I have just noticed Paste from Clipboard (Ctrl+V) doesn't work the same in CE as it does in SS4. I have a spreadsheet of floor areas that I select in excel and Ctrl+C. If I paste into a drawing sheet opened in SS4 I get:

Why does it not paste in the same? WE use this a lot so for the program to not work the same as SS4 is a problem and another reason to stay with v8i.

Marc. Thanks for coming back to me but that doesn't work as it wants to import the whole sheet. I just want a small selection from the spreadsheet.
I did try what you suggested with tables but it spent 2 mins 'generating table' which I cancelled out of in the end.
How do I import (paste?) a small selection from a spreadsheet that keeps all the formatting of the original?
More to the point why has this changed from the way SS4 does it?
You're expecting this?
If so which options do you pick?

How do you get that dialog?
'mdl load olecntr; olecntr pastemethod'
'Load key in mdl load olecntr; olecntr pastemethod' previous incorrect text with apostrophe in the wrong place...
These two command load up the OLE paste methods, this is being fixed for U15.
