Are you using Office 2007? If so, that issue is discussed [URL="http://www.monarchforums.com/showthread.php?t=2321"]here[/URL] and url=http://www.monarchforums.com/showthread.php?p=2105#post2105here[/url].
I don't have Office 2007, but in Office 2003, the paste works correctly for me.
Hi Mike and welcome.
In addition to Nick's response it may be worth saying that although the Training Guide attempts (pretty well) to cover everything a broad church of users may wish to do, my advice would be to not get too hung up on any specific aspect unless it will be of prime importance to things you are likely to do. Even then if something does not quite gel for you, move on to the next subject and come back to the tricky one later.
For example I very very rarely use any cut and paste features and so I don't feel a need for any expertise in that area. However I do know that should that situation change I can quickly refresh my knowledge using the Training Guide or the built in Help files. Or indeed the Forum!
There are a number of things that I skipped over in my early days with Monarch (a long time ago now) in order to become practised as soon as possible. However I did manage to record in my memory that the features existed and that allowed me to jump back to them when it looked like they could be useful.
As I recall I went through 1 to 6 or so quite thoroughly but cherry picked stuff from the later lessons unless and until they became especially relevant. That said we all have our own ways of working so you should follow the strategy that works best for you.
