What's the first param in your app ?

Second param is a handle to the data-type, for example if using CF_TEXT, handle to a block of ram allocated with GlobalAlloc (block of ram must contain nul terminated text in ASCII)

e.g.
handle = GlobalAlloc
GlobalLock
Fill in memory
GlobalUnlock

SetClipboardData( CF_TEXT, handle ) ;

If passing a bitmap it's the HBITMAP handle (CF_BITMAP) etc.
