Public Property AllowExcelFormat As DefaultBoolean

Property Value

Type Default Description


A value that specifies whether copying data in XLS (Biff8) format is enabled. The Default value is equivalent to DefaultBoolean.True.


The AllowExcelFormat option is in effect if the ClipboardOptions.ClipboardMode property is set to Formatted. See Clipboard - Copy and Paste Operations. Data Formatting to learn more.


Due to Excel limitations, it is impossible to paste formatted data when copying from more than 65,653 cells. Instead, copied data will be pasted as an RTF or, if this option is disabled, as simple plain text.
