copy and pasting into MS works word processor

Q: copy and pasting into MS works word processor

I have been trying to copy and past into MS works word processor. but I get a message that says "the information you copied exceeds the size limit for pasting into the word processor. Please try reducing the size of your selection.

What does that mean. I've never had a problem copying and pasting before. But it was on a different computer. This computer is less then a year old and runs windows vista. Do you have any idea what is wrong here and how do I fix it?

I bought a new Computer about 7 weeks ago With Vista home premium pre-installed on it, along with Microsoft works word processor 8.5 and I can't paste text into a document with works word even when I'm trying to copy only a few words. It only happens with web pages and stuff like that, but I could Copy and paste stuff like that in XP to notepad, Word pad, etc. Can I not do that anymore or do I need a new Program or something. It says"the information you copied exceeds the size limit for pasting into word processor. Try reducing the size of your selection, and then try copying and pasting again." I have to go to paste special and selecting unformatted text. How can I fix it so I don't have to do that, because it gets really annoying?

I use Google translate a great deal. I normally copy and paste the translation either to an email or to Word. This has stopped working. I seem able to copy and paste anything else. I can highlight the translated paragraph, click copy, move to wherever I want it, click paste and nothing happens. This was working fine until today. Any ideas or suggestions welcome. Thanks.

I say this to all victims of anxiety, do not make the very common mistake of confusing agoraphobia with shyness, embarrassment or social phobia. These fears may accompany agoraphobia but are not it. Whether one is outgoing or introspective is an asset or handicap socially but I am concerned here with victims of agoraphobia. All fear is nasty, but as bad as some fears are, they are not the literal 'hell-on-earth condition that the agoraphobe suffers day after day, repetitive panic-attacks that occur without warning or reason and devastate one's entire life. Theirs is hell-on-earth that others haven't experienced. A genuine case of agoraphobia is the scariest, loneliest disorder on earth.
Kind regards,

I tried saving it in another format, but the same result occured. Is there a solution to this other than spending a few hundred dollars on Office or Word? Thanks for any help.

Another problem has arised...i'm in the middle of sending off resumes by email...all the technical agencies want your resumes posting in word .doc format, my problem is the new machine came with MS works 7.0 which saves in .wps format. The word processor that comes with it is a terrible hashed version of WINWORD..(it is awful)....why are all the new machines being supplied with XP operating system that only allows MS works to run. I've tried to install WINWORD for XP but the system won't allow now i'm stuck with a word processor that saves in .wps when all the agencies use .doc, this must be happening to lots of people out there buying the latest machines, I suppose it will be okay in a few years when everyone is using MS works (this looks the way to go for word processing)....but at the moment they are not.
i've spent the last few days going to sites and forums to look up people with similar problems and there are people just like me with my exact problem, i've looked for any clues or answers but none of them look like they will work so i'm gonna have to rig up my old windows 95 / 32 MB memory ...

Also, there is a convertor software that allows conversion from .wps to .doc, but not all agencies who ask for your resume in .doc format will have this convertor software....and I heard that the convertor software also messes up the there is no way around this. I'll have to wait a few years until i see agencies and companies wanting your resume sent in .wps format.

Hi All,

I have had a rash of Windows error messages saying that Windows couldn't open several of my .wps files and saying that they might be corrupt.

I don't want to give up on those documents just yet so I downloaded a Microsoft Office Word Viewer, the old one, to see if I could open them with it.

Then, following the installation instructions, I clicked on the wdviewer.exe installer and got yet another error message.

This one said; Windows Installer ! The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation.

Now, as I am the only system administrator of my PC and I haven't set anything like that, that I can remember at least, I would like to know where to look to see the policies that I'm supposed to have set.

Is that something that I would have done through the Control Panel or through the tools settings in Firefox, and why would it only affect this one download?

I mean I download, install and run everything else that I want to on this thing, with no trouble, so why would that program be any different?

Thanks for any help.


A:MS Works Word Processor

Don't know what's going with the installation of the Word viewer, but I will tell you about opening up .wps files:MS Works and MS Word (full version) can open up .wps files. You would either have had to save the Works file as a .doc file first, or convert the file using Word after the Works Converter was added to your Word program.Read this Microsoft KB article regarding this issue: How to open a Works document in WordMy students have come to me many times for assistance with something like this, and without the converter, you can't open it. Rather, you can, but it looks like jibberish.

I have just done a clean install of W7 Ultimate 64 bit on 2 different Desktops. One is a Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo 5905P the other originally an HP Pavillion which now has an Asrock Mobo. I have reinstalled all my programs--no problems there. I use MS Works 8 Word Processor. This worked fine on both DT's under XP. However, it now works only on the Fujitsu, but not on the HP. The problem is it doesn't find the Files in My Documents. With Word Processor open, when I try to open a Document, the My Documents window comes up, with the message No Files found---there is no list of Files shown---though all files are in place in My Docs Folder. They can all be opened by individual clicking in that Folder---they just don't appear in Word! I have repaired Word Processor---I have uninstalled it and reinstalled from original CD. I have even cleared My Docs Folder and reloaded all Files---makes no difference.
I don't like MS Office---so who can tell me how to get this to work--as it does in the other PC---and as it did on both machines under XP SP3!
I get no error messages of any kind.

My OS is Windows ME. I had saved several word processor documents to CD disc and was working on one. I closed it out, then tried to open it again and got the following prompt: "Works can't open M:\report.wps. The file may be used by another application, the file format may not be supported by any of the installed converters or may be corrupt". This happened to three other files on disc, but the last one is ok. Since I'm not a wizard at this stuff, is there anyway to get the files to open? If it has been corrupted, I'm probably screwed. If not, what can I do? The stuff on disc wasn't something I can duplicate from memory. I made the file with Adaptic CD Creator (which is also supposed to create regular CD-ROM type discs, but I've never been able to get it to do that). I tried the program's own "scan disc" to repair it, but it's a lot more limited than my computer's scan disc and it didn't seem to do much.

A:MS works word processor

1. You can't repair a CD-ROM with scandisk.
2. Files on CD-ROM cannot be changed unless you have a re-writable CD-ROM disk.
3. I would never suggest anyone even attempt to work directly from a CD-ROM, rewritable or not.
4. Copy files from CD-ROM to hard drive, then right-click in Windows explorer and remove the read-only under properties.

Ask in the Other Software forum about CD-writer software.

Sorry! Wish I could help more.

I have MS Works Word Processor version 8.5 and it has worked perfectly for some time, but recently when I try to copy and paste it says "The information you copied exceeds the size limit for pasting into the word processor. Try reducing the size of your selection, & then copy & paste again" It doesn't matter how much I copy (5 words or 50 words) it does the same thing.
If I copy my information and paste it to notepad first then copy from notepad & paste to MS Works it works fine no matter how many words I copy.
This happens whether I copy from Internet explorer or other documentation.

I have Wndows XP Home with Microsoft Works Word Processor.

I find that while writing the application continually/periodically fades back to a non-editable state and I have to continually re-click back on it so that my typing actually appears in the doc. Sometimes I have been writing for quite some time only to realise that it is not appearing in the doc. This becomes very frustrating when one is writing a manuscript.

Hi Everyone,I did a quick search of the forums and didn't come up with anything similar to the problem I've just started having with MS Word.I'll be working on a document and saving my work every so often. Then all of a sudden Windows starts telling me that it can't save the file. I goofed and didn't think quick enough to get a screen shot of that message.However, I was able to copy past everything, from the document I was trying to save, to a new document, which is what I did as I had already had the same thing happen to me a couple of times before. Then when I clicked 'Yes' I get "This" message.OK, so then I click 'No on exit to close the document and got "This" asking if I wanted to save the changes to the document. Then I Just click No because that's the only option that will let me close that application. Then when I try to open it again I get "This" dreaded message.Have any of you guys ever run into anything like this before?It doesn't seem to matter if the document only has ten pages or if it has one hundred ten pages. Nor does it seem to matter if I have a lot of images in it or none at allI am at a loss as to what to do to prevent this form happening in the future.

Ah, the joys of the intuitive Microsoft selection of programs... What you need to do is open up the program options for auto-correct and tell it to stop doing automatic capitalization. If you like this feature, you could type "A. " (with the space), select the "A" and then type "a", and then click after the space.

Does this freeze happen with other programs? If so, then perhaps the processor chip is getting too hot and everything will lock as you stated. If it's a desktop, make sure the fan on the processor is spinning and a wire is not touching it (causing the fan to not spin).

I bought my computer in 2008ish, maybe 2009, and it came with Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit. It also came with pre-installed software, and of those pre-installed software included Microsoft Works Word Processor. I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit last week, and I have been painstakingly installing my programs back after I messed up the installation. First, I installed Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit, then I realized I put in the wrong disc so I then put in Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, then I upgraded to Ultimate 64-bit. All my programs got messed up in the process and I basically have a clean install of Windows 7 with a Windows.old folder containing my programs in a folder, which all need to be re-installed. I can see my Microsoft Works Word Processor, but it won't let me run the installation on it. I tried running it in compatibility modes for every available option, but nothing works. I also ran it as an administrator. How can I legally re-install these programs I purchased? I have tons and tons of .wps files that I want to be able to open with a program I purchased with my computer. Yes, I have heard of OpenOffice and it does not support .wps files. I do have Microsoft Office Professional 2013 installed, but it can't seem to open .wps files (unless I'm wrong).

A:Microsoft Works Word Processor

Microsoft Office 2013 is capable of opening Works 6-9 documents in a Compatibility mode.

To do that in Word 2013 you need to go File - Open - Computer - Browse.
In Open window you have to select a filter:

I've just been to see a machine which is running Works v7. The problem is that the word processor is unusable because it is going too slowly. It's "running" on WinXP and when I check the system performance I see that it (WksWp.exe) is using around 99% CPU time even though it's not actually doing anything. There is also the sound of much disk activity.

Is this a known "design feature" or is something going wrong elsewhere? I'm told it's been like this since the m/c was first bough a couple of months ago and no other application shows this behaviour.

Hello, I'm not very good with computers so bare with me please

I am a university student and today when I went to open my class notes in Microsoft Works Word Processor I found nothing but a blank page. The file was still there, with the exact same name, but all the text was gone. The document contained 15 hours of lecture notes needed for an exam in 6 days, so I'm naturally pretty anxious for help. I have since turned my computer on and off. I have tried converting the file to rich text format and back, to no avail. The size of the document says a mere 16 kb now as well.

I opened the seemingly blank document with notepad, and found a bunch of jargon along with 2 interesting clues. One was very small pieces of my class notes here and there, in between the coding and jargon. The second was towards the end of the coding, where it said various random things about my HP printer. I did perform a printer test today, and was wondering if that did anything to delete or corrupt my notes.

I performed a system reset back to 5 PM (the file appeared blank at 6 PM, when it said it was last modified). The file is still blank. I have also checked through the recycle bin, nothing. I've got Windows Vista, and my computer is a Gateway Notebook, 5 months old.

Microsoft was no help when I accessed their web page (too far over my head in their explanations as well as being not too user-friendly for my level of understanding). Does anyone know how I can get it open the right way again? I use Window's Vista on an Acer Extensa 5620. Thanks.

A:Solved: Microsoft Works Word Processor

This only applies for the Works word processor, the common one in Works NOT spelled with a capital W, as in Word.

First, only do this with the Work word processor not going.
If you really only want one default word processing template in Works (and it sounds like you do), and if you have no other templates that you want (and it sounds like you don't) then you can just delete all templates in this folder:
Then, just start up the word processor and see if it is fixed.

If that is not the case, just let me know and I will adjust and tell you what else you can do, instead.

I'm using Windows Vista on a Compaq desktop. When using the MS Works Word Processor it is always on "Times New Roman and font size 10". I don't use either of those but the processor is determined to make me like and use them. So anything I do is an excuse for it to go right back to them and I have to switch back to what I like and it is a pain. Grrrrr!

My system is Windows XP and I feel my computer user level is just basic. I have lost all the history in my Microsoft Works(7.0) Word Processor. (no clue how it got lost)When I go to My Documents I can see all the files from history but I cannot open any of them. When I try to open a file it directs me to buy Word Perfect(R) 11 software with an upgrade to Word Perfect 12 for $99.00. Should I buy the software? Is there a way to move the files back into the Word Processor history? Next to each file in My Documents it says WPEntrust Signed Document.

A:Microsoft Works Word Processor History

MS Works has nothing to do with Word Perfect! MS Works is related to MS Office. If you are looking for your documents, have you tried launching Works and going to File/Open to see what is there? Perhaps you had a trial version of Word Perfect in your computer, too. If you like the word processor in Works, perhaps you should upgrade to Word 2007 instead -- Word is a much larger, more diversified program than the abbreviated version in Works.

Hi there guys.
Okay so here's the issue.
I have an HP Pavillion a813w that had Microsoft Works pre-installed on my computer.

Now, I just did a roll back, totally reformated my computer on April 10th to total factory settings once more, so my computer is relatively unbuggy, or so I thought.
However, when I was sent a document from a friend today via AIM, and I scanned it with my virus scanner, it was clean. It had me say yes, I agree to the EULA, and then as it was loading up, it just seemed to disappear, I couldn't open up the document, and I have tried rebooting, and restoring both and it would do nothing.

I'm wondering if there's a reason for this..

I'm trying to figure this out, first time I've ever had Works do this, before I reformated that is.

I've been using Microsoft Works 8.5 Word Processor for a few years on Windows 7 and it works fine. However, I was dismayed to find out that I cannot do a bulk search for text across multiple files. It turns out that Works embeds nulls between each character. So CAT in a file is C(null)A(null)T(null). There is no way with any search program that I know of to search all the .wps files in a folder that have the word "CAT" in them.

I *could* keep two copies of every file (one in .txt format), but my goodness what a pain.

So I'm looking for:

a) A program that will do bulk searches of .wps files. (embedded nulls are tricky, you really can't type them in)
b) Another program that is similar to Works (Office is NOT similar to Works, it's a pain in the neck to use).

Any help would be *great* appreciated!



A:Works word processor files not searchable because of embedded nulls

Hi Donalds, welcome to the Seven Forums.

It's years since I have even seen Microsoft Works, I am afraid I am not able to tell you how to search files with those embedded nulls.

However, if I recall it correctly Works can also save using the Rich Text Format (.rtf). If so, you could try if the document content is searchable when saved as .rtf. If so, you would not only solve your issue but also make your documents more interchangeable, as the .rtf files can be shared, opened and edited with almost every modern word processor.

Trying to remember the various features of Microsoft Works word processor, I think I'm not too much wrong by recommending you the Windows 7 native WordPad word processor, to use it instead of Works. WordPad has all features needed for composing, editing and formatting complex documents. It also handles embedded images very nicely.

A:How to get rid of data - Copy when pasting?

One of the basic rules of computing, and I think this applies to everything from super computers to tablets and to all operating systems, is that you cannot have two files in the same 'place' with the same name.
If you want these two files as separate files then you are going to have to rename one of them - at its simplest append the date you created it. So, 'data1', 'data1' and so on.
If you only want one of them, the one with the latest data, then use the 'Save as' command. In your case 'Save as . . . data1.kom' and this will replace the earlier file with the later one.

Other instances of the "copy/paste" process where I copy text from a webpage or technical artical is not a problem. I have no idea what I am doing wrong. I have been coping and pasting stuff for a few years now and wondered why what I am doing does not work now. Thank you all for any assistance you feel kind enough to offer me.

A:Problems with Copy & Pasting Real Estate Widgets on various websites

Hello again forum team members, I noticed that "Microsoft Word (2007)" has a "clipboard". I thought that Windows 7 Home Premium did not offer a "clipboard" as such. With this find, I've tried to copy and then paste the "widget" code onto the Microsoft Word's clipboard. I then copy the code from there and paste it onto my webpage. However, all I see is the actual text of the code and not the real estate "widget". Yes, it's a little frustrating, but I've got to move forward because this is an important element that needs to be added to my website.

So, to make a long story short, when I copy the code of the widget from the real estate website, I must then paste it onto the Microsoft Word's "clipboard". I then copy if from the clipboard to paste the code on my webpage. However, only the code text shows and not the image of the widget. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance for all assistance. Bob

I am on xp on my home computer and have server 2k3 on a vps.

It worked fine before to copy and paste files to and from the desktop/s but I had to wipe my hard drive + reinstall xp on my home comp and now when I try copy/paste it is just greyed out.

I have ensured the option of clipboard is ticked as well as all the drives being selected in the remote connect options.

I have googled it and these are the only pieces of advice I've seen on offer so far.

I can still access the drives in my vps but I have to navigate through the whole trees each time to get to the file which is a real nuisance.

I wanna C+P between desktops like I could before...


A:Having problems copy/pasting files between desktops on remote connection

On the remote computer can you try stopping the Remote Desktop copy and paste program and then starting it again.

In task Manager on the remote computer locate rdpclip.exe and kill it (right click on it and End Task). Then Start>Run and type rdpclip.exe and hit Enter which will restart it.

Sometimes when I paste copy from a web site into a Word doc, I get a weird-looking font - a light gray and underlined - nothing like the original copy. Sometimes it pastes fine. How do I stop this from happening?

I can't copy/cut and paste in Word 2003. When I right-click, all the buttons are grayed-out. Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V don't work, either. The clipboard instructions say something about a highlight tool, but I can't find that. I have tried SafeMode, and that doesn't help. I haven't found any viruses or malware. I can't copy/cut and paste in Notepad, either, if that suggests something to someone. Any ideas?
