Issue with automating copy paste content


Recommended Posts

You are probably on the right track by using program launch and window activate commands.

1. For now, forget about looping through multiple files. Simplify. Get it to work for one file.

2. Insert long pauses after each command. 1 or 1.5 seconds should be plenty. Commands that bring up windows and programs take time to work.

Once you get the macro to work. use trial and error experimentation to figure out how short delays can be. Sometimes delays can be omitted. Sometimes they need to be longer than you might imagine.

3. Once you get the script functional, use it as often as possible for a day or two or three to ensure it's reliable. Then, make a copy of the macro, and start adding the code to loop through multiple files, which will add another layer of complexity.
