Using Cut, Copy, and Paste in a Report

In addition to using drag and drop features to rearrange report items, you can use Cut, Copy, and Paste functions.

For example, if you have a report that contains two spreadsheets and a graph, you can rearrange the order of the spreadsheets by using Cut and Paste functions. The following steps show you the process of moving (cutting) a spreadsheet (or other document in a report) and pasting the spreadsheet to a different area of the report.

  1. Right-click on the spreadsheet that you want to move (cut).

  2. Select Cut from the Report shortcut menu. This action places a copy of the item on the Clipboard. Alternatively, you can click the Cut toolbar button.

  3. Click in the report where you want to place the spreadsheet. Then, right-click and select Paste from the Report shortcut menu. Alternatively, you can click the Paste toolbar button. This action places the spreadsheet (that you had cut to the Clipboard) in the desired location in the report.
