expanding clipboard capacity

I am trying to transfer an enormous file from quark to word, unfortunately only a small portion of the document can be transfered at a time due to the size limitations of the clipboard (quark has no export property). The pc has 128mb ram and plenty of hdd space. Any ideas on transfering large data internally other than piece by piece?

Maybe a stupid question but have you tried to just open it with Word. There are programs that can expand the capabilities of the clipboard but how big are you talking
There are several enhanced clip boards out there that may allow you to accomplish your goal. I would ditch the oem clipboard and check out the enhanced windows clipboards.
try clipmate.

I have tried all of the standard simple convers such as wordpad/word etc with jumbled nonsense resulting.
As for third party clipboard programs I have tried clipboard magic, ClipCachePlus, Clipmate5 and tenclip, all have the same size limitation.
