I have a worksheet with an upper
part that is colored using
conditional formatting depending
on the lower part. I would like
to copy the upper part of the
worksheet (without the lower part!)
and keep my colors.

Is this possible? I tried all
combinations of paste special
and format painter to no
avail.

Thanks so much!

Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

This is a very old topic, and maybe it's bad form to pull up old topics, but I was searching and this is exactly what I need. However, after I paste it as a picture, I can no longer manipulate it as data. Is there another way?

This subjec is of interest to me too. I assume there is no known answer?

I want to use the color coding created by the conditional format and take just the colors and paste them on other data. (currently perhaps the best is to sort by conditional area then recover non-conitional style and cut and paste? booo)
