I copied some data off of a website onto my Excel sheet and in the process I also copied a drop down menu and a button. Now I am trying to get rid of the drop down menu and the button but it wouldn't co-operate. I have tried everything, from simple deleting to deleting the entire row/column. It doesn't work.

Can someone suggest a way to get rid of it?

Thanks in advance.

Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.

It could be objects, try to click EDIT menu, Go To, Special, then check Objects. Then press delete.

Could try copy and paste special values into a new sheet if you don't need the formatting etc.

Dan,

I am sorry, I didn't quite understand your solution. My intention is to delete it not copy to another place.

Can you post your sheet so we can see what kind of dropdown are you referring to?
