Excel - Paste Special - Formulas - Multiply

Asked By pedrorvicent on 06-Feb-08 08:32 PM
In Excel 2007, when I select Paste Special > Formulas > Multiply it
doesn't keep the formulas, it just divides the destination cell (which
has its own formulas) by the value of the formula. Previously, in
Excel 2003 it divided the cell by the pasted formula but in Excel 2007
it divides the cell by the value of the pasted formula. Is it possible
to overcome this problem?

Thanks,

PRV

You seem to be mixing Multiply and divide in the text, but, presuming you
mean Multiply ...

I just tried it, and you are right. This is not good is it?.

Sorry if I mixed multiply and divide, but it happens with both
operations.

I guess there is nothing to do about this until MS corrects the
problem.

Thanks anyway!
