Excel Shortcut for Paste Values: How to Use

If you work with data in Excel, you know that there are many different ways to copy and paste values. The most common way is to use the Copy and Paste commands on the Home tab of the ribbon. However, there is a quicker way to paste values using a keyboard shortcut. In this article, we'll show you how to use the Excel shortcut for paste values.

When you copy and paste values, you're essentially making a duplicate of the data. The duplicate can be pasted anywhere on the worksheet, and the data will retain its original formatting. This is different from copying and pasting formulas, which will adjust the cell references when you paste them.

To use the Excel shortcut for paste values, first select the cells that you want to copy. Then press the Ctrl key and the letter V on your keyboard at the same time. This will paste the values from the selected cells into the cell that's currently active.

If you want to paste values into multiple cells, you can select those cells before pressing the Ctrl + V shortcut. The values will be pasted into all of the selected cells.

You can also use the Excel shortcut for paste values to paste data from one worksheet to another. To do this, first select the cells that you want to copy. Then press the Ctrl key and the letter V on your keyboard at the same time. This will paste the values from the selected cells into the cell that's currently active on the other worksheet.

Keep in mind that the Excel shortcut for paste values will only work if the cells you're copying have values in them. If the cells are empty, the shortcut won't work.

You can also use the Excel shortcut for paste values to paste data from one workbook to another. To do this, first select the cells that you want to copy. Then press the Ctrl key and the letter V on your keyboard at the same time. This will paste the values from the selected cells into the cell that's currently active on the other workbook.

Keep in mind that the Excel shortcut for paste values will only work if the cells you're copying have values in them. If the cells are empty, the shortcut won't work.
