Loop through the forms control collection and use the Tag property to identify the textboxes you want.

heres an example

edit : UG is faster than me.

added PtrSafe to code but still getting compile error on

Public Sub SetClipboard(sUniText As String)
Dim iStrPtr As Long
Dim iLen As Long
Dim iLock As Long
Const GMEM_MOVEABLE As Long = &H2
Const GMEM_ZEROINIT As Long = &H40
Const CF_UNICODETEXT As Long = &HD
OpenClipboard 0&
EmptyClipboard
iLen = LenB(sUniText) + 2&
iStrPtr = GlobalAlloc(GMEM_MOVEABLE Or GMEM_ZEROINIT, iLen)
iLock = GlobalLock(iStrPtr)
lstrcpy iLock, StrPtr(sUniText)
GlobalUnlock iStrPtr
SetClipboardData CF_UNICODETEXT, iStrPtr
CloseClipboard

The code needs to be in a standard module btw, not the form module.

I dont use 64 bit so cant really help you with ptrsafe issue.

I did notice in one of the links there was the option to "Copy From Clipboard"... I wondered if anyone wanted to explore that and post an example?

Thanks Uncle. This looks like a 64 bit version that allegedly works. Cant test it as I dont have 64bit access.

from https://stackoverflow.com/questions/35416662/text-to-clipboard-in-vba-windows-10-issue
