Working with Excel Data from Clipboard

Hi,

I am looking to import data from Excel via the Clipboard. There are two
reasons I want to do this - speed and unicode data (I have components that
import data from Excel, but they do not handle unicode).

As I undertand it the data is Tab separated in this raw format from the
clipboard. Are there any Delphi functions/controls that can help me get this
data into a TListView? Or is it a case of checking each character and
looking for ansi control characters?

Any help appreaciated.

tia,

jp
