TOPIC: Be Careful Copying From Word

Be Careful Copying From Word 11 years 9 months ago #364

I updated some of my docs "edit docs" in my template. I used word and then copy and pasted them into a new doc under "edit docs". When I went to create a new report the docs that I created were not in my new report! I am glad I had saved them first otherwise I would have had to start 5 docs all over again... I called Dominic and he said this has been happening lately. He suggested to not copy and paste from word but to copy and paste from notepad. This worked and I was able to get all my docs back in order. 

I just wanted to warn everyone so you don't have to go through what I went through and save your self all the trouble and about 3 hours work...He explained to me that he will be looking for a new HIP word program because the current one has some concerns. He is just busy now with the websites.

Just be careful with the docs...

Hi Mark,

Thanks for posting the info. I have heard a few people mention the issue, Bob Elliot was another. The problem is that MS Word actually copies a bunch of its own internal codes when you copy/paste. When you use notepad it strips it all.

I just had a thought. Mark can you try saving your word file as a txt file rather than a doc and see if that will allow you to copy from word? That should tell word to not use the extra code.

It got me on the contract as well, but Dominic spent about 2 hrs tracking it down for me. He has been super heloing with this. I am ready to see the web sites, and web hosting products!

Hey Guys,

Did either of you try saving the doc as a text (txt) file yet? I'm curious if this works for you. I don't have the latest version of office to test on (I use OpenOffice).

Not yet, I had an inspection today and just finished the report. I will give it a try,it's just very scary as I don't want to mess up my docs template again.

Just create a new doc and test it on that doc only. Trying one doc won't mess up all your other ones. I'm going to rename this thread so people know what it's about and can find it easier.
