Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I am in the middle of a macro that performs several different functions one of them runs a .bat file that then opens a program that requires me to sign into. Is there a way to make that program an Object so I can use the macro and Sendkeys (or something similar) commands to sign in automatically?
