    Clip Board

    I found by loading the clip board and then selecting edit delet this will clear the current clip board.
    Is there a faster way ? Is this something that could be done with windows script file ... ? which I know
    nothing about. I would like a quick way to clear the clipboard, some of my newer programs have the
    option under the edit command below copy .. Any suggestions or help out there <img src=/S/help.gif border=0 alt=help width=23 height=15> <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Under VB, and thus possibly VBA, there is a clipboard function, which takes a string as an argument, and puts the string on the clipboard.
    If this string is empty ("") then the clipboard is cleared.

    A macro with the single line:
    clipboard ""
    might do the trick.

    Install Clipboard viewer from your Win'98 disc. Then create a shortcut to the viewer. Then right click the shortcut. then click properties. Click the shortcut tab and create a shortcut key in conjunction with ctrl+alt.
    From then on all you have to do is hit ctrl+alt and the shortcut key and up comes clipboard viewer and click edit delete and the clipboard is cleared. It sounds complicated but it's quite simple.
    Good luck and let me know how you do.
