    Using Excel in XP, is there a way to paste additional columns into an autofiltered list without filling in the hidden rows that are not part of the selected list? I am trying to combine two spreadsheets, and need to paste a ton of data into one spreadsheet.

    I hope that this is clear enough to convey what I need to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    SED

    You cannot insert a column with the autofilter showing only selected data. Just set the filter(s) to All and then you can insert the columns, then you can reset the filters. You can, however, paste a column in with the filter on - just copy the data and then put the cursor in the top cell of the column you want to paste into - it will be filtered also.
