Hi Roberta,

Sorry to hear this is happening. The problem could be that the code never got copied initially? Can you try copying the code again, by highlighting the code, right click on your mouse and click "copy". You can also right click with your mouse and click on "select all", then click on "copy".
If this does not work please let me know.

Well, I solved the problem and I'm so happy!

In the process of using one browser to copy, and then switching to another to paste, I "lost" the copy so it wasn't available when I went to paste it.

I emailed the code to myself and then used it from there. It worked.

Thank you so much for your help!

I wonder why the browsers wont let you copy from one and paste in another! Maybe its that its not getting copied to the computer clipboard, it is getting copied to the browser's clip board instead somehow.

Hi, if you are pasting in IE or copying, it does not work. Please use the following:

To copy: Ctrl + C

To paste: Ctrl + V

I hope this works and helps! :)
