Macro tries to SAVE instead of OPEN

This is driving me nuts! With a file open in a particular program, I send keystrokes to open another file (Ctl+o). The file browser dialog appears correctly and my TextType command then enters the name of the file wanted into the box. The next keystroke is Enter, which should simply OPEN that file. But instead it tries to SAVE the current file. No matter what Delays or Waits I put after the Enter, the problem remains.

 

Anyone have any ideas on what might be happening here and how to fix it please?

Sorted thanks. It was my own stupid mistake. It was simply asking me if I wanted to save the current file before opening a new one!

 

Actually, I hadn't consciously made any changes since the last save, but no harm in having the macro click No, or enter N.

 

But what's the usual way of handling this, to allow for the whether the message does or does not pop up please?
