Save Clipboard Content Or Not?

Nov 15, 2011

I have the following challenge: In VBA I copy from a file (and the copied area goes on the clipboard). The clipboard contents is then copied into another workbook and worksheet. Closing the file (close workbook) from where I have copied, I get the question: "do you want to save the clipboard contents, etc., etc, " ending with the buttons YES or NO to be pushed. How can I disable this question in VBA.

How To Clear Contents Of Clipboard Before Tool Takes Screen Print In Excel VBA

Apr 20, 2014

I've have a tool/code that takes the screen prints of the active window (when I press F9) and pastes it in a word document.

But whenever I do copy some text or any other image and when I press F9 to take the screen print of the active window. I get the text pasted into the word, this is because the clipboard content has text first and then the screen print of the active window.

Instead When I press F9, I wanted the below to happen

1. Content from the Clipboard should be cleared

2. Take the screen print

3. Paste it in the word document.

Note: My tool/code already does 2 and 3. Looking for 1 alone, ,

Copy Userform To Clipboard And Save As JPEG

Nov 24, 2009

I am on the final part of a visitor log and I am stumpped on how to finish it. I have a electronic signature pad (Interlink Electronics-ePad) that the controls will not allow me to use in VBA for excel, I can get the image and signature on my usersform but am unable to save just the image through any code.

All I have been able to come up with at this time is saving the userform and pasting it in the active worksheet (code for this I found here written by "Michel Pierron"). What I would like to be able to do is have the userform image cropped to where the "Image1" image is (Signature will be in it place when done, the OCX esign block will not show on upload) and then saved as "visitors name, date/time.JPEG" to a folder in my documents.

The attached file is a stripped down version of what i have so far with no checking involved, just trying to get the save part of this done. If all I can do is save the userform as a whole that would work also but would like to be able to change it to a jpeg for storage. Have tried to use epads SDK's to achieve a saved signature but haven't been able, was suppose to be on vacation this week but need to get this done before the 1st.

Copy Cell Contents To Different Worksheet On Save

Oct 28, 2008

I have an Excel invoice set up and working well. It does a bunch of things with macros - e.g. on save it increments the invoice number well as creates a jpeg screenshot for the invoice archives. I have added an additional worksheet (titled 'VAT') to the workbook. The new 'VAT' worksheet has five simple columns; Invoice no, Subtotal, VAT, M.O.T. and Total.

What I need:-
On saving the workbook I would like to add a macro function that copys the final contents of the Invoice no (H2), Subtotal (C37), VAT (C38), M.O.T. (F38) and Total (I38) cells from the 'Sales Invoice' worksheet to the newly created 'VAT' worksheet in the respective columns. I would like this to be cumulative, i.e. continue to add the contents of the afore mentioned cells to the appropriate columns in the 'VAT' worksheet every time the invoice is saved. I would also like to have the Subtotal, VAT, MOT and Total columns summed and outputted in a cell of their own - but hopefully I can handle that.

Clipboard Manipulation

Oct 6, 2007

I am looping through and copying screens of mainframe data and appending them to the clipboard. Once done, I start a Notepad and paste it for future massaging. Now I need to perform a check on each screen which requires copying something from the screen, assigning to a variable, and checking it. This overwrites what I've already stored on the clipboard. Is there a way to store what I've got on the clipboard, then use the clipboard for something else, and then reload the clipboard?

Clear Clipboard

Oct 7, 2007

I'm currently opening up worksheets, copying the data there inside tables and pasting it over to a new worksheet which is basically the summary of all the data, unfortunately because I am moving large amounts of data, half way through the process I get a pop up asking me if I want to copy data to wherever to make sure it's stored or do I want to loose it, of course it's only a matter of hitting the no button to re-write the data so copy and paste carries on working but is there no function in VBA to clear the clipboard after every copy and paste, such as clipboard.clear, or something along those lines? Anything that will stop this message from appearing, I was my summary worksheet to work without popups appearing because then that would mean someone would have to sit there as it copies and pastes values, clicking no every time the clipboard gets full.

Turning Off The Clipboard Sound

Dec 12, 2007

I recently installed Office 2002 onto a new computer and found that whenever I drag-and-drop any amount of data from one cell to another, a loud obnoxious noise plays when I release the drag-and-drop data.

I was using the same version of Office on my old computer and did not have this problem.

I'm guessing it's a clipboard issue, since when I open the Excel clipboard (where I currently have all options as unchecked) and copy something so it is captured there, the same noise plays.

I already have turned off Windows sounds via the Control Panel and have no clue how to turn off this sound.

Stop VB From Clearing Clipboard

How can I prevent this, but still keep my current commands?

Reading From Clipboard Before Pasting

May 28, 2008

Is it possible for VBA to read data from a clipboard so that it knows what sheet to paste the data to? Currently we run a financial tool and 2 reports are ran and I put in a bottom so users could easily just paste special values into the correct place. Sometimes the users forget if they copied the balance sheet data or income statement data and currently its not a big deal because there are no columns to the right of where it is pasting so it isn't screwing anything up and they just delete the data and paste it to the correct sheet.

I have thought of 2 approaches I am going to take, but started to wonder if one could read the data from the clipboard before the paste.

My 2 options would be:

Option 1. Paste data to newly created sheet and check if it is balance sheet or income statement and then move from newly created sheet to correct sheet and delete newly created sheet. The user wouldn't see any of this because I would disable screen updating.

Option 2. Learn how to use Undo within my VBA or keep the Undo cache with items in it as it typically clears when VBA is executed. That way if they paste it and it is wrong I can just undo the VBA paste.

Option 1 I am confident I can handle. Option 2 I can research and feel I could do, but if it comes a time when a sheet has data I do not want to paste over then this option is no good.

I would like to hear any comments or feedback on this and if it is possible to read data off the clipboard so it knows where to paste.

Clearing The Clipboard In Code

Jul 17, 2007

My workbook has much copy and past from one sheet to another after a web query, eventually it freezes.

I suspected all along it had something to do with the Copy/Paste and the clipboard required to be absoultely emptied.
The code I used to "clear the clipboard" is:

Declare Function CloseClipboard Lib "user32" () As Long
Declare Function EmptyClipboard Lib "user32" () As Long
Declare Function OpenClipboard Lib "user32" (ByVal Hwnd As Long) As Long

Sub ClearClipboard()
OpenClipboard 0&
EmptyClipboard
CloseClipboard
End Sub

But when I checked out some freeware in relation to clipboard viewers etc, it seems after running this code it does not absolutely empty the clipboard.

How can I empty the clipboard entirely or am I not constructing my work correctly ?

Insert Value On Clipboard Into Find Method

Jan 31, 2013

How to get the GetFromClipboard syntax from here working with my code (below), but am having a really frustrating time. Basically, I need to search for whatever value is copied to the clipboard (as you can see below which will be relative to a certain cell).

Here's what I have so far, and I'm trying to replace the contents of the What:="121212121" part of the Find method to look for the clipboard contents (a 9 char number) in another sheet (where a duplicate exists - the value I am searching will be a unique identifier for the incorrectly created duplicate record that needs to be deleted).

So, What:=<insert number/string on clipboard here>

VB:
Sub DeleteDupes()

ActiveCell.Offset(0, 5).Range("A1").Select
Selection.Copy
Sheets("ActvMbrs_MatchCombos").Select
Cells.Find(What:="121212121", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlFormulas, _

Excel Reversing Day And Month In Clipboard

Nov 21, 2013

My colleague copies a date to the clipboard and then pastes it back onto the same spreadsheet. The month and day reverse (01/12/2013 becomes 12/01/2013). This doesn't happen when copying 14/12/2013 (probably because it can't be interpreted two ways) nor when avoiding the clipboard with ctrl-C/ctrl-V.

My working theory is that it's some kind of autotext or formatting function. Is there a way to disable this feature/function/glitch?

Macro For Pasting CSV Data From Clipboard?

Jul 17, 2014

I'm trying to implement a very simple macro to paste a set of cells - already copied to the clipboard from a CSV file - into a worksheet.

Basically, all I need it to do is to allow the user to open that other CSV file, hit CTRL+A and CTRL+C, then go to the relevant sheet in my workbook and run the macro, which should simply paste the copied data into that sheet (starting at cell A30).

Here's what I have so far - I keep getting an error when the macro reaches the ActiveSheet.Paste command.

VB:
Sub UpdateData()

' UpdateData Macro

What I would like to do is add code to the pastespecial macro that looks to see if there is something to paste - if not, I want to give my own message and not the default one.

b) When the text selected says "The result is not available

outcomeData.SetText Range("a16").Value

Copy/Cut Clipboard Being Cleared By Events

Aug 23, 2006

I have a legacy Excel VB application with multiple sheets. When the
users tab from sheetA to sheetB the paste buffer is cleared. This might
be due to the fact that sheetB has Worksheet_Activate processing that
does some validation and refreshes a pivot table (on sheetB).

Is there a way to reserve and restore the contents of the paste buffer,
and make sure the user can actually paste values from sheetA to sheetB
(using either Ctrl-V or Edit-Paste)?

Worksheet Refresh Clears Clipboard

Jan 26, 2007

I have written a spreadsheet for scheduling employee shifts.

My problem is that I have written some calculations in on the Worksheet_Change subroutine.

What happens is when I want to copy a selection and paste it multiple times, it clears my active selection's "Copied" status whenever I paste.

I'm not sure if I'm explaining it clearly, but if I copy a selection (it turns the typical selected colors with the dashed border), go to the first destination, and paste, the spreadsheet then refreshes the total hours columns, which clears the "copied" status of the original range.

I was thinking of checking the clipboard contents to see if it contains an excel range, and putting it back in the clipboard after the spreadsheet updates.

I'd like to know how to check the clipboard contents, or if anyone else can think of a different way to circumvent this,

Close Workbook Without Clipboard Message

I assume there is something on the order of: workbook.close DontSaveClipboard:=True

Question #1 is: What is the parameter syntax for saving or not saving the clipboard?

Question #2 is: Where would I go to look up these parameter settings instead of having to come back to the group every time I find the next one I need?
