Is it possible to only copy the formatted value and not the actual value in the cell? For example if I have a date, 11/12/05, and I format it to show Nov-05, when I copy the cell I only want it to paste Nov-05. What happens is that it still pastes 11/12/05 with the Nov-05 format. Any ideas?

Hi,

Use Copy / PasteSpecial, clicking on Values and number Formats.

Sure,
Kind of a 3 step process but it works.

Column A has your date
Nov-05
Column B has this code:
=TEXT(C13,"YY"&"-"&"MMM")
Then copy column B's data
Go to Column C and Copt Special Values only!

I don't think you can select both Values and Format in Excel 2000 or earlier??
