Excel VBA Clear Clipboard

Excel VBA Clear Clipboard

Clearing the clipboard in Excel VBA only requires a single line of code:

Application.CutCopyMode = False

 

vba clear clipboard

However, this is different from the standard Windows clipboard.  To clear the Windows clipboard you can use the EmptyClipboard Function.  Copy and paste the code below into a code module and run Sub TestClipboardClear to clear the Windows clipboard.

Option Explicit

Public Declare Function OpenClipboard Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long
Public Declare Function EmptyClipboard Lib "user32" () As Long
Public Declare Function CloseClipboard Lib "user32" () As Long

Public Function ClearClipboard()
  OpenClipboard (0&)
  EmptyClipboard
  CloseClipboard
End Function

Sub TestClipboardClear()
  Call ClearClipboard
End Sub
