An Excel file that I have copied & pasted items to from Notepad w/o any prob's does not now work.
Previously I would Select All in Notepad & Copy, then PasteValues as Text into Excel. When I try now, for some reason the Paste & PasteSpecial options are greyed out & I have sometimes got a msg "cannot empty office clipboard". When I open the office clipboard pane it appears empty.

Hope someone can help.
Cheers,
Scoobyblue

Think this is sorted now. I logged off & downloaded latest MS Office Updates, re-booted and am now able to copy & paste without any problems.
