cbroome Posted May 6, 2013 Report Share Posted May 6, 2013 Good Afternoon I have read the posts about automating data entry on the Datatel screens. (they changed their name to ellucian) and I see that this may not be easy. I am attempting to setup some unattended data entry on Verion 4.3.2 of the webUI. I have successfully gotten snippets of code to intermittently work to: * copy the person ID from the context box to a variable (using smoooove) * copy the contents of the quick access box to a variable (using smoooove) * Update data and save the records. My problem is that it is inconsistent. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. If data entry is going to be unattended I would like to be able to tell what screen is active and what person record is in the context box. Then there are errors, and locked records to deal with. I have delays in place that are too long, and results are still inconsistent. I always start with a resize and position of the window and set the cursor position so I know where things start. QUESTIONS: Has anyone else done this? Is the inconsistency I am seeing a feature of macro express? Do the HOME, CONTROL-A, SHIFT HOME keystrokes not work in macro express or is this an ellucian silverlight thing? Your advice would be most appreciated.
