    Office Clipboard (2000 SP3)

    I use Word as my email editor in Outlook. I receive a number of emails which I must copy information from and paste it into a word document for formatting. When every third or fourth copy from the email, the window below pops up and I have to click on the upper right x to close it since I never need to use previously copied info. Does anyone know how to turn this feature off?

    This does raise the interesting question of how many people find this feature useful. I have not yet come across anyone who wants it enabled by default, so in a spirit of inquiry I submit the following poll.

    <FORM METHOD=POST ACTION="http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/dopoll.pl"><INPUT TYPE=HIDDEN NAME="pollname" VALUE="1137349874StuartR">

    Re: Office Clipboard (2000 SP3)

    Legare,

    Should you migrate to Word XP or 2003, there's an easier way to do this w/o any registry hacks (see attached). I guess MS got the message (per Stuart's poll) and provided a user-interface mechanism.

    BTW: I find this useful on rare occasion. Guess how I voted.

    EDITED: I believe in Word 2003, the default was to have it off. I recall seeing what you're getting when I was on Word 2000. Somehow, I didn't miss it when I went to Word XP and 2003. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
