Error when copying data from Excel web app into Excel 2013

I tried to copy data from the Excel Web App to my desktop Excel 2013. It wasn't a lot of data - 3 columns (of which 2 were mostly blank) x 140 rows. On pasting into Excel, the cell displayed the message, "Retrieving data. Wait a few seconds and try to cut or copy again."

Waiting and then pressing Ctrl-V produced the same result. I tried using Paste Special > Text, but that didn't work either. Any thoughts on a possible solution? Thanks.

I found a work around that may work for you. Select [File] [Save As] and then [Download a Copy]. Save to you computer and open with a Desktop version of Excel so you can cut and paste freely.
