How can I create a macro that runs a script from a text file on another drive?


Recommended Posts

I would like to create some macros to fill in certain forms online. I need to keep the scripts on another drive (a different drive from the one where macex.mex is located).

 

It's easy for me to create a Text Type script in Macro Express and copy and past the script from Direct Editor to a text file. But I can't figure out how to tell Macro Express to run the script from a specific file at a specific location.

 

I tried the command for processing a text file, but nothing happened. I'm not sure if I did something wrong, if that's the wrong command, or if I should use an ASCII file instead of a text file. I haven't been able to find the answer online. Will appreciate any help.

 

I'm using Macro Express 5.1.3.1.

I found the answer. I need only one command in my macro: Load text file.

 

Even that was confusing, because I thought that after I loaded the text file, I would need another command to run it. Since I could not find such a command, I tried playing the macro consisting only of the "Load text file" command. IT WORKED!

 

Thanks anyway. Maybe this will help someone else.

 

I have been using Macro Express since 2005 and am glad to find yet another way to use it.
