    Hello everyone,

    I hope somebody can help with my problem.
    There's a password protected workbook, that I need to copy structure from in order to create a template. There are about 50 worksheets in that workbook with lots of formulas. I just don't want to try and recreate everything (design and formulas) manually - cell-by-cell, because it would take weeks. Let alone mistakes that are inevitable. When I try to just copy any worksheet from workbook in question and paste it to newly created workbook, all the formulas are gone and only actual calculated values get pasted. So, is there any workaround or trick to solve this problem? I don't seem to find any.
    Thank you in advance.

    MFDnSC,
    thank for your reply. Well, I did try this before I posted this question, but with no success. Excel didn't give this option when I tried to 'Paste Special'. No formulas whatsoever, just 'worksheet as an object' and so on. Nothing that could really help me. Is there anything else?
    Thanks.
