Hi Krishna,

Test from File means you can select a file to paste all of the text within it into your word document.

The Paste option (Ctrl+V) pastes whatever you've copied to Windows clipboard via Ctrl+C

Hope that's helpful.

Hi Andrew,

So, you mean Text from file exactly doing the same thing, what paste (Ctrl+V) option is doing. Am I right?

Not quite. "Text from File" will insert (paste) everything in the file you select.

Paste (Ctrl+V) will only insert what you copy to Windows clipboard via right click and select "Copy" on a block of text or using Ctrl+C to copy the text you want to paste via (Ctrl+V)

Does that make it clearer?

Hope that's helpful.

Hi Andrew,

Since, I am a macro developer and I know the usage of Text from file and paste option. Text from file will copy all content from the document and paste option will paste the contend from the clipbord. But my question is both will do the same thing like retaining formating and styles and paragraph properties.

My doing one project now, suddenly the above question came into my mind and I just confused.

Hope, you can able to understan my question?

That would have been helpful to mention in your question :)

Yes, it will, providing that whatever is being pasted in has the ability to acknowledge the formatting code included in the paste.
Hope, you can able to understan my question?
Does this answer help any?

It is easy to say if the file is a Word file, and the clipboard contains the complete content of that file.
In that case both operations are doing the same, retaining format and everything.
As Andrew stated correctly, the difference is in the source - file or clipboard.
