I ran the script:
<job id="vbs">
<script language="VBScript">
set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject"WScript.Shell"
WshShell.Run "Call Sheet"
WshShell.AppActivate "Call Sheet"
</script>
</job>
to switch between tasks.
ANd I get the error:
Line:1
Char:1
Error: Expected statement
Code: 800A0400
Source: Microsoft VB Script compilation error
How do I fix this?
Thankyou.

Hi

To fix the error you are getting you will need to change the code

set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject"WScript.Shell"

to

set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

HTH Regards
