Summary:

When pasting information from a Microsoft Works version 2.00 Spreadsheet document to the scrapbook, the area copied is not visible in the scrapbook. The information is there, but it will not be displayed on the screen.

To correct this problem, do the following:

  1. Select the information in the spreadsheet.
  2. From the Edit menu, choose Copy.
  3. From the File menu, choose New.
  4. Double-click the Word Processor icon.
  5. From the Edit menu, choose Paste.
  6. Reselect the information that was just pasted.
  7. From the Edit menu, choose Copy while holding down the SHIFT key.
  8. Open the Scrapbook.
  9. From the Edit menu, choose Paste.

The information will appear correctly in the Scrapbook.

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Works version 2.00. This problem was corrected in Works version 2.00a.
