    copy / paste issue (2000)

    an interesting question regarding Excel came my way today from my boss who was having trouble with Excel.
    She was attempting to cut and paste certain sections of a sheet from Excel to Powerpoint.

    The result was- when she pasted in to power point, the right most columns would be cut off. She tried all of the paste special options and none worked.

    Anyone know why this happened and if there is a good workaround.
    What we eventually did is have her select additional rows to the right of the information she wanted and paste that... so the columns were still being dropped, but not the ones she wanted to display.

    Generally when copying to PowerPoint, I copy a picture. You can add the camera icon to the toolbar or hold the <Shift> key while left mouse clicking on "Edit".

    Also, are you sure the data which was cut off was within the right most column boundries. Text will flow into the next cell area, if the next cell is empty. Try widening the right most cell prior to the copy/paste.
