How to empty the clipboard

P: n/a
Dear reader,

By closing a form after deleting one record, I received a warning telling
me:

"You copied a large amount of data onto the clipboard."

I delete the record with the "cut" command and I have not the intention to
paste the cut items.

I do not know how the data is copied to the clipboard but to solve the
problem I am looking for the VBA instruction in the close event of the form
to empty the clipboard.

Tanks for any help.

Kind regard,

Simon

You may circumvent the problem you described by deleting
selected records using the delete key or something like this
in code:

DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acEditMenu, 8, , acMenuVer70
DoCmd.DoMenuItem acFormBar, acEditMenu, 6, , acMenuVer70

There's also the delete method in DAO recordsets. But from what you're
describing, that's not likely to pertain to your situation.
