    Default Microsoft Word 2003 copy and paste problem

    After copying and pasting without any problem, Word 2003 just began to put up an uneditable white box instead. Publisher doesn't have the problem and other programs don't seem to be affected. I can still insert from Word clip art without problem. I tried system restore but it didn't help and have cleared temp files, etc. Does any one know what the solution is?

    This is caused by the method of pasting you use. there are two ways. One is to embed the past and the other is to link back to the original file.
    Embedding means that there is a connection between word and the original file. Link means there is none.
    Have a read of the article here.
