Do you mean one cell,...ie F2 then F9 keys...or a range to convert line copy | special paste | values

My guess is they want to "freeze" dates. I guess other situations might prompt this inquiry, but for many newcomers, experience with formulas begins, and ends, with Today(), or Now().

Copy your data. Go to another sheet or somewhere else on your sheet. Edit/Paste Special and tick Values. You will now have the values only but your original formulas will be intact.

If I have misunderstood please post back.

I believe the reason for copying your "in tact" data to another spread sheet or coping it to another range (as VoG™ states) of your worksheet(before you convert) is that once converted to values and saved...its done ...I don't think you can get reconverted values back to formulars...it won't come "back from the grave"....
