When composing mail, I often need to paste information from other Office apps, for ex the content of several Excel cells, and I need to paste it as text without any formatting.

I can do it with Edit->Paste Special->Unformatted text, but this is very cumbersome.

I would like to create a toolbar button (or a keyboard shortcut) to do it, like in Excel Paste Values.

But in outlook 2003 (+word) when customizing toolbars I find only Paste Special, which still requires selecting the option "unformatted text" and return.

I there any way to create a button which does it? (I suspect it could be done with a macro, but I'm not masstering them yet)

I do this with an independent little 3rd-party app called PureText; it

sits in the systray, and when you click on the icon it converts your

clipboard to unformatted text. http://www.stevemiller.net/puretext/
