Problems In Java App

I have a macro that copies an area from a fixed window. This area will always contain either an "A" or a "Z". I have been running this macro for weeks without a problem, but now it is broken. The macro copies the "A" or "Z" into the clipboard. If the clipboard text is "Z", then an "If" command runs. Again, it's been fine until Monday.

 

I have checked to see if the text that is copying to the clipboard is actually a "Z" and that's what comes up. So, for some reason the macro is ending before the "if" command even if the clipboard contains the correct character. The window is a java app that emulates a DOS program, but all that has changed is the color and the position (which I have corrected).

 

I have copied the macro below.

Is it possible that the clipboard contains a space in front of or after the 'Z'? This would be difficult to determine and would cause your macro to fail. You could either read the clipboard into a variable and then trim off any spaces or you could do an If Clipboard Contains instead of If Clipboard Equals command.

 

Another idea. It looks like your macro was first created by 'Capturing' it. What happens if you recapture the macro?

 

One last idea: Have you updated the Java Runtime Engine (JRE)? Some versions work better than others with macro programs. You mentioned that the colors changed. Was this a result of updating the JRE or was it a result of the application being updated?
