Application.DisplayPasteOptions property (Excel)

expression A variable that represents an Application object.


This is a Microsoft Office-wide setting. This setting affects all other Microsoft Office applications. Setting the DisplayPasteOptions property to True turns off the Auto Fill Options button in Microsoft Excel. The Auto Fill Options button is only in Excel, but the Paste Options button is in all the other Microsoft Office applications.


In this example, Microsoft Excel notifies the user of the status of displaying the Paste Options button.

Sub CheckDisplayFeature() 
 ' Check if the options button can be displayed. 
 If Application.DisplayPasteOptions = True Then 
 MsgBox "The ability to display the Paste Options button is on." 
 MsgBox "The ability to display the Paste Options button is off." 
 End If 
End Sub
