Re: Wordpad

It appears possible. I just created a Wordpad object in Book1, typed in "hello world", and then used the macro recorder to copy the text from this object to cell "A1".

Here is what the macro recorder came up with...

Sub Macro1()

ActiveSheet.Shapes("Object 1").Select
Selection.Verb Verb:=xlPrimary

End Sub

I have an embedded wordpad which i can access as an oleobject in VBA. I am
completely unsuccessful and curious if I could read the contents of the
embedded file. Once I have the file contents read, I am going to parse the
information and direct the information to cells.

I just need a direction and if the capability is feasible without writing a
temp file and then reading a temp file from the filesystem.
