Working with EXCEL

Post by RudolfK » Thu Sep 27, 2018 10:47 am

What i want to do: open xslx-file, save the xslx and close EXCEL 2016.

This is my try:

Run application EXCEL with Filename as argument - THIS WORKS

Key sequence {LControlKey down}{Skey}{LControlKey up} - should save File, but doesn't work
Key sequence {LMenu down}{F4}{LMenu up} - should close EXCEL, but doesn't work.

Any ideas how it can work ?

Are you sure the shortcuts are assigned to a proper window/form? If they are not, the shortcuts may be sent elsewhere ;) Ideally, send them to main application window.
