If you get a message indicating No clipboard access when you attempt to copy or paste, it is likely that your browser is blocking sites from accessing the clipboard, also known as Cut-Copy-Paste (CCP) functionality. 

You can change your browser settings to allow global clipboard access for all sites or to just allow site-specific access for Office.com applications.

  1. Open Chrome browser Settings.

  2. Select Security & Privacy > Site Settings > Permissions > Clipboard.

  3. Select Allow
