy the data you want to paste into your clipboard.

Select the cell you want to copy the values into.

Go to the Home tab.

Select the Values clipboard icon from the paste options.

Paste Values with Hotkey Shortcuts

Since the paste values command is in the ribbon, that also means you can access it with the Alt hotkeys.

Notice when you press the Alt key, the ribbon lights up with all the accelerator keys available.

Paste Values with Quick Access Toolbar Command

If it’s a command you use quite frequently, then why not put it in the quick access toolbar?

Depending where in the quick access toolbar you place it, it will also get it’s own easy to use Alt hotkey shortcut too.

Check out this post for details on how to add commands to the quick access toolbar, or this post on other interesting commands you can add to the quick access toolbar.

Select All Commands from the drop down list.

Locate and select Paste Values from the options. You can press P on your keyboard to quickly navigate to commands starting with P.

Press the Add button.

Use the Up and Down arrows to change the ordering of commands in your toolbar.

Press the OK button.

If you place it in the 4th position like in this Example, then you can you Alt + 4 to access it with a keyboard shortcut.

Paste Values Mouse Trick

Select the range of cells to copy.

Hover the mouse over the active range border until the cursor turns into a four directional arrow.

Select Copy Here as Values Only from the menu.

This is such a neat way, and there are a few other options in this hidden menu that are worth exploring.

Paste Values with Paste Options

There’s another sneaky method to paste values.

Paste Values and Formulas with Text to Columns

I don’t really recommend using this method, but I’m going add it just for fun.

A few caveats with this method.

You can only copy and paste one column of data.

It will keep any formulas.

If that’s exactly what you’re looking for, then this method might be of interest.

Select a single column of data ➜ go to the Data tab ➜ select the Text to Column command.

You can also select Fixed width as we won’t be using the text to column functionality it doesn’t really matter.

Paste Values with Advanced Filters

This one is another not-quite paste values option and is listed for fun as well.

With your data selected go to the Data tab then select the Advanced command in the Sort and Filter section.

Select Copy to another location.

Leave the Criteria range empty.

Select a location to place the copied data.

Press the OK button.

You can then remove the cell formatting that’s left by going to the Home tab ➜ Clear ➜ and selecting the Clear Formats option.


Wow! That’s a lot of different ways to paste data as values in Excel.

It’s understandable there are so many options given it’s an essential action to avoid carrying over unwanted formatting.

You’re eventually going to need to do this and there are quite a few ways to get this done.

What’s your favourite way? Did I miss any methods you use?

5 Keyboard Shortcuts To Paste Values In Excel

Bottom line: Learn 5 different ways to copy and paste values to remove all formulas and formatting.

Skill level: Beginner

Video Tutorial What is Paste Values?

Copying and pasting values is probably one of the most common tasks we do in Excel.

Paste Values will paste the values ONLY of the copied range WITHOUT formulas and formatting. This allows us to extract the numbers or text from cells.

There are a TON of reasons to paste values.

One common use is for scenario analysis where we want to “freeze” numbers that are results of formulas and place them in some blank cells.

Another common use is when we want to paste numbers or text into a range that already contains formatting. Pasting values will not change any existing formatting that is applied to the cell/range.

In the image above, the Scenario 1 column already contained both cell formatting (colors) and number formatting. When we paste values, any existing formatting in the paste range will NOT change.

In the first example above, the blank cells have the default General format, and that is why there is no number formatting applied when we paste values.

The Paste Special Menu

Paste Values is one of the many pasting options on the Paste Special menu.

The Paste Special… button on those menus opens the full Paste Special Menu.

Keyboard Shortcuts for Paste Values

There are keyboard shortcuts for all of the Paste Special commands. As I mentioned before, the most common we use is Paste Values.

In the video above I share 5 keyboard shortcuts (plus a bonus) to paste values. Here is a list of the shortcuts.

Alt, E, S, V, Enter (Mac: Ctrl+Cmd+V)

Alt, H, V, V

Menu Key + V

Custom Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) Button: Alt+1

Ctrl+V, Ctrl, V

Custom shortcut with The Paste Buddy Add-in.

In the video I also mention my article on the best keyboards for Excel keyboard shortcuts.

Excel Paste Special makes the pasting operation smoother by letting you choose which formatting (source or destination) to keep or by stripping all formatting and just pasting the values or formulas.

What is Paste Special in Excel?

In situations where a standard copy / paste in not appropriate, Excel’s Paste Special offers a wide range of options to paste only specific elements of the copied cells or perform a mathematical operation with the copied data.

For example, you can copy formula-driven data and paste only the calculated values in the same or different cells. Or, you can copy the width of one column and apply it to all other columns in your data set. Or, you can transpose the copied range, i.e. convert rows to columns and vice versa. The following screenshot demonstrates all available Paste Special options:

All of the Paste Special commands work within the same worksheet as well as across different sheets and workbooks.

Ctrl + C


Select the column(s) to which you want to copy the width. To select non-adjacent columns, hold down CTRL while selecting.

Press the Paste Special shortcut

How to copy a column’s width as well as contents

Quite often, when copying data from one column to another you have to adjust the destination column’s width manually to accommodate the new values. In this case, you may like the following way to copy the source data AND column width in one fell swoop.

Select the data to be copied and press

Ctrl + C


How to paste and add/subtract/multiply/divide at a time

Performing arithmetic operations in Excel is easy. Usually, a simple equation like =A1*B1 is all what it takes. But if the resulting data is supposed to be numbers rather than formulas, Excel Paste Special can save you a trouble of replacing formulas with their values.

Example 1. Replacing percentages with calculated amounts

Supposing, you have the amounts in column B and tax percentages in column C. Your task is to replace the tax % with the actual tax amount. The quickest way to have it done is this:

Select the amounts (cells B2:B4 in this example), and press

Ctrl + C

to copy them.

Select the tax percentages, cells C2:C4 in this example.

Press the paste special shortcut (

Ctrl + Alt + V

), and then either select Multiply under Operations, or press


. This will multiply each of the amounts copied from column B by a percentage in column C in the same row.

That’s it! As shown in the screenshot below, a tax amount is calculated for each row, and the result of the operation is a value, not formula:

By using the same approach, you can quickly increase or reduce an entire column of numbers by a certain percentage. In this case, you input the percentage formula such as =1+20% in a separate cell, copy it, and then use Excel Paste Special to multiply the source numbers by the value in the copied cell. The detailed steps can be found here: How to increase / reduce a column by percentage.

Example 2. Removing multiple hyperlinks in Excel

Type 1 in any empty cell, and press

Ctrl + C

to copy it.

Select all of the hyperlinks that you want to remove.

That’s all that it takes! All hyperlinks are removed along with the blue underlined formatting:

Tip. If you want to keep the original links and copy the results (i.e. data without hyperlinks) to some other location, then do as follows: copy the hyperlinks, select the upper-left cell of the target range, and hit the Excel paste values shortcut:


, then



For more information about this and other ways to get rid of hyperlinks in Excel, please see How remove multiple hyperlinks at a time.
