Copying a cell and pasting in another app pastes the formula not the value

Web Applications Asked by Andy Joiner on October 12, 2020

Excel-online is copying the cell formula, not the cell value to the computers clipboard, e.g.

Given that I copy a cell showing a value in Excel online

enter image description here

When I paste, the formula is pasted instead of the value.

enter image description here

I was expecting the number “2” to be pasted. This is what used to happen.

This suddenly started happening today on a spreadsheet that we have been using for weeks. The same thing happens when I create a new spreadsheet.

If I open the spreadsheet in Excel desktop, the value is pasted as expected.

One Answer

A day later and my excel-online spreadsheets are pasting as expected. Feels like A/B test.
