Variable to Capture Selection - Not Line

Recommended Posts

If I want to capture a Line I basically do the following:


Variable Set to ASCII Char 13 to %CR%

Variable Set to ASCII Char 10 to %LF%

Variable Set String %Content% from the clipboard contents

Split String "%Content%" on "%CR%%LF%" into %Line%, starting at 1

// Place values from SelectPhone into Excel

Window Activate: Microsoft Excel

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): %Line[1]%

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <TAB>%Line[2]%


At times I only want to capture a part of a line as example: Phone: 262-353-3278

My Selection is made by: Ctrl+Shift(RightArrow), (RightArrow)(RightArrow), Shift (End)

It seems to me I only need to change one line to do this: Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <TAB>%Line[2]%


The following changes nothing. I still do get the entire Phone Line capture. I onlt want the number.

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <CTRLD><SHIFTD><ARROW RIGHT><CTRLU><SHIFTU><ARROW RIGHT><SHIFT><END><TAB>%Line[11]%

FYI all of the emails I send to you are being bounced. I also sent you a PM and left a voice mail. I figured I'd try this as a last chance to get thru to you.
