VBA Word: Cycle through clips in Office clipboard

Is there a keyboard shortcut that will allow me to cycle through the clips in the MS Word office clipboard?

What VBA code would I use so that it will assign the 3rd clip in the office clipboard to a variable (i.e. Dim x as string
        x = 3rd clip)?

for shortcuts,
have a look through http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word/HA101636021033.aspx
and http://www.holywordcafe.com/courses/KEYBOARD_SHORTCUTS_WORD.pdf

for vba,
see http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Excel/Q_21701118.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+clipboard+vba,

Controling the clipboard through VBA is not straight forward, but it can be done (at least sometimes) you can try searching ee for vba clipboard for more specific examples to copy.

Hi werafa,

I was waiting to see if anyone had a new solution, but your links are all about the WINDOWS clipboard.
Have you read the question properly?
As far as I know, there are no keyboards shortcuts for the Office clipboard and I have done some decent research.
Not sure about VBA access but I am sure it is not there - you can verify by recording a macro and checking the VBA code - some things cannot be recorded because.. they are not available!

There appears to be a consensus in other posts that VBA will link to the windows clipboard, but not the office clipboard - this means that there is no direct way to manipulate it via vba.
