I have a handful of cells in several spreadsheets that contain =AVERAGE(<some range>) and when I try to copy them into another spreadsheet I just copy the function and get #REF!.

Is there any way to copy values? If it matters I'm using csv files.

Copy them, then Right click -> Paste special, tick "Numbers" and hit enter.

Also my favourite way of Paste Special is Shift+Ctrl+v - very handy and quick/ – r0berts Dec 12 '13 at 16:41
