Cutting
After you copy or cut a range of cells in Excel, an animated marquee appears around the selected range to remind
you to paste. Press Esc to clear the marquee if you decide not to paste the information. This also removes the data
from the Clipboard, as does making a new cell entry without pasting.
Cutting
Cutting also places the selection on the Clipboard but removes the selection from its
original location rather than make a duplicate. So, when you want to move information from
one fi le to another, you fi rst cut the selection from its original location and then paste it
into position in another fi le.
As with copying, you can use one of three methods to cut:
Press Ctrl+X.
Click the Home tab on the Ribbon, and then click the Cut button in the Clipboard
group.
Right-click on the selection, and click Cut in the shortcut menu.

After you cut information from a text document or placeholder, be sure to take a look at the location from which you
cut. In many instances, you might need to delete extra line spaces or add new spaces between words.
Pasting
Pasting places an item from the Clipboard into a new location within the same fi le or in
a completely different fi le or application. For example, Figure 3.21 shows the selection
from Figure 3.19 pasted from Excel onto a PowerPoint slide. Pasting fi nishes the overall
activity of either copying or moving information between locations. The method you use
to paste in Offi ce depends on whether you need to use the Offi ce Clipboard, which enables
you to paste multiple selections or a selection other than the most recent item you cut or
copied.
