I cant believe how hard this is. Sorry if this is a noob'ish question but i just cant figure it out.

So i have a column of values with some values coloured via conditional formatting. I want to copy the non-coloured cells to the adjoining cell. So i filter the column for non-coloured cells and select visible cells only. I deactivate the filter and paste into the adjoining cell however the results dont "retain" the location of the copied cell.

Time for some examples -

Test for Multiple Conditions in IF?
Use AND(test, test, test, test) or OR(test, test, test, ...) as the logical_test argument of IF.

I was going about this the wrong way, my solution - copy all the data in Column A into Column B, filtered Column B based on colour, deleted results. Unfiltered the list and i had my result. Learning in Excel that there is more than one solution to a problem. Mods, feel free to delete thread. Thank you.
