Microsoft Word/copy & paste


Hi Aidan,

Please, I need your help here.
I made a spreadsheet on Excel with all the formulas and I needed to copy paste it. It pastes only the figures and not the table.
I've tried to create a table on Word and it's the same thing again. It copies and pastes only the figures/writing but not the table or the colors. It was working properly and have no idea what happened.
I'm using windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2007. Would you be able to help me out here, please? Will appreciate so much.


This appears to be an issue related to the operating system (as copy/paste are OS functions) and there do seem to be articles relating to this on the net -for example

I got this by using the phrase "copy paste problems windows 7" in a search engine (google in my case, but any would do) - it isn't something I've encountered myself but hopefully these links will get you back up to speed again.
