Hi, Thanks reply....

First what does "send "Enter" to a message" mean? : It means pressing enter key of keyboard after the popup message came from if/else conditions.

Second what is it, you expect to happen?  :  The same is expected..It should hit Enter after the popup message.

As result of If/else conditions, below message will popup on screen and what I was trying to do is to hit enter after this and close this popup.

MsgBox is a Blocking Function.

While active the entire script is on hold.

It will not proceed to send enter until you click "OK" to resume the script. 


You may just want to put a timeout value on your MsgBox if you intend for it to go away on it's own without user interaction.
