clipboard Posted August 28, 2005 Report Share Posted August 28, 2005 Hi folks This is my first post and I've a feeling that my level of expertise will readily become apparent. At the moment I use a very small macro to help me highlight and save to disk certain web info. I open a web page and on it is listed a whole load of components. Each component is a link to a seperate page which gives the size, pricing, delivery info for that particular piece which I copy to a text file for future use. THE NAME OF THE COMPONENT IS HIGHLIGHTED IN RED AT THE TOP OF ITS OWN PAGE and all other text is the usual black type. Okay, at the moment I open the main web page and click on a component name. When this second page loads I then hit my macro which selects the entire page, copies it to the clipboard, opens notepad, pastes the info onto the page, opens a destination folder on the HD and clicks on "save as". That's it. I then enter the name of the component, save it and then close notepad, close the component page and click on another component on the list and start all over again. There are sometimes 100's of component infos to save (very time consuming). Just using this small macro to select all, copy and paste has saved me hours of boring repetition. What I would really like is to be able to click the fist name on the list and for everything to be fully macroed from there. As the macro made it's way down the list copying, pasteing and saving I would be doing cartwheels in delight but I will settle for...... ........... I would like to get the macro to enter the name of the component into the notepad "save as" field, save it, close all the windows and return me to the main page. All I have to do is click each item in turn and then hit the macro. Perfect. Any ideas?? I thought that the name of the individual component being in RED TEXT may be pertinent! This is my small macro Text Type;<CONTROL>a Clipboard Copy Program Launch:notepad.exe Clipboard Paste Clipboard Empty Delay 380 ms Mouse Move Window 19,38 Mouse Left Button Down MOuse Left Button Up Mouse Move Window 50,110 Delay 1031ms Mouse Left Button Down MOuse Left Button Up Delay 520ms Mouse Move Window 46,60 Many thanks and apologies for the amateurish approach.
