    This problem I had about needing to paste into Notepad then this forum has now been resolved since a new update arrived to MSEdge today. The problem was with MSEdge
    Thanks for letting us know. Our workplace has had problems with Edge and other applications we use for work. Maybe those will work now too.

    Since this may be useful to other people, and may be viewed at some point down the road, would you mind posting the current version number of Edge that it works on now, so we will have that information recorded here?

    Thanks

    1. Use the built-in Help that comes with Excel/Access
    2. Use the Search functionality on this board
    3. A lot of VBA code can be acquired by using the Macro Recorder.

    I'm now using Windows10 1803
    And Microsoft Edge 42.17134.1.0
    Be sure and always test this script on sample data the first time you use this as to avoid any problems with your data. Always trying to learn more and help others where I can. I'm using Excel 2013.

    .. but not inherently with Edge. It still had to be some setting in Edge and/or some combination of that and perhaps Windows settings because before that Edge update I was able to paste directly into the Reply window while using Edge & Win 10 with no problems at all - ref posts 13 and 18 in this thread.
    Hope this helps, good luck.

    I think it may have to do with what version of MSEdge.

    Possibly, but don't Windows & Edge just update automatically for you? They do for me and I now have the identical versions of both that you quoted in post 22, so I assume that I also had identical versions when I made posts 13 & 18.

    In any case, I'm glad it is now resolved for you.
    Hope this helps, good luck.
