This is puzzzling. I have recently bought a new computer (I won't bother you with the compatability problems I have) which has Windows 7. It has Works 9 and all my old Works databases, spreadsheets and word documents have transferred succesfully. I receive regular updates to one Works database via an Excel spreadsheet and there has never been a problem transferring material across to the database. Now it refuses to copy from Excel to the database but will do it the other way round. All I get is, mysteriously, the word Picure in the chosen database cell. Any ideas?
Thank you for your suggestion b ut I can't quite see how this would work as you can't paste until you have copied and Works 9 doesn't a paste special. To repeat, copying works fine from Works to Excel but not the other way round.
I am re-starting this as I have been away over the Christmas period. Jaraba suggested saving the excel sheet as a works sheet - can't see a way to do this. Can't find notepad either! The crucial point is that I use the database to print address labels so the material I receive on excel sheets just HAS to be transferred to the Works dtabase. No matter what I try, I just get a cell containing the word Picture.
