Description Alan Greer 2014-10-09 08:01:39 UTC
This issue is briefly discussed in the following thread:

Adding an option to the "copy to" feature of a data filter (like that in Paste Special) would greatly enhance the power of the filters. I appreciate that this is a quasi database function but then again so is the whole concept of filters anyway.

I am guessing that the infrastructure already exists - it is just a question of how to incorporate the additional options in the filter dialogs.

A little example follows:

a	b	c	d
		1	10
		2	20
		3	30
Total	Smith	6	60
		4	40
		5	50
		6	60
Total	Jones	15	150
Result I get:			
a	b	c	d
Total	Smith	0	0
Total	Jones	0	0
Results I would hope for:			
a	b	c	d
Total	Smith	6	60
Total	Jones	15	150

Regards, Alan

OK, but I do not see this is exactly relevant to my request for an enhancement.

I specifically want the cell computed _values_ copied and not the cell formulae so what you see in the destination (wherever that is, same sheet or otherwise) is what you "see" in the original cells that you want to replicate. Call it "copy by value" not "copy by reference" which is sort of what the current implementation does.
