Copying to a post from an excel file

hi just a quick question.
when I copy something from an excel file into a post on vb
it goes into a box in the comment box.
the only way around this I found is to copy what I have into the url and then recopy it and past it.
is there anyway of stopping this happening. I will add some pic in a mo to explain the situation

Try selecting the text in the excel cell and copy the selected text. I don't have excel to test it but it appears you may just be copying the cell which has formatting copied with it.

While in the editor, right click and choose "Paste as plain text" option or something similar.
