Help finding a program to record a bat file

Hi All,

So at work every day we have to open a program load a file "update" the file (click menu bar then update all) this opens a secondary screen that then needs the information verified and then click update.

I know this is not much to go on. But my really question is. Does anyone know a program that will allow me to click record then open the program do what i need to do close the program then click stop recording and then convert that recording to a .bat file? sort of like what the record in VBA does?

Or does anyone know another way I could do this?? just trying to make lift easier for the guys at work.

Welcome to Seven Forums Nomad01. You need a "macro" of sorts. You can do what you want with Autohotkey . You'd need to write a script, or modify an existing script. You'd need to know the particulars of what functions you do now manually. Shouldn't be a problem as you do these functions

There is a macro recorder of sorts

Macro recorder - Scripts - AutoHotkey Community

They have a dedicated forum as well

AutoHotkey Community - share scripts and functions, get answers to your programming questions

Otherwise, you'd want to research Macro recorders. There are free ones, but the best are pay I believe. A Guy

How to program WMC to record TV series NOT currently shown in Guide?
Let's say I want to set up my new WMC HTPC to record the series Downton Abbey or The Good Wife, both of which are currently on hiatus for new episodes. There doesn't seem to be any way to tell WMC that when the series re-starts with new programs, you want it to record them(?) This seems too...
