Hi all,

I am currently having issues using the "Get Clipboard" function. See attached code.

In the Output tab, I get the following error...

Starting Get Clipboard contents into the variable "streamnumber"...
Cannot populate the variable "streamnumber".
Finished Get Clipboard contents.

Strangely enough though, in the Variables tab, I can see the variable "streamnumber" populated with the clipboard contents as expected!

I can also manually go into notepad and paste the text.

Is there a way to fix this WITHOUT using "continue on error"?

Thanks guys!
