Thanks for the well wishes.

I highlighted the last column with all the total numbers of that judge's
scoring for that judge.

I then drag the highlighted numbers in each cell in each frew for that
column down from the first to the last story.

I right clicked and chose Copy.

I then opened a blank worksheet and there are 2 (two) Paste Specials.

I chose the 1st and it doesn't paste in the numbers so I then chose the 2nd
Paste Special but that didn't paste in the  numbers either.

I'm not sure what's going wrong?

Hi Charles

Great to know you are safe.

Regarding the copy paste, I think you are just doing normal Control + C
and Control + V *which will copy the formulae*

Please try paste special - paste values, when you paste on to the summary

Paste values In MS Excel :
Copy and paste specific cell contents

Copy and paste specific cell contents


Paste values In Libre Office calc :
Paste Special

Paste Special


Hope this helps

Hi All,

So grateful to have survived Hurricane Ian and to be able to help others in
the community.

It seems Excel isn’t as straight forward as I’d like.

Perhaps this is easier to do in Calc?

I opened a blank worksheet and thought I’d create the first column of rows
with each cell populated with the name each a story. I then created columns
with the heading of the name of each judge.

So, 50 rows (each story) and 4 columns comprised of each judge name and
then the last column named Total for total of points summed from each of
the judge’s scores.

When I copy by highlighting all the score numbers from a judge’s total
score column and the paste those scores into the 1st cell under the column
for that judge I get #REF! in each cell.

Is there a way to copy all those judge’s scores from each judge’s scoring
worksheet and pates them into a column for that judge in a new worksheet so
I have all the scores from all the judges and in the 4th column I can just
Click that Z Sum tab to add all 3 scores for each story (and then hopefully
sort them by highest score to lowest?

I’ve never taken any Excel nor Calc class which taught this.

Thank you so much.
