Remarks

If you don't want to replace the contents of the specified selection, use the Collapse(Object) method before you use this method. When you use this method, the selection doesn't expand to include the contents of the Clipboard.

Unlike with the Paste() method, with PasteSpecial you can control the format of the pasted information and (optionally) establish a link to the source file (for example, a Microsoft Excel worksheet).
