Ups, sorry, i forgot the details:
What I want to do is:
1) select and copy a list of task names from an excel template (standard plain text, no formulas) and
2) paste it to MS Project “Task Name” column including the formatting.

The problem:
Standard pasting by using the shortcut (Ctrl-V) does not work at all; will just leave the “Task Name” column empty, no error message.

What does works is:
Copy in XLS -> MS Project: Insert -> Paste “Data as Text” (Sorry, I don’t know if this is the correct english term. “Textdaten” in german). But when I do this I lose the formatting, which, in this case, would be important to keep.
The Inserting Popup offers only two options: as Bitmap or Data as Text.

Any ideas?
