clipboard data

I am now trying to use AD board, using Labview8.
I must run another application program using HSP, I want to share the data using clipboard.
I tried to search the method for sending the data to clipboad.
I found some vi, such as or copy text to but it does not work, because these are for strings.
My data is numerical, so some change must done, but I can not imagine how to write it, because I am so beginner!!
I tried to write the data to text file, but data adding to the file, very big files!!
Clipboard is most good tool, I think.
And only one data from AD board is needed for sharing.
Please give me your advice.

I am very interested in your VI to write text to the clipboard - but I need to write an image of an intensity graph (including scales color, etc.)
There is an Invoke node for the Intensity charts and graphs called "Get Image" which outputs the image of the chart/graph from the front panel. 
Do you have more details of the function "int32_t SetClipboardData(int32_t Format, int32_t Data);" ?  I am wondering if there is a different tFormat number that would allow me to export the Intensity graph to the clipboard?
Hope to hear from you.
Thank you
S Hughes.

You can certainly perform all those Windows calls. Or, you could just do this:

Hmm... I see the one-star bandit is still around given the one star rating I was given to my response. Which is correct way to do it, by the way, since it's not OS-dependent.

You can find a VI that copies images to the clipboard as part of the tool attached here.

Thanks this looks like it will do it.  I will go away and play and see if I can get it working for me.  Thanks for taking the time to give me the reference.
