MS Word erases my clipboard!

Reply Sat 5 Feb, 2005 06:43 pm

This has happened for quite some time (even before I upgraded to SR) and it's driving me crazy! Whenever I copy some text from a webpage (I use IE), then open MS Word, and attempt to Paste it, there's nothing there.

Even if I then try to paste into another program, there's nothing.

If MS Word is already open, copy/paste work just fine.

This is not a huge issue except when I want to save a copy of some long diatribe I've written in a webpage email and forget to open MS Word first.

How do I fix this problem?

IE 6.0.2900
Windows SP2
Word 97 SR2
Compaq computer 1 gig RAM, lots of HD space

General- I will be watching this thread. The exact same thing is happening to me. I end up pasting the stuff into WordPad, and that works. Strange!

If MS Word is already open, copy/paste work just fine.

You just taught me something. It did work for me, when Word was opened before I copied some stuff!
