      Either it is a bug or by design, NoteTab does not appear to support
      extended characters (above 80 hex or 128 decimal), in (at least),
      the ^!Set and ^!Keyboard commands. So just extend what I gave
      you before. Multiple ^!Keyboard output strings are concatenated
      until terminated. Play with this work around:

      ^!SetClipboard •
      ^!Keyboard #test8:# #string1# $20 CTRL+V $20 #string2#
      ^!SetClipboard ^$DecToChar(151)$
      ^!Keyboard $22 CTRL+V $22 #string3#
      ^!SetClipboard ^$DecToChar(167)$
      ^!Keyboard $20 CTRL+V $20 #string4#
      ^!SetClipboard ^$DecToChar(169)$
      ^!Keyboard $22 CTRL+V $22 #string5# #^%NL%# #^%NL%#

        It seems that maybe notetab should support the extended characters. I
        wonder why not. Thanks Art for figuring that out. Help also should
        mention the limitation it seems to me. Maybe this can either be fixed
        or mentioned in the newest version 5.7 that will be released some day soon.

          Don,

          The sample clip below should solve your problem with a few changes to
          the way you setup your variables.

          ^!ClipBoardSave and ^!ClipBoardRestore +, work great, a sample clip is
          included to demonstrate the use of the commands.

          ^!ClipBoardSave (added in v4.6)
          Saves the Clipboard contents (any type of data) in NoteTab's internal
          memory. This command is to be used in conjunction with
          ^!ClipBoardRestore. It is particularly useful when you want to use the
          Clipboard for temporary storage without permanently removing what the
          user may have initially stored in it.

          ^!ClipBoardRestore [+] (added in v4.6)
          Restore the contents of clipboard saved through the ^!ClipBoardSave
          command. Use the optional "+" parameter if you want NoteTab to keep the
          saved Clipboard data in its internal memory (lets you restore it again
          at a later stage).

          ----------------------------
          h=bullet
          ; Save the bullet to clipboard in this manner at beginning of clip.
          ^!SetClipboard •
          ^!ClipBoardSave

          ^!SetClipboard XXXXX

          ^!Set %address%="40 Golf Course Road"; %the_data6%="THE DATA6";
          %the_data7%="THE DATA7"; %the_data8%="THE DATA8"

          ; For each subsequent use of bullet preface each ^!KeyBoard command with
          ^!ClipBoardRestore +
          ; only necessary if you've copied some else to the clipboard in the interim.
          ; the ^!SetClipboard command for XXXXX and YYYYY are there for demo
          purposes only.

          ^!ClipBoardRestore +
          ^!Keyboard #^%address%# $20 Ctrl+V $20 #^%the_data6%# $20 #^%the_data7%#
          $20 #^%the_data8%# ENTER

          ^!SetClipboard YYYYY

          ^!ClipBoardRestore +
          ^!Keyboard #WORD# $20 CTRL+V $20 #WORD# ENTER ENTER
          --------------------------
