93INTERNET EXPLORER version 7.0 & NEXT GEN This is a workaround for a known occurrence between IE v.7.0 and NEXT GEN’s FarPoint Spread software.Microsoft is presently working to correct this and will be releasing a patch to automatically perform this workaround.Until the patch’s release here are the manual steps to the workaround: Current State of IE v.7.0Internet Explorer 7 opens a message box asking if you want to access the clipboard whenever you click a cell in FarPoint Spread between page refreshes, it appears like this.It defaults to “Don’t Allow” which could make copy paste operations impossible.
94The Fix From the file menu bar, click on Tools\Internet Options (If the menu bar isn’t showing on your screen, press the Alt key and the menu bar will appear.)
97Scroll down to the Scripting section, located almost at the bottom of the security settings list. In the Allow Programmatic clipboard access section, change the selection from Prompt to Enable and click OK.
