I recently udated my Office from Office 2004 to Office for Mac 2011. Now, I can no longer paste an excel document into my web page as I have been able to do. Does anyone know if this is an Office problem, Dreamweaver or if there is a fix for it. I really need to be able to do this.
First, you only have until 12/31 to upgrade to CS6. Then you either have to purchase a new license of CS6 at full price or go to "the cloud".
Second, copy and paste was never reliable on Windows or Mac from Excel to DW. The most reliable, and recommended, method was to save the data to CSV and File->Import->Tabular Data (CSV). That's because you only want to import data from Excel because MS Office does not write HTML well or style well, that's where DW comes in.
I don't have CS3 on a Mac to test, but I've just tested copying and pasting from Excel 2011 for Mac into Dreamweaver CS6 without problem. But as SnakEyez02 says, the HTML created by pasting Excel isn't the best. Using Import > Tabular Data is better.
It's been working fine before. Not the best looking but we had tried all kinds of exporting/importing to make it work a couple of years ago. We hope to make changes in the coming months but for now, I'm just trying to figure out why it doesn't work. One thing. I recently had to switch to a new account on my Mac. Would there be something in Dreamweaver that has changed to prevent the pasting. I should clarify that the paste special windows comes up, I hit paste and it appears to want to do it but nothing actually shows up.

If you're running Dreamweaver in the same account as you log in with, Dreamweaver should work normally.
However, if you created the site with your previous account, it's quite possible that the Mac file permissions are preventing Dreamweaver from pasting into the page. In the Mac Finder, select the folder that contains the site, and press Cmd+I to bring up the Get Info panel. Check the permissions. It's quite likely that you need to change the permission for your new account to read and write the folder and its contents.
I was supposed to have CS5 installed several months ago, but my IT guy is so busy that he hasn't done it and won't let me do it. I understand what you mean about the copy and paste but it's just what we had to do to get the formatting to work for the schedule. It has always worked until now. One thing. I did have to create a new account on my Mac. Is there a possibility that the function was lost or that I have to do something in Dreamweaver to make it work. By the way, I can copy and paste from a file in excel saved as a web page. But the formatting is completely lost.
I am. The strange thing is that I have Dreamweaver CS5 on my MacBook Air and Excel 2011. I downloaded the same excel file. Copied it and was able to paste it into a "new" dreamweaver page. Not the page I needed to for our Web site, however.

Then it's almost certainly a problem with the permissions on the page that you're trying to paste into.
Thank you. I've been having problems with permissions since we had to move to a new network and I had to create a new account name. I'm trying to repair permissions now.
