Suggestions for a better solution..

Recommended Posts

I need to copy a word from an e-mail in Outlook 2010 and paste it into a textbox/field in another program.
Problem: The program I'm trying to copy the information into doesn't allow information to be pasted (ctrl+v), only manually entered.
My (tidious) idea for a solution:

;so first I copy the first letter of the word in the e-mail that i need and then I run something like this below
If clipget() = "a" then
elseif clipget()= "b" then
elseif clipget()= "c" then
elseif clipget()="d" then

and basically continue with every letter in the alphabet until I've written the whole word.

This can't possibly be the best solution for this?

Thanks in advance.

You may be able to retrieve the e-mail using the Outlook UDF.

Concerning the destination app, there must be a more reliable way to paste the data.

Have you tried with the Control* functions? Especially the ControlSetText one?

Br, FireFox.

Wow cudos for fast reply, I was actually just about to delete this thread since things just worked themselves out. Turns out it worked by sending "clipget()" rather than just sending "ctrl+v".

I will definitely check out the Outlook UDF anyway!

Thanks and have a nice one!
