Hi everyone, autoit's win activate can activate a window based on its title and name. But what if I had say 10 excel workbooks open and they are all named as specific objects. e.g. $oExcel1 , $oExcel2, etc and I want to activate them according to their object name and not their Win title because that could change.

:edit sorry my keyboard is messed, had some spelling mistakes

Try:
$oExcel = ObjGet($sFileName, "Excel.Application")

I'm in my Office-free happy place, and can't test this with OOo Calc, but it should be close for when the $sFileName file is already open.
