    This is weird and forgive me if I use wrong terminology, but will appreciate any help. (And I'm not a techie, so please answer simply as you might to one who had never used a computer!)

    Problem seems to be connected to Java chats only. When I copy&paste from Java chats to a text document (can be .txt, .rtf or .doc), only the first one or two copies are successfully pasted. After that, the cut&paste buffer won't take in anything new, so it only keep repasting the last text copied.

    Running Windows XP with MSWord 2000 (from Microsoft Works) ... the Java is J2SE 5.11. Don't want to update the Java if at all possible not to because it messes up other functions within the chat sites.

    I'm stymied. Does anyone have a clue how this can be fixed? :confused:

    TIA,

    I am not sure, but I think Java uses its own clipboard, not the regular one used for most MS software. I have read some documentation on how to get this to transfer to the regular clipboard, but, frankly, it was not for beginners - was aimed more at Java developers.
    If I am wrong, that would be great - I hope WAJ0606 has a cure for you. Please let us know how it turns out.

    Thank you WAJ0606 ... that does the trick! It's not ideal, because the situation still recurs, but at least there's a cure!

    And slurpee55, I appreciate the insider information -- I don't think I'll be able to figure out how to apply it, but it's nice to know.

    Bunches of thanks to all. (y)
