Hi, I'm looking for an application that can automate data entry into a third party application. My exact needs are:

 

- Needs to be able to query a database to get the data

- Needs to be activate the third party app (make it the active window)

- Needs to enter the data from the query into the third party app (with the appropriate tab sequences and enter sequences.)

 

Is this possible with Macro Express? I didn't find any way to run a database query from within Macro Express. Is this possible?

 

Thanks,

Needs to be able to query a database to get the data

There are no commands built directly in to Macro Express to extract data from the many different database engines out there. However, you can use Macro Express to control a script that extracts the data. There was a recent topic about this very subject. You can find it here.
