Can't paste WordPerfect text into Outlook Express mail
Posted on 2002-03-20
Any loyal WordPerfect users out there like me? I have a new Dell Dimension 4400 with Windows XP as the OS. I installed both MS Office XP, which I just purchased, and WordPerfect Office 2000 (WordPerfect 9), which I already owned. I need Word and Excel for certain uses, but I still prefer good old WordPerfect for general word processing. The problem is that although I can cut, copy, and paste text within WordPerfect, I can't copy and paste text from WordPerfect documents into Outlook Express mail. I can paste-in Word text, so the problem is with WordPerfect. Occasionally, when I try pasting WordPerfect text into Outlook Express mail I get an error message from WordPerfect that says, "The OLE object would not be created. This error is usually caused by incorrect data about the server in the Windows regisration database." In short, I can copy and paste text from Word files but not from WordPerfect files, at least from my version 9. Can any one help me resole this problem?
