Restore clipboard from Task pane clipboard content?



  • 1. populate cells within merge area
    for charting purposes i need to populate cells within a merged area in my code. If myrng is the merged area and myrng.cells(1) contains mydate then... I've tried dim cl as range dim myrng as range set myrng = Range("MergedRange") for each cl in myrng.cells cl.value = cl.MergeArea.cells(1).value next cl unfortunately, all cells in the merged range remain blank except for cells(1) I've noticed that I can manually populate all cells in a merged range by copying a value and then using pasteSpecial/formulas. In lieu of any better sugestions i'll write code around this principle Thanks
  • 2. find text in a string
    I'm looking for a suggestion or code on finding text within a string. For example, I have a field in an Excel spreadsheet that contains a description of a user issue. I want to categorize these descriptions by finding a specific word in the description, e.g., claim, lawsuit, refund, etc. These specific words are supposed to appear at the beginning of the description but users may place them anywhere in the description. I thought of doing using the 'mid' and cycling through the description but that doesn't seem to be a very efficient way to validate whether a specific word appears in the description. Thanks for the help... -- JT
  • 3. Range updates
    is it possible to create a formula so it adjust automically to number of row or columns in a range, for example if there were values in the range C1 to C5 my countif formula would automatically adjust to countif(c1:c5) and if there values in cells c1 to c1000 the formula would adjust to (c1:c1000) Thanks
  • 4. Prevent deleting of cells
    Hello, I have a spreadsheet that is used by many people to enter information. I want to stop them from deleting individual cells or sections of cells but do not want to protect the cells as I still need them to be able to enter information. Any ideas? Thank you.

Restore clipboard from Task pane clipboard content?

Postby tskogstrom » Wed, 31 Jan 2007 19:48:00 GMT


I have code that kill my Excel Clipboard content, but find that it 
still exist in the task pane clipboard. Is there a way to recreate 
Excel clipboard content from this content after I run my code? I guess 
the best way is to recreate it, on every worksheet_change event and on 
leaving the worksheet and leaving the workbook, to be sure without 
walking through all my code to debug and find where clipboard contet 

If this is possible, I guess some code could check if clipboard is 
empty and only if so, recreate it from task pane clipboard.

It should be silently working, without the taskpane popup. Also, I 
don't know if task pane clipboard can be on- and off - in that case we 
need to be assure it is silently on etc.

Can this be arranged, it would be super...

Kind regards

2.How to copy task pane to clipboard?

I can copy the entire screen using Ctrl+PrtSc. I can copy a window using

3.Clearing the Clipboard task pane in XL ( XP ) !!!

Via the User Interface you achieve this by simply displaying the Office 
ClipBoard and clicking on the 'ClearAll' button .

Programatically , I just can't seem to find a way to do it !!!

In previous versions, you could get the  'ClearAll'   button ID and run its 
Execute Method , but that doesn't seem to work with XL2002 on XP.

I have also tried some Clipboard related API functions but with no luck ! :(

Any help would be much appreciated >



4.Clipboard Task Pane

Does anyone know how to stop the Clipboard Task Pane from 
appearing on the screen?  I'm using Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V to 
move things around and the appearance of the clipboard, 
partiocularly when it's full, is a major pain.  I've 
unchecked the box in Tools, Options, View and that hasn't 
helped.  I can tell the clipboard to collect data without 
showing the clipboard, but that only works for the current 
session -- I'd like to stop it permanently.  TIA

5.Unwanted Task Pane (Clipboard) keeps appearing.

Every time I upgrade to a new version of MS software, I get these
stupid new behaviors shoved down my throat.

Now, dont' get me wrong. New behavior is fine--provided it's turned
OFF by default, not ON.

In Excel 2002, when I press Ctrl-C or Ctrl-X to copy or move
something, the stupid Task Pane appears at right (with Clipboard
content). Perversely--not always, just sometimes. This never happened
in my older Excel. Every time it happens, I've gotta manually kill it.

In Tools / Options / View tab, I tried clearing the "Startup Task
Pane" checkbox, but obviously it has no effect.

I NEVER want to see the Task Pane.

What must I do to kill it?

Thanks much.
