Hi

I have some functionality I'm trying to get to work. I allow a user to copy rows from a datawindow into the clipboard. Behind the scenes I copy the selected rows to a datastore.

The problem is if they then paste the values into Excel , change some values and try to paste the rows back into the visible datawindow, there is no change. Behind the scenes I try to do a Paste() into the datastore then row by row put them back into the visible datawindow but nothing seems to happen. The datawindow object is external.

any ideas would be appreciated.

cheers
