    Default copy hidden cells

    Hello -

    I am using Excel 2007. In prior versions of excel, when copying data, if I wanted to copy visible cells only, I would select "Go To, Special, Visible Cells Only" and then copy a range a cells. The default was always set to copy everything (including hidden cells), unless I specifically selected copy visible cells only.

    In 2007, the default is somehow set to always copy only visible cells. Sometimes, I want to be able to copy all cells including those hidden but cannot seem to figure out how to swith this default option. I looked under Excel Options and did not see an option there.

    I don't want to have to unhide and rehide everything each time i copy. I know i could do the hiding and unhiding via VBA but would prefer not to have to.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    In Excel 2000 only the visible cells are copied. So I don't think anything has changed.

    thanks Andrew for your response. I was able to copy all cells just fine (including those hidden) until the other day when i decided i need to copy visible cells only. so i went to goto, special, visible cells only. Ever since then, i am only able to copy visible cells whether i want to or not. Maybe this is just a fluke but it feels like there should be some setting to toggle on this. please let me know your thoughts. thanks
