All Microsoft Office Applications like Microsoft Excel, PPT and other have their own clipboard feature. Microsoft Office allows their users to copy the same formatting or paste it as a plain text.
Sometimes when the user tries to copy anything from the Microsoft Excel file then Excel application throws an error message “There’s a problem with the clipboard, but you can still paste your content within this workbook”.
This happens when a user tries to copy something because another application is using your clipboard. Once Microsoft Office starts throwing this error message then from that time you can only copy and paste to other programs, but not on any Microsoft Office applications.
Before fixing this issue, you have to find out that which program is using your clipboard and preventing you from accessing through Microsoft Excel.
This error message appears when you press Ctrl+C, Ctrl+X, via the Format Painter and only copying complete cells. But, it doesn’t appear up while trying to copy an element of the cell content.
I have browsed several excel communities in the search of a solution and found that this error message appears up several times while using Excel. It is an irritating error message that generally comes in to view at the second Ctrl+C after opening an Excel spreadsheet. (more…)
