  1. Retrieve Sheetname from Excel

    If you put =Sheet() in an empty cell it would give you the sheet number. You could write a VBA macro to pop up a dialog box with the sheet name. Trigger it with a hotkey in Excel.
  2. Shortcuts extremely slow

    Is the Ctrl+k being 'typed' from a macro? Or are you saying that you're experiencing this when you manually type Ctrl+k?
  3. Shortcuts extremely slow

    To be clear, if you terminate MEP, the keyboard shortcuts in Outlook are responsive again?
  4. Hi Jeff! I can't think of any way to circumvent the password. ISS might be able to help you with that. Off the top of my head all I can think of is to create a new file. Then import all the macros except the PGM macros from the old file.
  5. I requested a feature to find and replace in multiple macros.
  6. That's a hard one. I think Terry has more experience with this. One thing that I suggest is that you never use Magic Numbers. That is to say, things like this shouldn't be hard coded. You should keep them as a setting in an INI file or something. I prefer to use the Windows Registry. I'm sure by now you can see the reason why.
  7. It does see that way. Timing for web pages is often a difficult thing in MEP. Search here if you have troubles, there are a lot of posts explaining techniques we use.
  8. Sub with parameters

    Not exactly. What I do is to create macros as subroutines but you can't pass parameters like a normal program. So I use variables that are scoped properly. If you notice when you define a variable there's an option for it to be available to sub-macros. I found scope in MEP to be confusing so I wrote this page to explain it. You can also use some other mechanism like the registry.
  9. You might need to add a delay. Often the web page technically loads but then there are additional scripts that execute after this. Timing of web pages is one of the greatest challenges in MEP.
  10. Macro Express Pro v

    Awesome! Thanks for all your hard work.
  11. Waiting for Key Press - more choices

    You might consider making a feature request on their website. I've been thinking of creating a generic .NET webform that a macro could define. Mainly people want to have multiple text fields. In my vision there my program would take text file as a command line parameter. Each line of the text file would create the form controls in a simplified way. EG text boxes, buttons, radio buttons, check boxes. Look in my posts for my offer. I could see creating a 'wait for key press' control. However no one seems interested in it so I can't justify spending the time to make what could be a very useful add-in. I would also like to make add-ins for RegEx, Web tasks and other functions MEP doesn't have.
  12. Integer seconds to yyyymmdd-hhmmss ?

    I'm very behind with work and don't have time. Can you make a simple macro that demonstrates the problem. Also instead of using a dialog box to prompt the user, can you just set a text variable? I'm thinking it should be a 2 line macro.
  13. Cannot run any PGM macros

    I meant to suggest you turn off ANTI-malware or ANTI-virus, not that you have malware. For instance I know McAfee makes it impossible to install Carbonite or any of it's updates. It blocks many changes the installer tries ot make. So I disable it, run the install, then re-enable.
  14. Correct. Here again you need to use MEP's file manipulation commands and stay away form Window File Explorer.
  15. Waiting for Key Press - more choices

    Not much time to comment but waiting for for an unknown key is not something MEP does. Look in the forum and you will find dozens of times people have wanted this but it wasn't available. It's best to think of another way to do what you need. Paul has probably the most reasonable solution and to my way of thinking that's too complicated.
