Hmm. Sometimes when the user pastes into Word, he gets what he just
stored in the clipboard buffer. Sometimes he gets something he stored
a half hour ago. It's not always what he just copied to the clipboard
buffer. It would be useful to see what's in the clipboard buffer.
If the user pastes old data then it's because he forgot to press PrtSc. It's
as simple as this. Anyway, he can easily run clipbrd.exe on his own machine
to ensure that he's got the right data on the clipboard, then perform the
paste action into Word.
