I have Vista and MS Works. I can't copy a chart or table from a web page into a ms works document. The info is copied but disarrayed and not in any organized form. I've tried copy, paste and copy, paste special. Any ideas from anyone?

Have you tried pasting it into WordPad instead?

The web page info...is .html, if the charts/tables are embedded.

Unless you have a program that converts a Web document into something MS will accept...I think that's your problem.

The other option is to do a screen capture of the chart or graph and edit it as a .gif or .jpg and insert those in your document. However that being said, be cautious regarding using copyrighted information in your documents without attribution.
