on a form I have a button titled copy.  This program converts numbers to text.
 example:  100 ....One Hundred.....1,200.....One thousand two hundred.....etc.

I want to take the converted text that is displayed in a Textbox and if they click the copy button the text is copied to the clipboard.
Even better is it possible to copy this to the clipboard the number entered in Textbox1 (100)  plus "=" and the converted number in TextBox2

example:  100 = One Hundred

Thank You........
