2.x 3.00 3.00a 3.10 3.11 WINDOWS kbtool kbdisplay kbinterop

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows versions 2.03, 2.1, 2.11, 3.0, 3.0a, 3.1, 3.11

When you copy Microsoft Excel spreadsheet data and paste it into Microsoft Windows Write, the data in Write is not aligned as it is in Excel; the rows of data do not line up under the column headings.

When you import data through the Clipboard to Write, that data comes in as text separated by tab characters. You need to reset the tab stops in Write to have that data display and print correctly.
