Accessing Office 2003 clipboard

2 posts in this topic

Hi forum:

Just like everyone else trying to control a MS product, I am having problem with automation of their non-standard menu items. I want to clear the office clipboard (Office 2003, Excel is running), but I can't seem to get a handle on the non-standard window "Clipboard"'s "Clear All" button. The clipboard is part of the Task Pane. I've got a VBA way of doing it, but that takes up a whole module since you have to (so I'm told) search through toolbar items to find the right one to activate (its designation can change). I am hoping to replace this with a simple, small amount of AutoIT code in the AutoIT exe I have running at the same time.

Of course "AutoIt Window Info" cannot recognize the "Clear All" button.

Any one been there, done that?

Regards

Larry
