Hi there, looking for a bit of advice, for some reason my microsoft works word processor wont accept any words at all when I try to paste them into a document, I get an error message that says "the info you copied exceeds the limit for pasting into a word processor, try reducing the size of your selection then copy and paste again"
. Well I have reduced it down to one word and it stil shows this message, can you give me an idea as to how to correct this problem
thanks!!!

I assume you are copying from a web-page when this happens. Instead of using the 'Paste' command click on the Edit menu and then Paste Special. Select Unformatted Text in that box and click OK.

This is Microsoft's explanation of the problem - although it is fairly out-of-date it is still relevant to your problem.

Maybe you have gone on to a new browser - perhaps IE6 to IE7 (or even to IE8)?
