Hi, i cannot reproduce that here on Mac OS X and Excel 2016 (V 15.30). I executed your sample code in the messagebox and was able to paste successfully the clipboard to Excel. I even tried with alpha numeric values.
But what i noticed is the following: When i just click on a cell, so that it is selected without showing the blinking write cursor in the cell, then pasting is working w/o problems. When i double click a cell, so that it is selected and the blinking write cursor is shown, then i cannot paste it correctly. Tried with LC 8.19RC2 and LC9DP11. Will try on Windows later this day.
