paste information into an email

I want to paste information into an already open email from office 2007.
I am not replying to an email but have opened a new email to send. I will send it manually. I can copy information from the extra screen but cannot paste it into an email, an already open email.
How do i take control of an open email and paste to it?

Thank you in advance

RE: paste information into an email

This opens a new mail, not sure how to take control of an allready open mail.


On Error GoTo SendMail_Err
NL = Chr (13) + Chr (10)

Set oOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set oMailItem = oOutlook.CreateItem(olMailItem)

With oMailItem
    .Display 'Show it, don't know why it returns error, but it is handled in Sendmail_Err and does display the screen.
    .To = mailAdress
    .Subject = subjectName
    .Body = "Info" + NL + .Body
    If File <> "" Then
        .Attachments.Add File
    End if
    .Send 'Send the mail
End With
    'Tidy Up
    Set oOutlook = Nothing
    Set oMailItem = Nothing
Exit Sub

If Err = 438 Then
    Resume Next
End If
MsgBox "Error occured."
End Sub
