    Paste fails in Word (2003 SP2)

    Client has no problems pasting into all other apps but Word 2003 fails to paste screen shots. The same clipboard contents pastes into other apps with no problems.
    No message, just a basic "none response" in Word.

    Have you checked whether the client has ticked "Picture Placeholders" in the View tab of Tools | Options...? If so, the check box should be cleared.

    Also, can the user successfully insert graphics using Insert | Picture | Clip Art... and Insert | Picture | From File...?

    Thanks. Found the "Systematic" post after I left my message. The winword.exe /a resolves the problem so I have deleted the normal.dot file, with no change. Moved on to the COM add ins and now the data key. Waiting for feedback.
