oIE question saveas

Recommended Posts


I am running a script that will browse through a list of webpages. I want it to be able to auto save a webpage in MHT format. Can it be done Thank you.

Or can it save the link instead of the webpage automatically in an excel file?

IE.au3 cannot do this directly because of security restrictions in IE that essentially prevent saving anything to disk via script control. You can automate the IE interface manually however with other AutoIt functions (SEND, Win* etc). Note also - I'd be surprised if there are not some freeware programs that can do this for you.

IE.au3 can easily get you the URL of a page (See _IEPropertyGet) and you can write it out to a text file, a CSV file that Excel can open or directly to Excel using the ExcelCom UDF in the forums or writing your own COM automation.

IE.au3 issues with Vista - Workarounds

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
