Read screen data with WshShell

Read screen data with WshShell

(OP)
Gentlemen,
I have a small VBScript to automate certain tasks on an emulation screen. So, I have to move the cursor at one location, read the data and move on to the next, read that data (text or number) and copy that to Excel. I am able to move the cursor by WshShell.SendKeys method and copy data by WshShell.SendKeys "^C" method. Is there a way to set the cursor right at the spot I want and read the data there instead of moving my cursor around with WshShell.SendKeys "{RIGHT}/{LEFT}/..."?
I appreciate your help in advance!
I have attached my VBScript code.
