Why isn't ctrl + C working within Excel spreadsheets?



I am currently working with RPA Express and I have noted that I cannot copy and paste cells. I can perform the action if I program clicks (i.e. click edit -> click copy etc.) but not if I use hotkeys (ctrl + C).

Is this meant to happen or is this a bug?



Hello, John,

You can try to follow the steps described in this article: https://kb.workfusion.com/display/RPAe/Keyboard
There is a section about Key Combinations.

Please do not hesitate to contact us again if you have any other questions.

Thank you.

The issue seemed to be that I had to ‘click’ on the spreadsheet somewhere first before using hotkeys. This might be something to look into.


To avoid clicks you can use
Keystroke left
Keystroke right
(Or up and down)
To get the cell activated. Then CTRL-C will work
