"Cannot Empty Clipboard" message
Posted by Doug Kelner on October 25, 1999 12:00 PM
Has anyone encountered the message "cannot empty clipboard"
when doing a copy/paste? Even doing a paste/special/format
results in the message.
Microsoft is saying that a communications program (we use
RHUMBA to communicate with the mainframe) uses the clipboard
and causes problems with Office 97. We did not have any
problem until we upgraded to Office 97.
Are they blowing smoke? If not, does anybody know of a
workaround (short of shutting down RHUMBA)?
