Hi Larry,

First off, if you haven't tried already, please save your work and attempt restarting your computer through Windows (Start -> shut down -> restart). This will allow your clipboard to be erased and may allow you to copy and paste immediately after boot up.

Make sure you do not have any keys stuck on your keyboard especially the Alt or Ctrl keys.

If the issue is still occurring after the reboot, please attempt to copy and paste some date into a notepad or wordpad through Windows. This will help determine if you are having a Windows issue or an issue with the spreadsheet application.
