Hello, i have a project for work i am trying to make easier by automating it. i have only gotten into the very basics with autoIt and wanna know if something is possible before i proceed. i have been told that if you use the autoIt window help finder tool and it highlights the object you are wanting to click or change then it can be done. my problem is that i have a GUI that the finder tool can find the whole box but not the individual data within it. if i wanted to change the individual data how would i go about doing it. i have attached the important information about the whole box below.

so i guess all i am really asking is there a way to access inside of a MSFlexGridWndClass? if there is what is the function. i am not asking anyone to write any script for me just point me in the right direction, since i know how mad i get if someone asks me to do any work for free. any pointers would help. thank you in advance

Grid controls do not have an external API for AutoIt to use. You can typically blindly Send @TAB and arrow keys to them to move around, but not read the identity or contents of controls.

Once you have navigated to the grid cell using the methods suggested by PsaltyDS you can sometimes read the contents of a cell or row with the following code.

Local $Value = ClipGet()
