Default clipboard error freezes workbook


I have a new machine with fresh installs of win10 pro and office 2016. an old annoyance has survived the transition. in Excel, occasionally an error message pops up "there's a problem with the clipboard but you can still paste your content within this workbook." after this, the paste occurs but the workbook is then frozen, not responsive to keyboard or mouse inputs. other workbooks still respond normally. the only fix I've found so far is to restart Excel. this was occurring in the previous 2013 install on another machine. I ran a clear clipboard routine with no effect. this occurs when pasting between workbooks and within a workbook. any thoughts?

Does it occur when pasting between "old / existing" workbooks ? Or does it also occur when you are using newly created workbooks on the new system ? They were not already existing prior to the new install ?

If the new workbooks are affected, it must be something in the old workbooks you carried over to the new system. Code, corruption, etc.

the data/workbooks are pre-existing. is there a simple way to audit the files for errors?

RESTORE CORRUPT FILE

I would try these steps, in the order presented. Each has been used here many times. Sometimes they work,
sometimes they don't.


NOTE: ALWAYS USE THESE STEPS ON A COPY OF YOUR WORKBOOK, NOT THE ORIGINAL. If something
goes wrong you haven't lost the original.

My favorite first attempt is to use this free program. It's safe, I've used it many times when downloaded straight from the author :

If you're having a problem with an Excel file, save it as HTML (which is one of the file types in Excel), then save it back to .xls

They say that will often recover lost information, or restore a corrupt file.

Another way of restoring broken/corrupted Excel files

I've been quite lucky actually opening corrupted files in OpenOffice, saving them, and then re-opening them in Excel. Sometimes the formatting will be a little off, but the data is almost always recovered, as well as most of the formatting. Unfortunately, not all of the formula and charts are, but when it happened I was happy anything was salvaged at all. ================================================== ================================
