stevecasper Posted April 17, 2009 Report Share Posted April 17, 2009 Hi everybody, This issue may be related to the ever-popular Running Man Hanging posts, or it may be completely separate. I have several macros that call web sites using the Web Site command. I leave my settings to use Internet Explorer, and I have Wait for the webpage checked. Until very recently, I had never experienced any problem with this command or its usage. However in the past day or two I have started experiencing a relatively annoying, macro-crippling problem. ME is not recognizing the webpage as it finishes loading, leaving my macro hanging and waiting. The work-around is straight-forward enough: uncheck wait for webpage, and then build a Repeat loop checking to see if the web site I'm looking for is there. But straight-forward or not, it's obnoxious and undesirable. Has anybody else experiencing the hanging running man issue been able to link it directly to this particular command? Or should I expect to have it happen on other commands as well? And just to be clear: This is happening on a macro that worked fine earlier today. I made one small change to an Update Textbox command that falls immediately prior to the Web Site command, and since then it has not worked (I changed the font size of one word and turned the last line into two lines that are centered, assuming that matters). Undoing the changes - or, more precisely, making new changes that put the Update back the way it was - did not repair the issue. -EDIT - 12:16 PM Mtn The macro I am having the problem with right now systematically launches a number of intranet sites that I use at work. The first one is having the problem described above. The next one launches without a problem. However, after the macro signs me into the site I have a stand-alone Wait for Web Page command that is hanging. Upon deeper research I see that the one that launches without a problem does not have the Wait For box checked. It seems the problem is not necessarily associated with the Web Site command so much as it is with the Wait For command (and the associated Wait For check box within the Web Site command).
