TextRange.PasteSpecial (PowerPoint)

Replaces the text range with the contents of the Clipboard in the format specified.

Valid data types for the TextRange object are ppPasteText, ppPasteHTML, and ppPasteRTF (any other format generates an error). If the paste succeeds, this method returns a TextRange object representing the text range that was pasted. The DataType parameter value can be one of these PpPasteDataType constants.

Arguments

Optional arguments

The following arguments are optional

DataType (PpPasteDataType) - A format for the Clipboard contents when they're inserted into the document. The default value varies, depending on the contents in the Clipboard. An error occurs if the specified data type in the DataType argument is not supported by the clipboard contents.


Here you can find possible values for

PpPasteDataType

DisplayAsIcon (Office.MsoTriState) - MsoTrue to display the embedded object (or link) as an icon.

IconFileName (String) - If DisplayAsIcon is set to msoTrue, this argument is the path and file name for the file in which the icon to be displayed is stored. If DisplayAsIcon is set to msoFalse, this argument is ignored.

IconIndex (Long) - If DisplayAsIcon is set to msoTrue, this argument is a number that corresponds to the icon you want to use in the program file specified by IconFilename. For example, 0 (zero) corresponds to the first icon, 1 corresponds to the second icon. If this argument is omitted, the first (default) icon is used. If DisplayAsIcon is set to msoFalse, then this argument is ignored. If IconIndex is outside the valid range, then the default icon (index 0) is used.

IconLabel (String) - If DisplayAsIcon is set to msoTrue, this argument is the text that appears below the icon. If this label is missing, Microsoft PowerPoint generates an icon label based on the Clipboard contents. If DisplayAsIcon is set to msoFalse, then this argument is ignored.

Link (Office.MsoTriState) - Determines whether to create a link to the source file of the Clipboard contents. An error occurs if the Clipboard contents do not support a link.
