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.

In one word, No.

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.
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.

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/
