I switched from IE to Chrome. Now I cannot use the cut & paste feature to move data from Excel to my app in Grid Edit. I can do this when opening QB in IE but not when opening QB in Chrome. I searched the Chrome forums for an answer and it appears many people are having problems with Chrome and C&P. Do we have a work around for QB?

That is a known issue with QuickBase for now QBE006166: Chrome Issue: Can't paste from Excel into Grid Edit. If you'll watch for this to be addressed in a future release here: http://quickbase.intuit.com/developer/category/knowledge-base-categories/general/release-notes you'll be able to see when this is corrected.

This appears to still be an issue - if the bug was logged 2+ yrs ago, is it being addressed?

We investigated this situation and determined that it's an issue caused by Microsoft, and therefore not something we can address within QuickBase. Because of this it's broken in Google Chrome but works correctly in Internet Explorer.

Microsoft caused an issue in Google Chrome? How does that work?

Microsoft updated Excel so it no longer can copy into the Google Chrome browser

Got it. I went back to IE anyway and my company upgraded us to Excel 2013. Cut & Paste is working and that is all I cared about. I still use Chrome for some online applications because it seems to be faster, but I stuck with IE for all QuickBase work.

Can one cut & paste from Google Sheets into Quick Base using Chrome?
