Errors made when copying and pasting in Word, Excel, Power Point or other computer programs.

Pronunced: Cop-paste-ian
A copastian error occurs when formulas are copied and pasted but pull from the wrong cells within a spreadsheet. They can also occur in programs like word processing programs or presentation software when few words are copied and pasted into an existing sentence creating a grammatically incorrect structure. Occasionally when things are copied and pasted on many pages, the pasted items end up on pages where they should not be. There are many copastian errors that occur and usually can be avoided with careful proof reading and editing.
