Thanks heaps modridirkac.
This is one of those really frustrating Paradox and in this case OLE
issues that once solved will remain solved forever. In the meantime much
So if I use sel.Invoke("PasteSpecial")
It does indeed paste. However it Pastes everything on the clipboard
including the stuff that is not visible so all the horizontal and
vertical bars one sees in a table so those are being stored on the
Clipboard but are not visible.
If I use sel.Invoke("Paste") ....... and am watching what is going on
with the spreadsheet then the focus goes to the Paste Button which then
waits for interaction. And will paste. So the focus is in the right spot
in the spreadsheet. One can continue with the Paste using the down arrow
on the Paste Button or Ctrl+V also pastes correctly.
What I cant seem to do and I must be stupid because if "PasteSpecial"
works then there must be a way to emulate the Ctrl+V command but I cant
figure it out. Tried absolutely everything I can think of so far.
Another one of those things which should be obvious but is not.
Anyway. Thanks for the help and it was a huge help because it gets me to
where all I have to do is figure what I am missing.
