How can I send a variable to the clipboard ? by Chance1234
Posted: 19 Jul 07

Firstly you will need to set a reference to the Microsoft forms 2.0 collection.

Insert a new module and copy / paste the following


Sub subCopyPasteVariableToClipboard()
Dim do_Mydata As DataObject 'set reference to the data object ,part of microsoft forms 2.0
Dim str_test As String ' string for testing

Set do_Mydata = New DataObject

str_test = "This should be sent to the clipboard"

    With do_Mydata
        .SetText str_test
    End With

End Sub

Run the code, open up notepad and press CTRL + V

"This should be sent to the clipboard" should appear.
