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
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.
