Activate Excel Popup Window

Recommended Posts


Hey guys, 


what I am trying to do is active the Excel Popup window, type in ID and password, scroll down to the end and click a button named "Log in". Any ideas about how I can do that? Thank you so much!


below is the screenshot of the popup window. I grey out some parts to hide the company information.

I can't help with the specifics because I do not have excel at home, but you can press ALT while focused on that ribbon, and see the key commands to open the window.  That's easy to automate with:


You can also add it to your toolbar shortcuts (you see those at the top left of the window with the quick buttons to save, redo, undo)...those are then Alt+n (example, save would be alt + 1) to activate.

The window looks like it might be an embedded browser, but you would need to use the spytool to verify that...you can the use the _IE* functions to add in the user password.

_IEAttach with option embedded to get the dom object.
