2990522 - Unable to copy text from a table when in Explorer mode in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


Copy/Paste to an external application doesn't work when in Explorer mode on a table.  Specifically, if you enter explorer mode on a table, you can highlight text and try to copy/paste, but it will not work.  Copy/Paste does work outside of explorer mode though (To an excel spreadsheet for example)


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2020.22.0

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create new Story
  2. Add table
  3. Enable Explorer mode on that table
  4. Highlight some of the data in the table - press ctrl-C to copy, then use ctrl-V to paste it into an excel spreadsheet
  5. Click ... on the table and "Open Explorer".
  6. Try to copy content into excel. Note that *something* is copied into the clipboard - but whatever it is - it isn't compatible with excel.
