Excel Macros and Errors


Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

I've lurked around here for a while and learned a ton from everyone, but I can't see this issue anywhere.  I've been running macros through Autoit for a while in a number of programs, but I'm having some issues with this one.

Func RunMacro()
    Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open(False, False, False, False) ;Excel Program
    Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, "C:/Equity Helper/Scripts/calendarmacros.xlsm", Default, Default, True)

When I run this bit of code everything works fine as long as the macro gets to finish.  But the actual VBA calls two "Application.UserInput" fields, and if I cancel out of either the macro closes, and then AutoIt throws an error at--

$oExcel.(<---error throws here)Run("calendarmacros.xlsm!Calendar")

I don't want to use autoit for the user inputs if possible, it's just easier to get the data I need for the inputs from within the VBA environment, but I'm afraid that's what's causing the problem.

When you cancel out are you closing Excel altogether? That error is telling you the $oExcel object (the Excel application object) no longer exists.
