Description Jens Behrens 2004-11-15 11:20:27 UTC
I encountered a problem, when writing a chenged Excel-Sheet and then opening it 
again, for doing manually (or via macro) copy and paste. If I press Ctrl-C 
Excel is crashing with an application exception (if i delete the macro, the 
error also appears!). We are using the german version of Excel 2000. I tested 
it with 2.5.1 and 2.0-RC1 versions of POI.

It's not clear that there is anything wrong with attachment (id=13458).  It seems to work OK in my Excel (2007).  The instructions are too vague. Ctrl-c worked (on whatever was initially selected.  Copy paste seemed to work with every sheet.  I couldn't find 'the macro' to delete.  There was a little bit of VBA code, but nothing was obviously 'the macro'.

There is a high chance that whatever bug you originally observed has been fixed between 2.5 and 3.1.
