Scheduling a macro

Is it possible to schedule a macro to run at a particular time of day? If so, what are the steps to scheduling a macro to run?

  1. Click Macro, Add Macro or click the Add Macro button.
  2. Choose Schedule
  3. Choose Daily
  4. Select the time and which days to run

You can have the new scheduled macro run an existing macro using the 'Macro Run' command. Or you can add a schedule to an existing macro by clicking the properties tab for that macro.

 

The Macro Express Help contains a tutorial for running a scheduled macro along with information about all other macro commands. Click Help, Macro Express Help to start.

Alternatively, you can create an operating system scheduled task to run the following command daily at a certain time, or once, or weekly on certain day(s), etc. This method offers more capabilities, e.g. wake the machine up to run your task (but you may need to create an automatic login procedure):

QualifiedPath\Meproc.exe /AYourMacroName

where QualifiedPath is the fully qualified path to Macro Express, e.g. "C:\Program Files\Macro Express"
