Trying:
to undo or delete an object copied from an Internet site, which I pasted into a cell. Excel 2000, incl. recent Msoft Office 2000 online upgrade.

Tried:
Edit / undo; delete, cut, or move selected object; move cursor to another cell; select print area around the problem cell and copy to new worksheet; format selected picture (object); close worksheet or program without save; etc. Text bar is available for typing and editing.

What happens:
"Can't Undo"; "X" to close worksheet gets no result; format picture is not available; error messages: "Cannot quit Microsoft Excel"; in all other cases, "Reference is not valid".

How often:
First occurrence. Object is "E-mail: radio@glaciercity.us" from website
[http://glaciercity.us/KEUL/index.html]

Resolved!

Additional typing in the wonder bar was deleted, then the object in the cell selected. Delete was then available. Done and all is well :rolleyes:
