Copy and paste results

I'm using rapidminer version 5.2.008 for generating word frequency lists. I need to copy the results/lists in excel. I select a column and then use the command "copy" (from edit menu as well as shortcut) and "paste" it into excel. Surprisingly, sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. I wonder why it does not work often.

Any explanation or help will be highly appreciated.

Best regards,

    Hi Shafiq, I could not reproduce the problem, for me it works all the time. Which operating system are you using? Can you remember a situation where this fails regularly and reproducible?
    However, why not simply use the Write Excel operator? Please see the attached process for an example.

    Best, Marius
