Error description

  • This issue was logged under ICC 330962 and we informed the
    customer that this should have been fixed in TM1 9.1 .  They
    have now gotten back to us saying that this problem is still
    persistent in TM1 9.1 SP4.  I have tested this in TM1 9.1 SP4
    and 9.4 and I have been able to reproduce.  Reproduction steps:
    1. Open Excel without the TM1 add-in 2. Copy the value from a
    cell and paste it into a different cell; you will see that you
    can do the Paste as many times you want. 3. Close Excel. 4.
    Reopen Excel with the TM1 add-in enabled. 5. Copy the value of
    any cell and paste it into a different cell. You will now see
    that once this single paste have been done the paste option is
    greyed out and you can not do another paste.
