I would like to know how i can copy to clipboard all cells from a selected row in my MSHFlexgrid1, and when i will paste this in excel, all MSHFlexgrid cells will go in different cells in excel.

Is that possible?

Thanks again for your help.

I think i have it.

something like this would do it:
    Dim str As String, i As Integer
    With MSHFlexGrid1
        For i = 0 To .Cols - 1
            str = str & .TextMatrix(1, i) & vbTab
        Next i
        Clipboard.SetText (str)
    End With

Open in new window

Try this. Before you do set the grid's SelectionMode to flexSelectionByRow ( or 1)

    Clipboard.SetText MSHFlexGrid1.Clip

That of course is just the copying part. In order to do the rest i need to know where this is being done? Is the code in a VB6 project and you want to update a sheet in an existing workbook?

The copy to Excel could be as simple as this.

    ActiveSheet.PasteSpecial Format:="Unicode Text", Link:=False, _
        DisplayAsIcon:=False, NoHTMLFormatting:=True

Yes, this all start in my MSHFlexgrid. That is were i will do the copy thing.

Once i click in the row, it will copy all the cells to clipboard.

Then, i would go in Excel and just paste the values.
