Thank you for your suggestion. For about 10 minutes I consider trying
that right away, but it is 22h30 in central Europe. ;-) The attack is
postponed until tomorrow, but my sleepy mind is already confident, that
I can achieve some facilitation this way.

The trouble is, that the “Internet source” provides me with an Excel
file, already. But the idea to copy content from this file into a new
one had not even crossed my mind, before. 

We'll see.

Good night, all.

    Good morning,

    I have data from an Internet-source where header values are distributed
    over three or more cells. Is there an easy way to transfer content
    to the single cell that I get by merging the original (e.g. three)

    Copy and paste, even with Ctrl+Shift+V, does not seem to help. I have
    several tables of this kind which should serve as base for diagrams. For
    now, I have the impression to be obliged to restore the (single) header
    cells one by one before going on.
