re SendKeys("%ep, 1")
I'm guessing that the keystrokes equivalent are [Alt] + Edit>Paste off the excel XP/2003 menu system.
I'm using a later version with the so called 'ribbon' which has replaced the old menu and no sign of any menu shotrcuts as before. Maybe it will still work. Otherwise I'll try [Ctrl]+[V] .. (^V)
gnubg can be opened & loaded with a gnubgid with a single command all under the control of the gnu app as per my OP - no danger of pasting stuff where it's not wanted if the app takes longer than expected to open. This way it does not matter how long it takes or how variable the time to open.
I will try the SendKeys as an experiment with gnu in anticipation of having to use that method when I get XG.
Gnu is versatile due to it's command panel - most things that you do on the GUI can also be done via a gnu command typed into the gnu command box or, better still for programing purposes, via an instruction to open a text file and read & execute a gnu command (as per my OP)
I was hoping that XG has a similar built in XG command method as gnu or something equivalent. Some way of sending commands to XG via the windows command line.
I'll try mailing Xavier with this specific question.
Many Thanks for your help
