Is it possible to write an application where the user can just select an item on it and then drag and drop it into another application (eg a Spreadsheet).  When the user drops it the program would process the data and then add it to the selected application.

I would be grateful for any advice offered regarding this.

Thanks in advance

Yes that is possible.

But before explaining anything I want to know are you going to write both applications or just one of them?

If you write both application no problem.

If you write only the application being dragged from and let the application being dragged to be Microsofts Excel then it will be a bit harder. The application being dragged to should support either DDE or OLE. And it will be tricky to activate that program.

Regards Jacco.
