Is there a posibility to use copy and paste in matrix and tables, insteade of inputting the data manually specilally if we have a big number of inputs!!!!!!

I was waiting for you to provide more information on what you are trying to do, but since you haven't here's my suggestion. If you have data in Excel, then your can copy the matrix as if you were going to paste it somewhere in Excel. Then, in Mathcad, create the matrix name, ; e.g. X:= and paste (cntr-V) in the cursor where a value or formula would be input. The matrix is created.

What's wrong with calling Excel data from Mathcad?

You've never said in what the program that the data you want to copy is produced. Regardless, I would try the control-c in the table in that program and control-v in Mathcad as I explained with Excel as the source. It may work.

Hello, Harvey, I am trying to do a simple copy and paste from Excel to Prime 2.0. When I hit Ctrl-V or Paste on the menu, nothing is printed. If I paste 1 value it works fine, but I need to copy a 1x440 matrix. Is it Prime 2.0 that is the problem? Thank you!

In Mathcad 15 you would have to type M: and then Ctrl-V and you assign the variable M a Matrix that way.

In Prime2 this does not work that way.

In Prime2 simply click on an empty space and type ctrl-V. One of those new tables is inserted and you have to fill in the headers. Unfortunately you don't get a normal matrix that way.
