Unable to Paste Data into SharePoint in Quick-Edit

This has been working for me before and only today did I come up with this issue. Unsure whether it is a bug or not.

I have data exported in excel (just numbers, in "general" form however I have tried changing it to "number" form and "text" form, and this still did not make a difference). I copy a column containing 10 rows, each cell with a number. On the SharePoint list, I go “quick edit”, select my new blank (directly under the old data on the list) and go: CTRL-V to paste in data.

However, nothing happens. No red sign (or green star) appears. I can still type in the data manually, but it is not letting me paste in (as I said, nothing happens)

Any thoughts? Has this happened to you before?

 

Many thanks

Re: Unable to Paste Data into SharePoint in Quick-Edit

Hi @J_Hazel,

 

By Quick Edit, if you mean the below button, then this quick edit actually is SharePoint site feature, this has nothing to do with PowerApps SharePoint Form:

Besides, I just tested to copy one column with numbers from Excel table to SharePoint number column, all numbers are copied and pasted succesfully. Please try now.
