    Copy & Paste

    From time one uses Ctl C to copy, it does not always copy and one needs to rerpeat the process

    Is this an intermittent Microsoft problem?

    It does not happen often -only every now and then

    Probably not a MS problem.
    Some possibilities:
    * A dirty keyboard, or not pressing firmly enough
    * CTRL C doesn't work when a cell is in edit mode, or when the workbook isn't the active Window (even if it is the Window on top)

    A problem I have run into is "pasting" where the Crtl C does pick up the data but Excel will not allow the data to be pasted. If this is the issue it may have something to do with Add Ins. However, Using VBA execute the following "Applicaiton.EnableEvents = False" This resolves the paste issue. Just remember to make the statement "True" once done copying so Excel is back to full functionality.
