Chapter 6. Sharing Data Between Office A... > Using the Office Clipboard

Using the Office Clipboard

The Windows Clipboard is just fine for simple cut-and-paste jobs, but it's sheer torture when your task involves wholesale document assembly. Open the original document. Copy an item. Switch to the new document. Paste. Repeat. Regardless of how many keyboard and mouse shortcuts you master, the process is still tedious at best.

Office 2000 significantly improves the document-assembly options available to you in Office 95 and Office 97 by augmenting the standard Windows Clipboard with an enhanced Clipboard toolbar. Its "collect and paste" capability lets you gather as many as 12 Office objects and then paste them—one at a time or all at once—into an Office document. The Office Clipboard can hold any data type that will fit in the Windows Clipboard, including text from a Word document; a dataset from an Access database; graphics (even the animated variety) for use in PowerPoint presentations or forms built in Word, Excel, or Access; and Excel charts or ranges.
