I keep trying to cut and paste a paragraph from a newspaper article into an MSWord file I have and get a message that MS Office Word has encountered a problem.

What is the problem? Solution?

@gollum,
Empty your clipboard and try again - it's possible there was some sort of transient conflict there.

If you highlight some text on a web page and then choose "copy" and then go into Word and just select the ordinary "paste", then what you are pasting is the text in web page format. There may be invisible web page codes that are causing Word to choke. Try going to the Edit menu and choosing "Paste Special" and then checking "Unformatted text".

@gollum,
To determine if it is a problem with MS Word or the newspaper article, open up Notepad and try pasting it there.
