Run Autoit From VBA (MS Access)

Recommended Posts

gripper

I have an Access DB. I have a command button on a form that I wish to click and have it run an autoit script I created that is on my desktop. The script works fine when I actually click on it but I cannot figure out how to use a command button in Access to run that script. I get errors.

Here is what I have at this point

Private Sub Open_Web_Click()

Application.Run ("C:\Users\user1\Desktop\E-O.au3")

End Sub

I have tried execute command as well and it is dead.

Again my autoit script works perfectly. I am just trying to get it to work from a command button in VBA (MS Access)

I would appreciate any help in resolving my syntax issues.

Thanks

Try this: Compile the script to an exe using SciTe (F7) and run the .exe from VBA and not the .au3
