Copy

I am trying to copy names and addresses from a web page to copy them in a Word doc, (Windows 7). All i get is a circle rotating on the blank doc. I click the 'W' font and a box appears. It asks if I want to close the programme. I click yes and a bar appears saying it is searching for faults then closes.
Any ideas pse?

Please explain how exactly have you tried to copy.

Is the web page on your computer or online?

As livix says?

If I want to perform that function, I outline the item on the web page, right click and select "Copy". Go to the Word doc, right click and paste.

I assume the web page is online.
To davehc:
That is what I've been doing - to no avail.

Have you tried to open the web page with a different web browser?
what web browser did you use when you tried to copy?

It's also possible that there is a lot of CSS/JS etc behind the scenes you are also copying. Copying from web pages will always grab any code / formatting with it.

You can copy the text into a text file and it won't keep any of the formatting, then copy and paste to the word doc.

And yet another:

I have found that, occasionally, since a Windows update of a while ago, that the copy paste is erratic. On another day, it works 100%

What does work though, is to outline the subject and drag it, with the LEFT mouse button, to where I want it - no paste required.
