    drop attachment into vb, vb6, vba app

    Dropping an attachment from GroupWise into a vb6 program fires the
    OLEDragDrop event. Two formats work with the GetFormat and GetData
    methods on the data object. Unfortunately, the integer values for these
    formats change when I reboot the machine, and they are not the same on
    other machines.

    When the first drop is done I could do a discovery loop to see what
    works, then save those values, but there should be a better way.

    Each of the formats returns a special data structure. One gives a list
    of file names in the temp folder where the selected attachments were
    extracted. The other gives details about extracted attachments such as
    size and original file name. Where is the record layout or data
    structure documented for these?
