Macro outside of Excel

EE Pros,

Does MS give you the ability to run a macro outside of Office?  So for example, I want to take an email address and First Name/Last Name in Outlook and put it in a web based mailing program.  Right now I'm having to do a cut and paste on each instead of recording a macro and having the system pick up the data and place it in the web application.

Thank you in advance,

b.

There are several macro recorders that can record keystrokes and mouse clicks, I don't know if it will work in your case, but you can definitely try.

I recommend AutoHotkey @ http://www.autohotkey.com/

In one word, No.

There may be a way, but that depends on the web application.

MacroShadow,

Thank you for the quick response;  put another way; is there any outside programs that allow for you to use a record function to produce a replay that may span applications?  I may be "jousting with windmills" here...... but thought it worth asking the question.
