    The Spike (Word 2003/sp2)

    So does anyone still use the Spike function in Word?

    I don't - the multiple item Office clipboard in Word 2000 and higher is much more flexible (and I don't use that a lot either...)

    I personally don't but I suggested it a couple of weeks ago for someone here who wanted to copy stuff to the clipboard twice and then insert both of these contents in turn. For that purpose, I thought Spike would be a good fit - see <post:=653,893>post 653,893</post:>

    The other place that Spike is useful is if you want to concatenate several clippings together - for instance, say you want to scroll through a document and collect bits and pieces and then paste them all into one location. This doesn't lend itself to coding particularly well since the user interaction required would be problematic to deal with.
