Why table is not being copied in excel

Specs: Windows 7
Table is not being copied in excel but text copy well. When i make data base in excel and make all border then i select the table. when I try to copy the selected table then excel do not respond to copy command. In usual case there seems a blinking chain around selected area when we give copy command but in my case that blinking lining do not appear. If after that i try to paste in to word only text can be pasted like a text paragraph, but not the table.

Did you try "Edit > Paste Special..."?

Yes this "Paste Special" is done when selection cell is copied but in my case when i select the cells to be copied and try to copy then the blinking sign around the selection cells. some times it is copied just for one second and it disappears suddenly before copy. Is it due to some virus problem or setting problem?? Thank You for your kind response

When you "paste special" you will get several choices for how you want to paste it. Have you tried the alternatives? One of them should get you what you want. If not, you could create another workbook from just the cells you want in your other document and insert a link to it in that document.

There have been reports of Skype interfering with MS Office
So if you have Skype installed, try uninstalling it and see if that helps.
