If you are using this option within a rate sheet with existing manually created data, please be aware that in case of discrepancy between the number of weight columns on the manual tab and on the copy-paste tab, data on the manual tab will be erased completely, and changed with the copied one. In case of full correspondence between those, data will be added in the end.

To use the Extended Copy-Paste variant go to eRates copy paste tab.

Here you need to have the full list of rates with Origins and Destination in your Excel file. Kindly check the example provided below.

Please, note, the only obligatory columns are the ones filled in Excel examples.

Copy-paste feature allows you to copy destination, minimum charge, deck position, and rate type information and easily paste it to the rate sheet, to make it correctly please follow the next requirements:

a. For text fields:
1. Make sure that Airport Code, Deck, and Rate Type column in UPPER format (see Figure 1);

Figure 1. Airport code, Deck, and Rate Type should be always UPPER formatted.

2. All text fields should be aligned to the left side (as in Figure 2);

Figure 2. Text formatting example.

3. Wrap Text feature has to be disabled (it is available to turn it off on the Home tab, see Figure 3);

Figure 3. Make sure the Wrap Text feature is disabled.

4. Theme font and text size do not have any serious influence on copy-paste option but it’s preferable to have Colibri font with 11 text size; (as in Figure 4)

Figure 4. Preferable theme font and text size.

5. Also, be so kind to check that all text fields do not have any Color formatting like Fill color (background cell color should be No fill by default), Front color (text color should have Automatic black color), all Conditional formatting should be turned off as well (available to turn off on Home tab) (as in Figure 5, 6 and 7).

Figure 5. How to disable Conditional formatting example.

Figure 6. Example of No Fill cell color selected.

Figure 7. Example of automatic text color selected.

b. For number fields:

  1. All number fields should be aligned to the right side (Figure 8);
  2. Wrap Text feature has to be disabled (it is available to turn it off on the Home tab, see Figure 3);
  3.  Numbers should have been split only by dot, not by comma (e.g. 0.9 NOT 0,9, see Figure 8);
  4. Same as for text that’s better to disable all Conditional formatting for number cells as well as format all numbers only as Number type (can be done on Home tab in Number section, please check Figure 9).
