Is there a way to combine Ln2 thru 4?  I do not believe I have to select the sheet tab each time as long as it is active.  I just want to put the value collected for Ln1 in a specific cell location on a specific sheet tab.

    MatlDescValue = session.findbyid("wnd[0]/usr/tabsTABSPR1/tabpSP02/ssubTABFRA1:SAPLMGMM:2004/subSUB1:SAPLMGD1:1002/txtMAKT-MAKTX").Text 'Matl Description
    Sheets("BasicData1").Select
    Range("B5").Select
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = MatlDescValue

i did not read your question correctly.

now here you go.  to put them all in one line see code below


 Sheets("BasicData1").Range("B5").Value = session.findbyid("wnd[0]/usr/tabsTABSPR1/tabpSP02/ssubTABFRA1:SAPLMGMM:2004/subSUB1:SAPLMGD1:1002/txtMAKT-MAKTX").Text 'Matl Description

Does it have to select B5?  Could I do something like:
Sheets("BasicData1").Range("B5") = MatlDescValue    ?  I just would like to eliminate lines that are not needed.

the last code i posted, is not selecting anything. it is using the ".Value" Property .

you cannot use Sheets("BasicData1").Range("B5") = MatlDescValue

instead you can use

Sheets("BasicData1").Range("B5").Value = MatlDescValue
