To couronette question.
I have never had that to happen to me, so not sure what exactly might be
occurring here which is very strange.
My Word 2k program is set to save the document every 5min. When the DOC is
opened there's the backup in the document folder.
Another way is to simply hit the save button which normally puts it into
your Document folder unless you manually changed it by the Word program
To Eskimosound below on his/her question..
Right click and paste usually dumps the info or CTRL key and V key will
BUT,, once you copy something .. then copy something else.. that first copy
is gone in clipboard..
