I've developed a spreadsheet to manage my diet. I foolishly put several groups of columns that belong on a separate page onto sheet 1.....complete with formulas, proper formatting etc. How do I move the groups of columns and rows (with formulas and formatting info) onto a new sheet? I can do it using the Paste Special command, but the formulas come out all wrong, and would require a massive amount of re-edits to produce usable results, most of the problems are the formulas.

It's difficult to know without being aware of all details, but here are some ideas:

o Copy and paste using Paste Special, as you suggest, but tick the Link option in the Paste Special dialogue. That way, the new sheet will refer back to values in the original.

o Make a complete copy of the original sheet: right-click the sheet tab and select Move/Copy Sheet... . Delete material from both sheets as required.

o Use a careful combination of the above schemes.

If your spreadsheet is sensibly designed, correcting any formulae should generally require attention only to one instance and the use of the Fill function.

I trust this helps.

Optionally for bullet #2, I find it easy to click on the upper left block where the row and column IDs converge (left of "A" and above "1"). This selects the entire sheet. I then use Ctrl+c to copy everything, then go to the blank sheet, click on the upper left block on that sheet to select it and use Ctrl-v to insert the data and formatting. Note that I found that this does not copy the Print Range settings.
