We have a problem in Excel on just one machine - all the others

Customer Question
work correctly. The problem...
We have a problem in Excel on just one machine - all the others work correctly. The problem arises when trying to copy and paste/special paste from one workbook to another. Copying within the same workbook is no problem, it works. The problem is only encountered when attempting to do this into another workbook. We can also not copy a tab into another workbook
