moderated Re: Copying contents of a sheet

Hello, the unique thing with Excel is that if you press control A for
select all, it will select only the current data range, stopping where
there are blank cells, regardless if there are more cells in the
worksheet. If you press control A a second time, the entire worksheet
will be selected. Then you can copy and paste into another worksheet.
In the Home ribbon under format cells, there are a bunch of options
for renaming and creating worksheets, and you'll want to rename that
second worksheet quickly, as well as make alterations to the copied
set of data. In that list of options is the copy worksheet option, but
the method I used above works as well.

Subject: Copying contents of a sheet


I need to copy the contents of a sheet and paste the contents into another
sheet in another workbook. The trick is that I do not know which cells in
the sheet contain data.

Any suggestions on how to find out what range of cells have data. Then the
best way to select that area to copy to the new sheet.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
