I have been trying to copy and past into MS works word processor. but I get a message that says "the information you copied exceeds the size limit for pasting into the word processor. Please try reducing the size of your selection.

What does that mean. I've never had a problem copying and pasting before. But it was on a different computer. This computer is less then a year old and runs windows vista. Do you have any idea what is wrong here and how do I fix it?

First of all, where are you copy/pasting from?
That seems to make a difference
It's been a very long time since I've used Works
