The following code example uses the Copy method to copy the contents of a NamedRange control named NamedRange1 to the Clipboard, and then uses the PasteSpecial method to paste these contents into a NamedRange control named NamedRange2. The Operation parameter is set to xlPasteSpecialOperationAdd so that the content of each cell in NamedRange1 is added to the corresponding cell in NamedRange2.

This example is for a document-level customization.

private void CopyAndPasteSpecialRange()
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.NamedRange namedRange1 =
        this.Controls.AddNamedRange(this.Range["A1", "A3"],
    namedRange1.Value2 = 22;

    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.NamedRange namedRange2 =
        this.Controls.AddNamedRange(this.Range["C1", "C3"],
    namedRange2.Value2 = 5;

    // Copy the contents of namedRange1 to the clipboard, and then
    // paste the contents into namedRange2, adding each to
    // the value in namedRange2.
