Help with MS Word
May 8, 2007 1:08pm CST
I have Microsoft Word 2002 I used to copy and paste without any problems. Since yesterday I can't do that anymore. I copy something and it shows in the clipboard but it wouldn't paste it in the document. Word is working fine and there is no other problem than the copy and paste. I am wondering what is causing this. Have you ever had this kind of problem? Do you know what is the cause and how to fix it?

try doing a virus scan. if this wont help, try doing the copy/paste using the keyboard and the edit-copy/paste sequence. if this wont work, try restoring your system to an earlier date when you still dont have any problems like this. if this wont still work, i think your final action is to reinstall microsoft office.

Thank you matrix_04. Thank you for this information I'm sure it will help me with future problems. Actually I completely closed MS Word and when I run it again the copy and paste worked. I don't know what happened but I am finding out that sometimes closing the application and restarting it again resolves the problem. Same with windows when it freezes. After I restart the computer everything is back to normal. Thank you!

Hi, No I do not know what the problem is here as it should be still working did you try a few times or onlhy the once. Although maybe it needs to be updated to a newer version when was the last time you used it as mine is working ok although I believe that I have a newer version of Microsoft Word.
