The FORMATETC structure encompass a target device, the aspect or view of the data, and a storage medium indicator. Instead of a Clipboard format, OLE uses a FORMATETC data structure instead. This structure is used as a parameter in OLE functions and methods that require data format information.

For more information about the FORMATETC structure, see the MSDN Library.
