Help setting up macro for tasks

Novakingwai 2,137 263 July 23, 2016 at 06:45 AM
I am looking to get a macro program. There is a form I do every few days. Basically I would need it to press Space Bar, Space Bar, Tab, Tab, then type "A1". Then pause so I can write what I need. Do this several times over, but each time changing the last section by 1. For example, It would then need to do A2, A3, etc. There are a few categories with different names, so it may jump to E1, or even a word like SECTION1.

Help please Smilie

AutoHotKey and AutoIt are two of the most common free programs for this type of thing. Simplest thing to do would be to map a key like ` to it types space space tab tab

What type of from is this? PDF, website, share point, etc? There may be some better application specific options.

Why do conservative politicians oppose conservation?
Have you ever stopped to think the long-term GOP immigration policy might be to make the United States of America a less desirable place to live than Mexico?

An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

The cell numbers had me thinking the same thing, in which case the built in macro functionality has potential. http://www.dummies.com/how-to/con...-2016.html
