Inability to paste formulas in excel

May 24, 2013 at 08:37:59
Specs: Windows 7
I got a new laptop with Office 2013. When copying and pasting formulas in excel, the actual result from the cell I copied keeps pasting, not the formula. Even when I paste special formula it keeps pasting the result. I have to type the same formula in each separate cell where I want to see the calculation results. Is there a setting somewhere within excel that I need to change?

This site (as well as others) blames Skype for a similar problem with Excel 2010.

The thread in this link is pretty old (2008) but it talks about certain programs hijacking the clipboard and causing the problem you are seeing.

If you DAGS on your issue, you'll get lots of hits.
