  • Hi,

    You can just copy the data, then open the google search, right click in any blank area and choose Search using copied text, then the copied data will display horizontally in the search box.

    Hope this helps,

  • Hi,

    I also test myself in the Google Chrome, it did an issue like you descripted.

    But if you copy in IE, there is a function called: ”Search using copied text”.

    Just select any text on any webpage and then click CTRL +C and then hit the CTRL+SHIFT+L keys to search the copied text in your search engine. If you have copied a web address, you can easily open the site using the keyboard shortcut.

    we can also paste the vertical URL into horizontally in the address bar. Like:

    http://bl

    ogs.msdn.

    com/ie

  • Thanks but not quite what im loking for. I want to take vertical data from excel or notepad and be able to copy that horizontally into fileds. e.g. in SQL SSRS reports or even google search as an example..  I don't understand how this works in chrome and not IE this I would think this would be so trivial but I cant find anyway to do this
