For some reason, the following code isn't working.  It worked the first time I tried it and now isn't:

I'm basically trying to copy-paste all the info from a webbrowser.

Private Sub Command15_Click()
    WebBrowser1.SetFocus
    SendKeys ("^A^C")
    item_description.SetFocus
    SendKeys ("^V")
End Sub

I have heard that some people have to use lowercase.
Try
Private Sub Command15_Click()
    WebBrowser1.SetFocus
    SendKeys ("^a^c")
    item_description.SetFocus
    SendKeys ("^v")
End Sub

Open in new window

Still not grabbing the contents of webbrowser.  It's strange, because if I change the code to:

Private Sub Command15_Click()
    WebBrowser1.SetFocus
End Sub

After I press Command15 I then manually pres:

ctrl-a
ctrl-s
click on item_description
click ctrl-v

It works perfect.

Below works for me
 
WebBrowser1.SetFocus
SendKeys ("^a^c")
DoEvents
item_description.SetFocus
SendKeys ("^v")

Open in new window


(don't forget to try with capitals if lower case doesn't work for you)

DoEvents did the trick.
