How could I automatize MS Word 20XX

6 posts in this topic

I'd like to send some characters to an already existing MSWord (and if possible, to powerpoint too), but I can't find a proper way. I tried to inspect the word and use ControlSend, but it can't be inspected "deeply enough". I did the following thing yet:

ControlSend("[CLASS:OpusApp]", "", "[CLASS:_WwG]", "Anything")

But it's not reliable. If you're not focused on the word "sheet", then it's not working. Do you guys have any better idea? I had a look at word udf, but I'm not sure if it's possible with it. So, any better idea?

Did you check the Word UDF that comes with AutoIt?

I couldn't figure it out how to send characters to an existing word window. If I missed something could you point which function can make this?

The examples in _Word_DocRangeSet.au3 should give you an idea. Use function _Word_DocAttach to connect to an already open Word document.
