Exporting Merge Field To Wordpad

I have a database with over 119,000 records I want to click a button to sent the contents of a merge field to WordPad. I used the sent message command to open the WordPad document and it works great. I then would like to delete all info on the wordpad the paste the contents of the merge field to wordpad, save it, then close it so it can be used by another program. I've tried to use DDE Execute for this part but I can't seem to find the topics or commands for this process. I went to the microsoft libraries and spent many hours reading help files but it was not any help to me.

I've contacted the programmer of the application that needs to recieve the contents of the merged field and he is not familiar with Active X or DDE so I can't think of a way to send the info directly, so I want to send it to WordPad basically as a clipboard. I can then access it through a Macro from the other application.

Is there a way to send the contents of a merge field over a network to a specific computer clipboard?

I am a new member to this forum and have found lots of usefull information here.

Thank You,
