Hi !
I just had the same problem as Jerry and I posted a question a couple 
of days ago ;

Have a look at the thread "copy from a locked, focusable fld under 
Windows"

Nice ideas and solutions have been posted there, from Jonathan Linch, 
Wilhelm Sanke, Jim Ault and Chipp Walter.

Best regards from Grenoble
André
