i have two workbooks each 12 sheets  i want to move one sheet from workbook 2 to a location in workbook 1
when i do that, the computer says "the area of rows and columns does not match where you want to take it. do THIS  COPY AND PASTE the RELEVANT SHEET ON ANOTHER NEW SHEET AND TAKE THAT SHEET INTO WORKBOOK 1 AT THE LOCATION YOU WANT IT"   WHEN I DO THIS THE PASTED COPY MAGNIFIES ABOUT 6 TIMES

COULD YOU PLEASE HELP  BEFORE THAT IF YOU have ANY QUESTION PLEASE ASK ME

THANK YOU

Answer
Hi Aamir,

If the problem is about magnifying 6 times, please check the font size in the destination sheet. Also please check if the zoom is at 100% or is it at something more.

Alternatively, when you past the data, a small icon appears near the pasted data which will allow you to decide whether you want to keep source formatting, match destination formatting, or keep text only etc.

Hope this helps,
Gulshan.
