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.
