    MS Access Bizarre Paste Problem

    I have a database that requires me to copy data from a spreadsheet into a corresponding table in Access. Its a .mdb created in 2003 but I use 2007.

    Ive never had a problem before, but today when trying to update the table with new data I was getting this error:



    Ive never had that before, and have done this same procedure without a problem for over a year and a half now.

    It did let me paste into a new table, and then from that new table to my existing table, but just not directly into the existing table.

    Tried it on a few machines as well with the same problem, and even tried a few various backups of the database too to see if something had corrupted somewhere along the lines.

    Oops, ive obviously overwritten the original screenshot with a different one, so disregard that above.

    Anyway, turns out this is the problem:

    The Data on the Clipboard is damaged, so Microsoft Office Access can't paste it

    with some workarounds.

    Its mentioned in the KB article here:

    MS08-074: Description of the security update for Excel 2007: December 9, 2008

    In case anyone else is looking for an answer to this problem.
