For the last 10 days or so, when working with Trados in Word, I've repeatedly been getting this Microsoft Visual Basic message:

Run-time error '-2147221038 (800401d2)':
DataObject: PutInClipboard SetClipboard fehlgeschlagen

(I've inserted a space in line 2 between the ':' and the 'P' so as to avoid getting a smiley!)

I have to click on 'End' and then I can continue working, but it's really happening quite often and it's getting on my nerves. The buttons 'Continue' and 'Debug' in this message are greyed out, and clicking on 'Help' only gives an empty Help window.
This sometimes happens when I copy the source text into the target segment, and sometimes when Trados automatically inserts a 100% match. Also sometimes when I close and save a segment and open the next one with no automatic insertion. And sometimes when I close without saving. Maybe other occasions too, I'm not quite sure. (I'm adding these one by one right now as they pop up).

I'm using Microsoft Office Word 2003 (11.8227.8202) SP3 and Trados 8.2.0.835 (Build 835).

I'm not aware of having changed anything when this started, but who knows?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

TOPIC STARTER
äh... May 13, 2010

Ehrlich gesagt, weiß ich gerade nicht mehr genau... Ich hatte das Problem schon länger nicht mehr, habe aber inzwischen upgegraded. Ich glaube, wenn es zu sehr genervt hat, hab ich Word neu gestartet. Oder eine Weile in TagEditor gearbeitet. Alles eher unbefriedigend...
Falls mir doch noch was einfällt, meld ich mich!
