Pasting to email

by johnblroberts / March 20, 2006 5:23 AM PST

I use BTYahoo email and having tried send an excel spreadsheet as an attachment to an organisation I they tell me they cannot open the attachment. Private receivers have no problem. I then attempted to copy and paste the document to the text of the email, again they say not able to open. I did test this by sending to myself and was able to open even though the document had not retained the formatting it was sent in being spread all over the page. There must be a way of including a document as part of an email so that it arrives in the same condition it leaves me. But what is it??
Mny thanks to anyone. If this subject has been covered in Computeractive please refer me to the issue number

When you save

When you save your Excel product, are you saving it as a .xsl product?

I had that problem at work and have to save them as .xls not .xlt


Hope this helps.

Thanks for your reply. I had been saving as .xlr now having saved as xls got the attachment through as sent when sending to myself. I await confirmation that my business recipient receives and opens OK. I did find a help file in 'Works' on sending a Works in the body of an email using 'tools'then 'options' then 'general' tick 'text in message body' click 'OK' then 'send'. I then got the message to check my hard disc for space. There is plenty so I clicked on OK but nothing then happened. The promised 'choose profile' box did not appear. They provide a tip 'you may also send a document as the body of a message by opening your email program and then moving or copying the information you want into the message'. That gets me back to my original query!

Glad you responded back

You can copy and paste many things, however it may not look the same.

I think it's better to send it as an attachment when doing business using forms.


Hope this helps

thanks for your reply and helpful answer to my problem. Using.xls also saves me from unplugging broadband and plugging in telephone extension to use fax.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
