When I copy calculated values from Numbers and paste into a table in Pages, I get an image like the one below.  Non calculated values paste fine.


To get around this issue, I paste the calculated values into TextWrangler, then copy from there and paste into Pages.  Is there a way to go directly from Numbers to Pages with calculated values?

    I think maybe the easiest way to deal with this is with a small work around in Numbers.


    After you copy your values in Numbers, click on the page outside any table. From the Edit menu, select Paste Values. This will produce a new table with just the calculated values. Copy this and paste it into Pages. Now you can delete the extra table in Numbers. (Or just cut and paste).

    Hi 4th Space,


    I you are pasting into a table in Pages, follow Jeffs instructions.


    I you are not pasting into a table, this works. Copy the cells in Numbers. Go to your Pages document and under the Edit Menu > Paste and Match Style. It works like Paste Values.
