You can look at remoting and pass the data from the first app to the second.

Or you can even access the clipboard programatically from VB using Clipboard.SetDataObject and other functions.

Do you have control over the other application (its source code)?

You could use Sendkeys?? I have also used the dll developed by the producers
of AutoIT, that I find very helpful in this sort of situation, and enables
you to have at least some control over timing etc, in that you can set it to
wait for active windows and various actions. I searched high and low to get
this degree of functionality to get informtaion going from my applicatiosn
to other 3rd party stuff that I could manage in no other way.
