Copy Listbox Contents To Listview


I need to copy the entire contents of a Listbox (List1) to a Listview (LvP).

The Listbox has a single column and the Listview has 2 columns.

Each entry in the Listbox is made up of two sets of information seperated by a Tab, eg, X tab Description

I need the information copied over to the Listview so that the X is in the 1st column of the Listview and the Description is in the 2nd column.

I seem to be going round in circles and not getting anywhere.

Any ideas.

How To Copy Listview Contents
I have a ListView with 7 columns of data and anywhere from 1 to 255 rows of data. I would like to be able to have the user right-click on the data and copy all of it to the clipboard. Probably would be best to have it in tab-delimited format. Any ideas? Thanks!!!

Hi all,
Get a pretty simle one but a little bit too difficult for me to work out.

I've attached a file to this thread called

It basically contains a form with listboxes (FromList & ToList).
I've added some names in the listbox by using the following code

Also, would like to click on another Command Button which openeds up a spreadsheet preferred (or another page with a single list box in it) and displays what I selected.

People get moved alot, and aren't happy if their pretty icons and backgrounds dont follow.

Dim fso as new FileSystemObject

end sub

You might need to use some of the other fso methods to help you out. .FolderExists, .CreateFolder etc.

Copy Complete Contents From One Workbook To Another?

I'm trying to get something to work that will copy everything on sheet one from one workbook (Test2.csv), to sheet two on another workbook (test1.xls).

The problem is that test2.csv is being used and you have to enter a prompt of read only to access the data to perform this function.

test2.csv is a database of sorts for collecting data from one statistic over time. (one day/oner sample every 5 mins - looping)

How can I get this to work?

Thanks in advance! You guys are great.

Copy/Save Webbrowser Contents
I'm trying to periodically check for results from a web page, but they're displaying in what i think is an AJAX app or something similar, so i can't get them by saving the source. If i save the source manually, it's just a couple of lines that execute the application..

Also, I can't link you guys to the site 'cause it's only available on a private government network (which also makes non native libraries inaccessible to me.) I'm limited to everything native.

I've found that highlighting the entire page, copying it to the clipboard, and saving is the only way to extract the data that a want.

so i tried:

Now this works fine on my home PC, but for some reason at work it gives me an unknown automation error (440 i think) regarding ExecWB... Not sure what steps to take now.. (... 5 minutes elapse ... )

ok I also tried:

SendKeys "^A"
SendKeys "^C"
That doesn't seem to accomplish anything... waaaahh!

Please advise..

-Thanks in advance

Copy Command Prompt Contents
I've got an old database for DOS that I want to extract some information from, but there's no way to customise reports how I want. To cut a long story short, I'm hoping to send key presses to it from a VB program (this bit shouldn't be a problem), and then copy the results from the screen.

eg. If I open a command prompt (not full screen), load the database and get some information up, I can then click on the system menu and select Edit / Select All / Copy and then Paste this information elsewhere.

What I really want to do is automate this - copy it to the clipboard from my VB program and paste it into an array.

Does anyone have any idea how to do such a thing?
Any guidance would be MUCH appreciated.

Copy Contents Of A Container Into A Picbox???
another question for the experts.

I have a form with a Picbox covering most of the form.
This Picbox serves as container for 2 more Picboxes.
These 2 Picboxes alternately scroll through the container-Picbox and frequently change their contents.
As this form is on a secondary monitor, and thus not necessarily visible from the primary monitor, I'd like to have a Picbox on the primary monitor that reflects the contents of my container picbox (still with me? )
I've tried everything I've learned here in the last days
(WM_PrintClient, StretchBlt...), but I just can't get it.

Hope someone has an idea since I'm really stuck!!

Many thanks in advance!

Copy Textbox Contents To Worksheets

I'm a relative newbie to VB and doing some vb programming in excel 2003 (vb6.3). I've created a form with numerous textboxes and written code to copy the contents into an Excel worksheet with a command_click event:

Private Sub cmdTfrData2Excel_Click()
Dim iRow As Long
Dim ws As Worksheet
Set ws = Worksheets("Data")

'Find first empty row in the spreadsheet
iRow = ws.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Row

'Copies textbox contents to the Data spreadsheet
ws.Cells(iRow, 2).Value = Me.txtClientName.Value

I'd like to copy the contents of the textbox txtClientName into a different worksheet in a different column.

I've done a Google search and had a look through the forums but can't find what I'm looking for. It seems so simple but can't find out how to do it.

If I add Set ws = Worksheets("otherspreadsheet") then it copies the contents of txtClientName into column 2 in the otherspreadsheet, but I want it in column 1. Is it possible to do this?

Thanks in advance


Cannot Copy Contents From Image To Picture
I'm trying to copy the contents of a stretched image control to a picturebox, but it doesn't work. It only copies the picture in its original size, what to do?


' now the image control is sized the same as the picturebox control. The image is stretched, because it's larger than the org size of the bmp

picture1.picture = image1.picture

The pictures in the pictrebox and image are not the same, it seems that the picturebox won't go larger than the org size.
When i try it with a smaller picturebox control, the image is cropped....

How can i copy the exact contents of the image control to the picturecontrol ?

How Do I Capture An RTFbox Contents And Copy That Into A Picturebox

I am trying to capture the contents of an RTF box, which has been placed within the bound of a 'CopyBox' Shape, which lies in a PictureBox.
I have successful placed/edited text in the RTFBox as is should look in the Holding PictureBox image. I don't quite know how to capture the image within the bounds of the CopyBox to copy back into the PictureBox.

I tried the following below: (This did not capture the image area that I wanted. I do want to maintain the resolution that is found in the rtfbox when 'pasting' it back into the PictureBox.


Function CaptureImage()
Dim myDC as long

myDC = GetDC(RTFBox1.hWnd)

ClipDataPic.Width = ScaleX(CopyBox.Width, vbPixels, vbTwips)
ClipDataPic.Height = ScaleY(CopyBox.Height, vbPixels, vbTwips) Call BitBlt(ClipDataPic.hdc, 0, 0, CopyBox.Width, CopyBox.Height, myDC, CopyBox.Left, CopyBox.Top, SRCCOPY)

CopyBox.Visible = False
Clipboard.SetData ClipDataPic.Image, vbCFBitmap
End Function

Any ideas?

Copy Word Contents To Image File
Not sure if this is the right topic to poist this in, but it seems right.

Anyway, I'm trying to take the entire contents of a Word document via Selection.WholeStory copied to the clipboard and save it to an image file. .tiff, .bmp, or .jpg.
The whole purpose of this is to create several hundred document samples for my image database application (I do this via Word macro). I have barcode fonts that I can use to randomly create sample barcode text strings for my application to read. However, I need to convert these documents to an image format that my app can read. i.e. .bmp, .tif, and .jpg.

Sub CopyToImageFile()

'Copy entire contents of document

'Copy contents of clipboard to image file here.

End Sub

I've seen several examples of copying from a picture control and such, but I'm either not getting it, or it doesn't apply to what I am trying to do.

Copy Word.doc Contents To Field In Access
I'm sure this is way easy for you guys to do, but I can't seem to find any reference to it ANYWHERE.

I simply want to place a command button on an Access form that will copy an open word document's text contents (These have pasted printscreen images on them as well but I don't need that) to a given field in my database.

If someone is willing to share the code with me I'd be very appreciative.

There's one catch: there are users on this database using Office 2000, as well as Office XP. I found that referencing the Word 11.0 object library for another function caused the 2000 users to lose the ability to use the database.



Add Button To Copy Cell Contents To Clipboard

I've had great fun writing a big VBA-based MS Word automation app. It's being well received. There is one additional function they'd like.

Part of what I do is build forms users can fill out (to request different types of things for a large number of web sites). Thus I slap a two column table onto the page and then plug into the cells of the left column of the table the labels that describe what's needed in that cell. They then fill out the right column.


(periods added here to make table spacing come out right)

You get the idea.

When the data in the forms is used, it's often copied to be used somewhere else. Thus someone grabs the contents of one cell, copies it to the clip board, and then goes to some other app to paste.

SO, my desire is not to just do a two column table, but do a three column table. The third column is just buttons or links that say "COPY". When someone clicks on "copy", a macro runs that copies the contents of the one cell immediately to the left of the "COPY" cell to the clipboard.

Any thoughts on how to do this?

(step two of this is to have that third column not always there, but "add-able" afterwards by the post-processing person. I figure, though, that if someone can help me with the basics: select all of cell at right, copy to clipboard, add button to a document) that I can extrapolate from there).


THANKS IN ADVANCE. (My app is 470K so not good to post here)

Copy Text Box Contents To Cells In Excel
I have 2 text boxes on a form where I would like the user to enter numerical data. Then press ENTER, and have the contents of the text boxes copied to cells on the spreadsheet. Then clear the contents of the text boxes on the form and add another record with it's contents written to the next row in the spreadsheet. It doesn't really matter if the copy is executed on the change event of the text box when the user enters the data, or when the user presses ENTER after completing both boxes. There will always be an entry in one box, but not necessatily in both. I can manage the forms and text boxes, but I am having difficulty coming up with some code to deal with this. Can you please help a newbee?
