Hi I was wondering if there is any way to paste a series of texts into each cells instead of all of the texts in a cell.

Example I want to paste "LLLLLLL" into excel, I want it to be in Cell A1, B1, C1, D1, E1, etc instead of all the "LLLLLLL" in A1. Is it possible?

wedding,

yes ,the Text to Columns feature would split your data from a single cell into the cells to the right.

If the Copied text is a Copied Excel Cell (not just text) - Yes:
Simply select the desired range and Paste.
