sendkeys problem

I am working on Excel vba to control Extra attachmate. i am trying to write codes for the program to click on tools menu, click on  " capture incomming data " , enter the name into the diaglog box and click save. I used they sendkeys command but it doesn't work. anyone got any suggestions? thanks

RE: sendkeys problem

Why not use VBA to do all of this instead of having VBA send instructions to EB to do it?

Your object will have should have the prop/method of capture data just like Extra does. If so it will also have a variable for location to save the data to.

I can't give specific instructions because I don't have that option in my version of Extra.

For the code required, try recording a macro with these steps and then use that as a base for your VBA code.


RE: sendkeys problem

I tried to use the object like you suggested but it didn't have the method or prop. I will try the recording suggestion though. thanks

RE: sendkeys problem

What kind of data are you trying to capture? Do you want to save the data or just use it within your program?
