    When I copy selected cell or cells, they only remain selected for 2 seconds so if I don't paste immediately, the paste function is greyed out. Recent issue. Worked fine for a year. Ran diagnostics - no errors. Repaired Excel - no change. Copy paste works fine in Word and IE so it's specific to Excel 2007. Affecting all Excel files whether .xls or .xlsx.

    Does it happen if you open Excel in Safe Mode? (hold down Ctrl key while opening normally, and answer Yes to prompt) If not, then it's probably an add-in or other startup file using a timed code of some sort.

    I guess the immediate question is what has changed on your machine recently? (it's not an issue I have ever heard of with XL2007)
