A macro being triggered by a file containing text, or pausing until a file contains text

Recommended Posts

Is this possible? I have a separate piece of software that can dump the text into a .txt file. I'm looking for a way for Macro Express to interpret this. I've looked at text file process but I'm struggling to understand it, or if it's the thing I need.

Many thanks.

You can activate a macro by a file coming into existence or changing. Then read all of the file into a variable and see if the text you want exists. 

Text file process is for a line-by-line process. It doesn't sound like that's what you need. 

BTW you can also trigger by processes. That might be easier than monitoring the file.
