I will try to explain this the best I can from the information a user gave me.
So apparently he has a macro on Excel 2016 that runs which fixes a raw .xlsx file by formatting it to the end users specifications. So to break it down a program outputs a .xlsx in raw format then he opens the raw .xlsx file on his computer and runs the macro to fix the formatting.
The question we have is can we automate this process in task scheduler or something similar to run the macro on the raw .xlsx file on someone's computer or a server? Most likely the user will not have Excel open because this will occur around 5 am when no one is working.
(Program outputs .xlsx to network drive > user's computer or server runs the automated macro to the format data > end user is able to use the output.)
Thanks for helping!
