Access 2003 clipboard hyperlink problem

I have a form that takes name/address/plus info copied to the clipboard from the internet. It then parses it into an Access table.

I have a problem when one of the lines copied is a hyperlink.  When there is a hyperlink it gets included with the previous line (no carriage return on the previous line).

Example of lines on internet copied:

Your Source For Local Real Estate
http://www.MyRealtor.com/

When pasted onto the form they appear as:

Your Source For Local Real Estatehttp://www.MyRealtor.com/

My copy function:

Function GetClipBoardText()
   Dim DataObj As MSForms.DataObject
   Set DataObj = New MSForms.DataObject
   On Error GoTo cberr
    'Get data from the clipboard.
   DataObj.GetFromClipboard
   [ipAddrInfo].SetFocus
   'Get clipboard contents
   [ipAddrInfo] = DataObj.GetText(1)
   Exit Function
cberr:
   If Err <> 0 Then MsgBox "Data on clipboard is not text or is empty"
End Function

Not sure why its happening, but you could parse for the start of the hyperlink, and if you find "http:/" then just add a chr(10) to the start of it.

eg

[ipAddrInfo] = StrTranOnce(DataObj.GetText(1), "http:/", chr(10)&"http:/")

where

Public Function StrTranOnce(Instring As String, FindChar As String, ReplaceChar As String) As String
  Dim tmpString As String, CharPosition As Integer
  StrTranOnce = Instring
  If FindChar = ReplaceChar Or Trim(Instring) = "" Then Exit Function
  CharPosition = InStr(1, Instring, FindChar, 1)
  tmpString = Left(Instring, CharPosition - 1)
  tmpString = tmpString + ReplaceChar
  StrTranOnce = tmpString + Mid(Instring, CharPosition + Len(FindChar))
End Function
