SendKey Ctrl VSendKey Ctrl VI think Send Keys is the best way if you want to paste something into a field.

@gmaasz Instead of using copy/paste from the clipboard, why not store it in a variable in PAD and then enter the variable text into the appropriate field?

Tried this but it inputs the following into the field:
'{Cntrl+V}'. It doesn't actually paste from the clipboard.

Issue is the formatting.  Per the MS documentation here, to do Ctrl+V you need to enter the text as {Control}({V}))
