Default Cut and paste multiple cells in Excel

Hello,
I using Excel 2003, I want to be able to select cells a2,a4,a6,a8,a10 and so
on, and paste them in b2,b4, b6,b8 and so on, when I cut them I get a
messages saying "The command you choose can't not be performed with multiple
selections". I know at one point someone had shown me away around this, is
this possible.
Thanks

Try this macro where col a is 1
Sub cutnoncontingent()
For i = 1 To 10 Step 2
Cells(i,1).Cut Cells(i,2i)
Next i
End Sub

I think that you could do this with a 'helper' column ... say in column c.
1
2
1
2
... etc

Then turn on autofilter, select 2, copy and paste.

Hi,

Since, you have alternate rows of values in the same column, click column
"A" heading, and then press the Ctrl key and drag it to cloumn "B". It is
simple.

But won't that also copy A1, A3, A5, A7, A9, etc., which (by implication)
the OP did not want to copy across?

Hi,

The earlier solution was incorrect. Thanks David Biddulph I apologize for
that post.

Answer. This solution works fine.

What you can do is Press the Ctrl key and select all the cells you want to
copy. Now copy and paste it in the word document. Copy those cells again
from the Microsoft Word document back to Excel to the right of the first cell
you selected in Excel befor copying to Word.
