use Record Macro to copy text from screen coordinates

On iSeries Access for Windows version 8, I am accessing an AS400.

I am trying to record a Macro using the "Record" function that will copy certain text.  I can press "control + v" during record to copy the entire screen, but I only want it to copy either coordinates or what I select with the mouse.

Any help would be great!
