Confused about Clipboard and Drag/Drop methods

P: n/a
There seems to be two ways to put things on the clipboard: SetClipboardData
and OleSetClipboard

If I want to get data off the clipboard do I care how it was put there?

What about Drag/Drop; is there more than one way for the source to make data
available?
Is it always OLE?

What's the relationship between WM_DROPFILES and HDROP. I think HDROP is
the OLE way.
But can I get the data using either or do I have to know what the source
did?

The bottom line is, an example: If I drag from Word (or the Shell) to my app
how does the app extract it?
Thanks
