  • copy in windows and paste in QBasic

    Hi, quickbasic guys
    Is there a way to copy from inside a doc or excel file and paste inside a quickbasic 7.1 program (as lines of code)?
    I'm preparing a thousand-line database imbedded in the program (which I can get from the net) and I'm trying to avoid typing the whole stuff line by line.
    Thanks

    I believe you can press shift+insert or something..

      Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
      A word and excel tables always returned a "division by zero" error message.
      Other times, even a normal .txt document gave me a division by zero error message, I couldn't figure why.
      I had to work on a table in excel, get it back to doc, do some cleaning that lost some numerical data, then convert it to .txt with line breaks, and, finally the copy-paste worked. Then I had to do a lot of typing inside quickbasic to fill up back the data I had removed.
      Does anyone have an idea why the "division by zero" error?
      Thanks
