The behaviour that I am talking about is...
1. Insert value into A1, select the cell with the mouse so it is 
highlighted then copy with Ctrl-C
2. Select 3 or more other cells -- NOT in a continuous block (e.g. B2 
and C3).
3. Try and paste with Ctrl-V and you will get the error "Insert into 
multiple selection not possible"

I checked and this functionality has been available since Excel 2000.
