Is this an ASP.NET application (you have it tagged as such). If so, you realize that when referring to the "Clipboard" you are dealing with that on the server, not the client machine, yes?

Does that mean you were attempting to set the clipboard on the client's machine? I believe there is a way to do this with a Flash plugin, but I haven't done so myself. I'm sure you could find an example of it online.

I am sorry. I am not setting clipboard in the client machine. I am settin it in the server code.
It worked pretty well in the development server since both client and server are same machine.But, when I installed in UAT server, it does not work.

Also, curious to know if I can use execcommand("Copy") using javascript..its just like using copy and paste of right click in any screen..

thanks.
