Having trouble initializing Gridview object in VBA

having trouble initializing  Gridview  get error 619 control could not be found!

here is the code. I'm just starting to learn about scripting!

Private Sub Test_SAP_Click()

Dim GridView As Object
'On Error GoTo Erreur

'Erreur 614 - Session n'est pas ouverte
'Erreur 619 - Pas dans le menu principal

If Not IsObject(SapAPP) Then
   Set SapGuiAuto = GetObject("SAPGUI")
   Set SapAPP = SapGuiAuto.GetScriptingEngine
End If
If Not IsObject(SAPConn) Then
   Set SAPConn = SapAPP.Children(0)
End If
If Not IsObject(session) Then
   Set session = SAPConn.Children(0)
End If
If IsObject(WScript) Then
   WScript.ConnectObject session, "on"
   WScript.ConnectObject SapAPP, "on"
End If
session.FindById("wnd[0]").resizeWorkingPane 150, 31, False
session.FindById("wnd[0]/tbar[0]/okcd").Text = "cn53n"
session.FindById("wnd[0]").SendVKey 0
session.FindById("wnd[0]/usr/ctxtCN_PROJN-LOW").Text = "P-2017"
session.FindById("wnd[0]/usr/ctxtCN_NETNR-LOW").Text = "1234"
session.FindById("wnd[0]/usr/ctxtCN_NETNR-LOW").SetFocus
session.FindById("wnd[0]/usr/ctxtCN_NETNR-LOW").CaretPosition = 7
session.FindById("wnd[0]/tbar[1]/btn[8]").press
session.FindById("wnd[0]/usr/cntlALVCONTAINER/shellcont/shell").CurrentCellColumn = "LST_ACTDT"
session.FindById("wnd[0]/tbar[0]/btn[15]").press
Set GridView = session.FindById("wnd[0]/usr/cntlALVCONTAINER/shell") ' <<<<<<<<< This line gives the error!



MsgBox "Extraction compléted OK !"

Exit Sub

The code work when I execut the script  but just has a problem with the gridview.

I want to extract the data from the script and stuff it in an access database!

Thanks

Is "cntlALVCONTAINER/shell" supposed to point to a different, separate shell than "cntlALVCONTAINER/shellcont/shell" within the same ALVCONTAINER?

If not, that may be all it is and switching the last line to match the previous call to the same control should help.

I had to remake the script file 2-3 times, but fianlly got one that worked , so you were correct in assuming the
shell text was wrong!

Would you know of any good gridview tutorials or documentation describing these methods preferable with examples!


Thanks for the heads up!
