Ok my customer is trying to copy cells/data from Excel online to her local computer Excel sheet but when she copies she is unable to paste to her local Excel, however she can copy and paste ok within the online Excel sheet. She has been able to do this before but today it's not working.

When she open the Excel Online sheet it has a warning 'Excel Web App Warning Links Disabled Links to external workbooks are not supported and have been disabled'

I do not use MS Office apps offline nor online so not sure what to try with this.
