    Pasting text inserts tabs (Word 2000, SR1)

    I have created a macro which copies text from one document, does a paste special RTF into a new document. It works fine for all users, except one.

    With this user when the text is pasted, it all of a sudden has tabs in front of each line. I've looked at the normal.dot, the auto text and checked to see if had a style attached.

    I can't think of anything else.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The user is out of compliance and should be terminated. Problem solved! Just kidding.

    You could check the Tools...Options...Compatibility settings and see if anything is checked in there that might affect formatting.

    Any tables in the cut/paste content? RTF has various problems with tables. If you describe the text that is being pasted someone might have a better idea. Just text? Wrapped or single lines? What style and format?

    Thanks for the idea - I'll try that.

    The text I'm copying and pasting is an address. The macro creates an address label.

    I wonder if AutoFormat As You Type could be kicking in? Tabs, though, aren't the usual symptom; indents are. Hmmm...
