I can save my file object to the clipboard programatically (I think), but then I don't know how to save it to a file programmatically.  Is this possible?

That's copying files TO the clipboard, which as I said I can already do.  I need to save the contents of the clipboard to a file.

Then have a look at http://vb.mvps.org/samples/project.asp?id=clipfilecopy - there is also a code sample to download, and some explanation as to how filecopy is actually done internally by explorer.
