I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Absolutly and its very hand and easy:

var testString:String = "Hello this is now in the clipboard";

System.setClipboard(testString);

Make sure you import:

import  flash.system.System;
