Const GMEM_MOVEABLE = &H40
Const GMEM_ZEROINIT = &H2
Const CF_TEXT = &H01

Sub SetClipboardText(text As String)

Dim hwnd As Long
Dim hGlobalMemory As Long
Dim lpGlobalMemory As Long
Dim ret As Long

On Error Goto error_handler

' Get a handle to current window

Clng(Len(text)+1))

If hGlobalMemory Then

If lpGlobalMemory Then

Call GlobalUnlock(hGlobalMemory)

If OpenClipboard(hwnd) Then
