"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


Put the folowing into a module:

Option Compare Database
Option Explicit

Private Declare Function _
          apiEmptyClipboard Lib "user32" _
          Alias "EmptyClipboard" () As Long

Private Declare Function _
          apiOpenClipboard Lib "user32" _
          Alias "OpenClipboard" _
          (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function _
         apiCloseClipboard Lib "user32" _
         Alias "CloseClipboard" () As Long
Public Function EmptyClp() As Boolean

    Call apiOpenClipboard(Application.hWndAccessApp)
    Call apiEmptyClipboard
    Call apiCloseClipboard

End Function

Then in you macro put the RunCode action, with EmptyClp() as the function name to run.
