Excel must be open before copy in order to paste correctly
Please help me resolve this strange problem with clipboard pasting into Excel.
1. Copy text from notepad.
2. Open Excel 2010.
3. Paste into cell.
4. Cell now contains weird tiny picture. It looks sort of greek architectural - like a green sky background with outlined yellow columns and white stairs.
Excel must be open before anything is copied to the clipboard. Otherwise, the paste operation produces the ugly picture. This started this about a month ago.
