SAS EG 7.1 clipboard erros

Hi Team

We are recently migrated from SAS EG 4.1 to SAs EG 7.1.

I am facing below issues. Request you ot kindly advice.

#1. I have an issue in copying and pasting program. Error says:

  OpenClipboard failed (Exception from HRESULT:0x800401D0

  CLIPBRD_E_CANT_OPEN ))

#2. Trying to copy & paste the RESULTS from RESULTS VIEWER generated (from PROC FREQ/ PROC TABULATE) to an Excel sheet. After copying the data values are get copied properly onto excel sheet. The values does not get into the cell of an excel sheet.

#3. While using the SEND TO EXCEL option in EG, the excel sheet gets generated for the first time. But if I use this option again, my system is getting crahed and I had to restart the system.

Kindly advice.

Thanks

Re: SAS EG 7.1 clipboard erros

For question number 2, the difference might be due to the use of SAS Report instead of HTML as the default output result.  You can use Tools->Options, Results to change the default output destination to HTML, and see if that helps.  (Actually, I would expect SAS Report to perform better when you copy/paste results, but this is something you can try.  PROC FREQ and TABULATE both have non-standard table layouts that can be tricky.)

For the other problems, I suggest tracking these with SAS Technical Support.  They sound like a problem with the environment.  Are you running SAS Enterprise Guide in Citrix or remote desktop?  These can sometimes cause clipboard issues, and sometimes adjusting the client settings for these applications can help.

Re: SAS EG 7.1 clipboard erros

My department also recently migrated from SAS EG 5.1 to 7.1. We are running 32 and 64 bit versions of EG from local PCs (64 bit OS) connecting remotely to SAS on a Windows 2008 R2 server via Integrated Windows Authentication.

 

We are constantly experiencing the same issue as the original poster. When attempting to copy and paste code we get the following error:

 

Error: OpenClipboard failed (Exception from HRESULT:0x800401D0

  CLIPBRD_E_CANT_OPEN ))

 

I am currently working with SAS tech support but i am wondering if you've found a solution to your issue.

 

Thanks,

Re: SAS EG 7.1 clipboard erros

Hi,

I'm able to replicate this error when using Enterprise Guide 7.1 / 7.11 while also using Notepad++. Not sure if this is a problem of collision with the "MultiClipboard" extension of Notepad++, but when I close Notepad++ I can copy/paste as expected without error messages.

Regards,
