    Does anyone know a quick and easy way to copy the results of a Summary Function into Word in a readable format? I don’t remember seeing this in the modules and have spent too much time on this for something that should be a basic copy and paste.

    Thanks.

    Hi Joseph,

    Great catch.  This is a major issue if the exam expects candidates to be able to do this quickly and it takes them longer.  I just sent an email to the SOA’s exam committee to notify them of this.  In earlier versions of Word, it would paste copied text using the same formatting as RStudio but in the latest version of Word it is no longer preserving the column widths.  I will reply here when they respond.  They usually reply within 2-3 business days.

    Version Information:

    Word version 2104

    Rstudio version 1.4.1106

    Enroll in our online course!  This exam is only a speed bump on your way to an ASA.  Learn concepts and strategies to pass.  We have 10 practice exams so that you can test your knowledge under exam conditions.  Compare good answers to great answers with over 33 hours of tutorials.  Reduce your study time by using 200 flashcards and 14 pages of cheat sheets to digest the critical info needed to pass.

    Good news – you’ll be able to copy and paste on the Prometric computers because they have an older version of the software.  The syllabus says

    The Prometric computers will have the 2016 versions of Microsoft Word and Excel, version 3.6.3 of R, and
    version 1.1.463 of RStudio.

    As a fix, just take screenshots using WINDOWS + SHFT + S and then copy into Word while you are practicing.  On your real exam, you will be able to copy the text.

    Also, I noticed if you paste the results into excel and change the font to Consolas, then copy that and paste it as an image into Word it looks pretty good.
