Cannot Cut and Paste From Excel

I am trying to simply cut and paste from Excel into the Xcelsius spreadsheet. Even though the user manual indicates to copy from Excel and right click where you want to paste, the Paste and Paste Special functions are greyed out. It is almost like the cells are locked or protected somehow. I selected Formal Cells -> Protection and unlocked the cells but still nothing. Any ideas? Excel 2007

    Hello,

    I think you probably just have a locked read-only spreadsheet inside Xcelsius for some reason. Save your spreadsheet and Xcelsius file, then close out of both. Open your spreadsheet and see if you can copy and paste from it to another application. If you can, then open Xcelsius and try again. If not there is an Xcelsius setting that is not right. Can you copy/paste other things into Xcelsius?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    It seems your workbook was locked. Try the following... it might help you.

    I know some of you out there have hit this problem in the past and now we have a workaround...

    If you try to add/remove/modify a worksheet in the Xcelsius embedded Excel and you can't do it.

    1. Start to unprotect the workbook:

    Office 2007 (Ribbon menu in Xcelsius or Excel). Select Review > Protect Workbook > Protect Structure and Windows.

    Office 2003 (menu only in Excel). Select Tools > Protection > Unprotect Workbook.

    2. You will be prompted for a password.

    3. This is the password (the O is an uppercase o):

    fazOh1+u

    4. Click OK and the spreadsheet should no longer be locked.

    Let me know if still your problem exists.

    Regards,

      Now i got your point. From a external spreadsheet you want to copy the data to embedded excel sheet.

      Directly its not possible, but you can copy and paste the data in notepad and from notepad copy the data and paste in embedded excel sheet.

      It works for sure.

      Regards,
