I'm trying to make a script of sorts, to copy from the currently selected cell of Excel:Mac, then paste into a VMWare Windows 7 command window that's already open. I tried VBA with 'appactivate' to try to select the command window by name, then was gonna do sendkeys to paste: no joy yet (would work in windows, but never used much VBA in excel for mac). Thought maybe I'd try automator: doesn't work in the end with excel copy function, the the 'watch what I do' functions to select the command window, and alt-space, e, p, to paste in a windows command window. Tried going for an applescript spin-off of that and can't seem to active that boot camp window successfully (I'm running 'Unity' view as figured that'd help with my first method). I'm not used to any of the mac automator/applescript functions (even though I'm a mac user at home) so am a bit lost. I also don't know if I should name the thing to activate by window caption, VMWare, or what since it's running in a virtual machine. Any ideas or pointers in what direction I should be heading, or if this is an impossible feat?
