Thank you very much for your effort. If this really works out, it will
change the my work rationale from water to wine.

I would like to make a other suggestions/comments:

1. Make the default "copy to clipboard" setting = "%q: %d %v \n", at least
for me it is more reasonable.
2. Tested with \t but tab makes the questions less line up after pasting at
3. Nevertheless, common spaces works fine and other characters such as ":"
also seem to work fine.
4. When there is fields such as sex, where there is a value such 1 or 2,
and a value label, such as Male and Female, the setting above will paste
something like "Patient sex: 2 female" which is a little weird, mainly for
those who later will read the medical record and are not awere these came
from dataentry codes. Is it possible to make a setting code to omit the
field value if a value label is available?

A major problem...

I tested the copy to clipboard function and it seems it may work fine only
with the current record, not yet saved. When I go back to saved records and
try to run "copy to clipboard" from these records an error comes:

"Access violation.
Press ok to ignore data corruption.
Press cancel to kill the program."

When I press OK, the data does not go to the clipboard. When I press
cancel, entreyclient is closed. Therefore I cant copy/paste a saved record.

Is there a solution/workaround for this?

Kind regards,
