Excel Save

3 posts in this topic

I am trying to close the excel window using the following code.

WinClose("Microsoft Excel")

WinWaitActive("Microsoft Excel", "&save")
Send("!n")

For some reason The save window pops up but does not close everything. I typed something after WinWaitActive and before WinWaitActive and found that everything only before WinWaitActive executes, so I think that is where the problem is.

 

So why does it not recognize the window when I type in:

WinWaitActive("Microsoft Excel", "&save")

I AM able to close notepad but not excel:

WinClose ("Untitled - Notepad")
WinWaitActive ("Notepad", "Save")
Send("!n")

Do you have the latest version of autoit?

You can use direct Excel commands rather than using winclose etc...

See autoit help file for _Excelbookopen and _excelbookclose

Additional information can be found here:

In the latest version the command syntax has changed a bit:

_Excel_BookOpen
_Excel_BookSave
_Excel_BookClose
