Hi There!

Applications which has got ole embedding enabled will be able to do that.For example try dragging an attachment from outlook into
windows word pad. It will get copied or embedded into it.

So in short OLE drag and drop should do the trick. See *Drag and Drop(OLE)* in msdn.There is a cook book procedure in msdn to acheive
this in your application.I hope this will give you a start!

Best Regards,
