I have a form with a number of image controls and what I want to do is provide a button the user can click to copy the currently selected image to the clipboard, they will then be able to paste the image into word etc. I would be very greatful for any help with this.

Thats brilliant thanks a lot. The reason I have accepted Bobbits comment as an answer is that it fitted in brilliantly with my code. I did try your comment John but it didn't work with my existing code, and it was easier to use Bobbits method than try to modify my code to get it to work. But, thankyou for your comment.

Thanks again.
