Alternative when Get Control Won't Work

I am trying to capture text from a particular field in a database program. The Get Control command identifies the name of the control, but not the data in it (All I get is a blank) . Is there some other way to capture data from a particular field without using the Get Control Command.

If the Control is recognized by Macro Express, then you can use the Mouse Click in Control command. Then you can use a Text Type: Ctrl+A to highlight the contents of the control (you could also probably double-click within the control, rather than use Ctrl+A). Clipboard Copy command. Set Variable to contents of clipboard.

 

Unless the Control is a button, this should work.
