Finding an open file

2 posts in this topic

I'm a newbie to scripting and wondering if there is anyway for a script to detect an open file in another application.The file name would not always be the same.

For example if I had a word document open could a script automatically detect this file so that information could be extracted from it.Any help would appreciated.

Regards

Well if you know the .exe name, you could use this function http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...ndpost&p=182790

To get back the title of the window that was open, if that is what you mean.
