napabrown Posted May 23, 2006 Report Share Posted May 23, 2006 I am ready to get a decent keystroke playback solution, but wanted to make sure the one thing I need can be done with Macro Express. I use my present product for mainly one task. I regularly log in to an online provider and download raw real estate data. The menu system on this system requires me to return to the top level after each county's data is downloaded. With over 50 counties in California, I have simplified this process with a keystroke playback program. But: It could be so much easier if my macro could wait for the text "download completed" to appear in the text window, then resume. In other words, I am not typing the words with my keyboard. Those are the last words that appear in the session before I enter commands to get back to the top of the menu structure to select another county (and start all over). A time pause doesn't work because, for example, Napa County takes about 30 seconds to download and Los Angeles takes about 15 minutes. The only thing in common is that the words "download completed" are fed by the data provider after each chunk of data. Thoughts? I sure hope there a way I can start one macro and download all the data while I am doing other stuff. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.- David Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
