When you attempt to copy and paste a selection into the New Row in a list object, you receive the following error message:
When you clear this message, Excel may display the following alert:
The selected cells on the worksheet are conflicting with the List Manager.
This behavior occurs under the following conditions:
Microsoft Excel cannot paste the data.
If the selection that you want to paste requires the list to grow, the operation succeeds with an internal (marquee selection) paste operation, but not with an external paste operation from the Mac OS Clipboard.
To work around this behavior, use the sizing handle on the bottom right corner of the list object to expand the list to accommodate the Copy area, and then paste the selection into the New Row.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
