Copying tables from Excel 2016+ into Publisher is not working properly

Recommended Posts

The copying content from Excel's multiple cells and tables is not working well. When following steps from help the content is not copied (paste special) to the Pulisher's table. When the table (from Excell 2016) is saved in older format e.g. Excel XLS 2003+ and then reopened in the Open Office, then copied into the Publisher -- everything is working properly.

In case of  Excel 2016+ it was possible to insert the content to only one cell.

Does anyone have encountered this error?

Hi Arghmath and Welcome to the Forums,

For this to work, you'd need to select 2 cells and then Paste the information from Excel, that should then paste the information correctly :)

Thank you for the quick reply.

Yes, exactly this is what I was doing -- many times ;). When copied from the Excel it was not working, from Open office yes. Maybe it could be related to the content with text. Cells with numbers was possible to copy from the both programs without no problem.
