  I run a nightly Macro that logs into my accounting software and starts this program ( Microsoft Great Plains ), logs into it with the correct user name and password and prints Credit Card Reports that I need and then ends the Macro. The problem is that the Macro can not end successfully out of the Great Plains program so Great Plains ends up still running on my Server. I need a way to end Great Plains so that when the Macro starts the next night it will again log in and repeat the proper steps and it will not run correctly if Great Plains is running. The Macro was recorded through Great Plains as a feature to automate procedures.

There are killtask programs but I think this one fits better:

 The question should really be "What CAN'T it do?" for the possibilities are endless. Macro Scheduler is designed to automate ANY software process. Some examples of what people use Macro Scheduler for include:
# Eliminating Repetitive Data Entry
# Automating Software Installations
# Automating and Scheduling System & Network Tasks
# Data Retrieval and Data Consolidation
# Interfacing Multiple Incompatible Applications
# Automating File Transfers and Internet Downloads
# Automating & Simpiflying ERP System Tasks     <--- great plains???
# Automating Internet and Web Tasks (See WebRecorder)
# Automatically Replying to Emails
# Extracting Data & Generating Reports
# Automated Software & Web Testing
# Batching Multiple Tasks Together


Give it a try.
