    Question Copy and paste (as values) every nth column

    Dear forum,

    I have a very large workobbok that I wish to make lighter by hardcoding parts of it. The idea is to take every second column (A, C, E, ...) in Sheet2 (which references to Sheet1) and paste it back as values so that I can delete Sheet1 altogheter afterwards and only have formulas in B, D, F etc.

    Any ideas on how this can be done efficiently?

    I have attached an example of the workbook. copypasteexample.xlsx

    Looking forward to your replies - many thanks in advance!

    /Borge
