Using the Clipboard (3270 and 5250)
In 3270 and 5250 sessions, the Clipboard has a few features that are only available from submenus on the Session ribbon: Paste Next, Cut and Append, Copy and Append.
Use Paste Next when you have more data in the Clipboard than will fit in a field, and you want to paste the remaining data into another field. Where the Paste command would start at the beginning of the data in the Clipboard, Paste Next starts at the beginning of the remaining data (that is, the Clipboard contents minus what was pasted in the previous field). Consecutive uses of Paste Next will gradually empty the Clipboard.
Use Cut and Append or Copy and Append when you want to add to the Clipboard contents instead of replacing the Clipboard contents.
