Did you know that you can use VBScript in your post to launch other programs on your computer? The methods vary and I’m still learning them myself but I’ve pieced together a couple different methods to accomplish this, customized for the BobCAD posting engine. There is no credit due here, it’s fairly easy just to make them open. The trick is getting them to do something useful.
Here is a small code snippet you can try in your own post. Just paste this at the end of your post after all the scripting blocks:
2101. Read entire file after post.
'****** MS Excel Call
' Create The Excel Application Object.
Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
' Make Excel Visible Through The Application Object.
objExcel.Visible = True
' Set The Application Object To Allow Data To Be Added.
' Sets Row 2 Of The Spreadsheet For The Data Because Row 1 Contains The Header Info.
intRow = 2
' Sets The Column Name As "Machine Name" To Cell A1.
objExcel.Cells(1, 1).Value = "Machine Name"
Ok, I don’t have MS Office installed on this Laptop yet. Let me try to load it to make sure this works.
