Hi Mahbub,

If you are copying the object from the SPSS Navigator, and in Excel you are pasting with Edit > Paste, then neither application is misbehaving. However, you still don't get the results you desire. To get Excel to paste properly, use Edit > Paste Special > Text.. and this ought to work.

>>> Mahbub Khandoker <> 04/07/05 12:25 PM >>> Most often I use the spss output in excel. But when I paste the output in excel the percentages are become number. So I have to format the number into percentage in excel. I don't know whether it is an excel problem or not. Is there any way in spss by which the percentages are remaining as percentages when pasted in excel? Or is it an excel matter? Thanks for your time. Mahbub
