Abstract: A method for moving data between sessions on a workstation having a video display. A source session having data in protected and unprotected fields is copied to storage through a clipboard media. Pasting of data from the clipboard into unprotected fields of a destination session is accomplished selectively. Pasting is selectively concluded based upon a comparison of source protected fields with corresponding destination protected fields, where the workstation operator is notified of mismatches and responds accordingly.
