Hi everyone....

 

I am trying ot get ME to run some Crystal Report for me and export to a file folders as a pdf... Right now i am running the =macro at night but ideally, i will like ot run multiple times a day... is there a way to run the macro while i am working on the same desktop without interfering....??? any help would be appreciated...

Not exactly. Windows only allows input from the keyboard or mouse to one window at a time. But you can create a virtual session and run Macro Express that way. Using some virtual software, it continues to run when the session is minimized.

 

Most virtualization software clients are free. Check out VMWare, Microsoft's Virtual PC, and Sun's VirtualBox.
