Removing formulas from a sheet but keeping the results

Hello all,

I have been creating a very large spreadsheet (heavily formated, heavily formulated) over the past financial year.

I now want to send the results out to people. The ideal thing would be if I could just remove all the formulas from the sheet and keep the results.

I tried copy and paste, etc but the formating wasn't really working. It would be so easy for me if I could remove the formulas....(many thanks!!!!)

PS Is formulated a real word or did I just invent a new one?

Cheers from fugeg70

Re: Removing formulas from a sheet but keeping the results

Hi firefytr,

Many thanks.....

Yeah I tried first to copy the format then paste special and then to copy the values and paste special them on top. However, it mucked up all my printing and borders, etc. It is an option and may be what I need to do but there is a massive amount of work required to go though and get it all looking exactly the way it does with the formulas in it.....nightmare!

Re: Removing formulas from a sheet but keeping the results

Following on Zacks suggestion, this may speed things up for you a bit. It will Copy-->Paste Special-->Values in each sheet in your workbook.

Sub CopyValues()
    Dim ws As Worksheet
    For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
        ws.Activate
            With ActiveSheet.Cells
                .Copy
                .PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:= _
                False, Transpose:=False
            End With
            With Application
                .CutCopyMode = False
                .Goto Reference:=['Sheet1'!A1]
            End With
    Next ws
End Sub


Hope that helps,

Smitty
