How to use Auto Macro Recorder in Excel?

Customer: Thanks, what I mean is how do you make the macro (that has been recorded via your program) part of my Excel spreadsheet. Right now I have an Excel spreadsheet that calls (externally) one of the macros I made using the Auto Macro Recorder software. The problem is that the way this is done is by a hyperlink. If I move the files for whaterver reason, the path will break and I would have to manually go and reconnect the path for each and every one that I created (which is alot).

Our answer: Auto Macro Recorder's script can NOT be part of the code in VB, maybe you can call the scp file by using VB. You said you use hyperlink to call the scp file, so I suggest you put the excel files and scp files in same folder, when you insert hyperlink, you don't need to input the full path, just input the scp file name. Eg: There is a folder named c:\myfiles You put mydoc.xls and script.scp file in c:\myfiles When you want to insert hyperlink, in Excel , just click "Insert" -- "Hyperlink" , then don't browse for file, just input the filename script.scp Excel will find the script.scp file in same folder automatically. So even you move the mydoc.xls and scrpt.scp file to other computer or other folder, if they are in same folder, it's still OK.

How to use Auto Macro Recorder to judge if webpage has been loaded?

Customer: I was wondering if there was any script that would allow for the delay to be until a webpage loads/refreshes. I need it to be for when the page actually comes up, not for when internet explorer opens. Could you let me know if this is doable with your program?

Our answer: The simple solution is: Wait long time enough to ensure that the webpage loads eg: If normally need 10 seconds to load the page, when recording you can wait 60 seconds.>Then when you replay the script, it'll wait 60 seconds and it's enough.

The second solution is "use WAITFORCOLOR command", you need to edit the >script manually.

See: >//0*0*0 is the waiting color: RGB(0,0,0)

WAITFORCOLOR(0*0*0,100000,run(notepad),open(c:\read.txt)) ---- Your mouse point to a pixel,if this color = the waiting color within 100 seconds,then run(notepad) else open c:\read.txt.

To use this, you should move your mouse to point to a special color on the webpage, use a special script to save the color into text file using these command: SaveColor(VARSTR) ----Your mouse point to a pixel,save it's color to a special VARSTR (AutoRecorder's system use VARSTR ) WriteLine(c:\abcd.txt,VARSTR) --- Write a log into c:\abcd.txt ,you can input your own strings or use VARSTR Or use other tools(eg: DreamWeaver) to get the RGB color value. Then edit the part of replay script manually to judge if your mouse point to a correct color(that means the webpage has been loaded), then continue to replay.

There is a example -- wait4blackcolor.scp in installation folder of Auto Macro Recorder. You can run it to see the result. Run that script, after 1 second, if you point to a black color, it'll launch notpad, if you don't point to a black color within 5 seconds, it'll launch Explorer


You can change it to WAITFORCOLOR(0*0*0,50000,doscp(script1.scp),doscp(script2.scp)) to run other script files. (If point to black color, run script1.scp,otherwise run script2.scp) or WAITFORCOLOR(0*0*0,50000,delay(100),exit()) (If point to black color, run delay 0.1 second and continue to run the script,otherwise exit AutoMacroRecorder)
