is it possible to ctrl-a (to select all), then paste everything into another program (eg notepad or better

also, what is your program? - it may help us suggest solutions.
Unfortunately, I cannot even ctrl-a to select all. Even if I could i think that way would take longer, for what I am trying to do.
It is a program specifically engineered for what we do at work.
Essentially there are 1000's of columns and rows, and I need to find certain columns and/or rows. Sometimes it takes 5-10 minutes just to locate, I am trying to get this down to 1-5 secs (if I had a search within a window, function).
I saw an Apple (ick) program that allowed to search within an actual window itself. Unfortunately I cannot find a similar program for Windows.
Thanks for your reply and any following thoughts/ideas.
