One of our users has picked up on a wierd problem that I can't find any
information about anywhere. He has an Excel 2003 spreadsheet open in Terminal
Servies (2003 Server) that has some cells containing in excess of 400
characters. When he copies some or all of the contents of this spreadsheet
and pastes it into Excel on his local desktop, these cells are truncated to
I have tested this on Windows 2000 and 2003 Servers via MS Terminal Servies
and via Citrix Metaframe 4 and got the same results as our user (so I assume
that rdpclip is responsible for clipboard redirection in both MS TS and
Citrix MF4 environments). It is also worth noting that the cells were
truncated when I tried copying and pasting similar Excel data from my local
desktop to TS desktop.
Is this a limitation of Terminal Services clipboard redirection, or is it
just a case of changing a registry setting somewhere? If this is a known
limitation, I am open to any workarounds that people may be able to come up
Thanks in advance...
