On the iPad, when pasting a formula, the value is pasted instead

Last updated: November 2016


When copy/pasting a formula on the iPad, Excel pastes just the values.

Status: Fixed

The Excel Team released a fix on November 14th in build 1.27.16111300.

Prior to the fix being available, we provided a workaround related to the iPad's "Speak Selection" setting; if you used that workaround, you may want to reverse it. Now that we released a fix, it no longer matters whether Speak Selection is off or on.

To turn this setting off, go to System Settings > General > Accessibility > Speech > Speak Selection > (On).
