Hello,

After having deploying the following update on our computers (KB969682 - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/969682), we are not able anymore to make any copy/paste from Excel to Access 2007 and receive the following error msg (look at attachment):

 > The data on the Clipboard is damaged, so Regression tool can't paste it. <

Does anyone have a solution, beside uninstalling the update. A workarround or other bugfix would be nice :-)

After copying the data to the clipboard, close Excel. If prompted with this message:


There is a large amount of information on the clipboard. Do you want to be able to paste this information into another program later?
 

Click Yes to keep the data on the clipboard. Now you can paste it into Access without problems.

Let me know if it works for u? :-)
