usual u use directly the dataset which is assigned to the grid for this

a sceleton

implementation
{$R *.DFM}

uses Clipbrd;
var AClipBoard : TClipBoard;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  AClipBoard.AsText := Dataset.FieldByName('FieldNameYouWant').AsString;
end;

initialization
  AClipBoard := TClipBoard.Create;
finalization
  AClipBoard.Free;
end.

HI,
Do the following:
procedure TForm1.DBGrid1CellClick(Column: TColumn);
begin
  AClipBoard.AsText:=Column.Field.AsString;
end;
Here AClipBoard is a variable of type TClipBoard
(If you read the previous comment you know how to create and free it).
Sincerely,
Nestorua.

ClipBoard is a global object and doesn't need to be created
