I want to be able to copy selected rows  or columns out a listview to the clipboard then be able to paste the resuts into excel and have the data inserted in the colums so it is formatted  the same way

so if the listview is like this
data 1 |  data2  | data 3
row2a |  data2  | data 3
 
I want to be able to highlight those 2 rows in the listview and copy them  then paste them into excel or whatever and have them formatted in the rows and colums that were in the listview.

Is there an easy way to do this?

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Clipboard.Clear
For i = 1 To 3
    ListView1.ListItems.Add , , "test"
    ListView1.ListItems.Item(i).SubItems(1) = "test1" & i
    ListView1.ListItems.Item(i).SubItems(2) = "test2" & i
Next i
   
    Dim BUFFER
    For i = 1 To ListView1.ListItems.Count
        BUFFER = BUFFER & ListView1.ListItems.Item(i).Text & vbTab & ListView1.ListItems.Item(i).SubItems(1) & vbTab & ListView1.ListItems.Item(i).SubItems(2) & vbCrLf
    Next i
        Clipboard.SetText BUFFER
End Sub
