Clipboard error in Excel

My bot uses a lot of the clipboard and it clears the clipboard at regular intervals during its operation.

I receive this pop-up error at random times during any copy-paste operation involving the clipboard.
“We couldn’t free up space on the Clipboard. Another program might be using it right now”.

This error causes the bot to fail. Is there any solution for this?

Hi @tinwy it looks like it might be an Excel issue.
Check out these discussions on MS forums.

Hope it helps!

Ah, trying to find out what other software that is incompatible with excel is going to be fun. The next best workaround is just to restart the bot recording when this happens.

Thanks, @ashapkina :slight_smile:
