Summary

Random characters appear when pasting data from Outlook 2003 Contacts

Description of the issue

When I copy and paste a phone number from an Outlook 2003 contact, into any text field in FileMaker Pro 9, I get the following result:  (608) 356-1700____巔߲崠߲_嵆߲׵Ѵ ?_?__ᷣCCCPEXCH2.cccp.comBroadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet for hp - Packet Scheduler MiniportDefault Outlook Profile—˜_,:ɓȨ_Ȩ_¡¢£¤¥¦§¨©ª«¬®¯°±²³´µ¶·¸¹º»¼½¾¿ÀÁÂÃÄÅÆÇÈÉÊËÌÍÎÏÐÑÒÓÔÕÖ×ØÙÚÛÜÝÞßàáâãäåæçèéêë If I paste the same data into any other program, all I get is the phone number (608) 356-1700. Other information from the the contact, such as name, email address, and so on copy and paste into FileMaker just fine. Has anyone seen this?
