In the VB.Net code at bottom the clipboard is set to data for both word and notepad

Please indicate the corresponding code for doing this in VB 6.

           Dim dataObject As New System.Windows.Forms.DataObject
           Dim textFile as String
           Dim rtfFIle as String
           ' .....

            dataObject.SetData(System.Windows.Forms.DataFormats.Text, True, textFile)
            dataObject.SetData(System.Windows.Forms.DataFormats.Rtf, True, rtfFile)

            System.Windows.Forms.Clipboard.SetDataObject(New System.Windows.Forms.DataObject(System.Windows.Forms.DataFormats.Text, textFile))
            System.Windows.Forms.Clipboard.SetDataObject(New System.Windows.Forms.DataObject(System.Windows.Forms.DataFormats.Rtf, rtfFile))
            System.Windows.Forms.Clipboard.SetDataObject(dataObject)


Also, please indicate whether it is possible to save a word document into string variables (like textFile and rtfFile above) WITHOUT having to write and then read the word document from a text and RTF file.

Thanks.

If there is no way to do the above in VB 6, please indicate how to read in an RTF file and copy it to the clipboard in VB 6.

Thanks.

It is now clear how to read an RTF file and copy it to the clipboard in VB 6.

Howevever, it would be helpful to know how to write both RTF and text to the clipboard in VB 6 as is shown above in VB.Net.

I think you'll find what you need here:

Use the cCustomClipboard class to write to clipboard in multiple formats.
