Hello, I am using AutoIt only for a while but I have one small (?) problem. How could I change active window to excel? e.g. script is automatically starting at 16:00 but I forgot to close IE which is now active and not excel where runs macro but needs some interaction throung this auto it script ... so I need in this script first of all detect if excel is active and if not active excel, could anyone please help me? thank you :(

Welcome to AutoIt and the forum!

Open a new thread describing what you try to achieve. I guess the solution will be the Excel UDF ;)
