View Full Version : Solved: A quick Sendkey question

03-22-2009, 10:01 PM
How can I Sendkey a particular CELL from an excel spreadsheet into a text box on and IE form?

I know sendkeys aren't reliable and this form is gigantic and it's all be filled out with getelementbyTagName statements....works perfect...but this one text box is inside of a javascript function that can't be called properly.

I need to Sendkey a cell from my worksheet into the text box on the IE form.

Something like:

SendKeys ActiveSheet.Cells(11, H)


Sendkeys Workbooks("WP.xls").Worksheets("Data").Range("B4")

or can you SendKey a variable somehow?

Does anyone know how to do this?

I think it's tougher because I want it to send those keys into an IE form and not an excel spreadsheet.

Your job is to ensure the form element has the focus and that IE is the active window. Then you can use SENDKEYS:

Sendkeys Workbooks("WP.xls").Worksheets("Data").Range("B4").Value
