'* MODULE NAME: Paste Picture
'* AUTHOR & DATE: STEPHEN BULLEN, Business Modelling Solutions Ltd.
'* 15 November 1998
'*
'* CONTACT: Stephen@BMSLtd.co.uk
'* WEB SITE: http://www.BMSLtd.co.uk
'*
'* DESCRIPTION: Creates a standard Picture object from whatever is on the clipboard.
'* This object can then be assigned to (for example) and Image control
'* on a userform. The PastePicture function takes an optional argument of
'* the picture type - xlBitmap or xlPicture.
'*
'* The code requires a reference to the "OLE Automation" type library
'*
'* The code in this module has been derived from a number of sources
'* discovered on MSDN.
'*
'* To use it, just copy this module into your project, then you can use:
'* Set Image1.Picture = PastePicture(xlBitmap)
'* Set Image1.Picture = PastePicture(xlPicture)
'* to paste a picture of whatever is on the clipboard into a standard image control.
'*
'* PROCEDURES:
'* PastePicture The entry point for the routine
'* CreatePicture Private function to convert a bitmap or metafile handle to an OLE reference
'* fnOLEError Get the error text for an OLE error code
