Need a hand for what seems (to me at least) to be a simple problem but, I can't seem to get it worked out. To date I've built one AS. Yes, a bit of a noob here... Here's the scenario: I have an excel sheet that has basic info in it, I need to search for the info and have it return the result plus 3 cells next to it. For example: Col A Col B Col C Col D ------- ------- -------- ------- WXYZ 22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199 1001 1) Run a script that opens a basic search box for a specific sheet, 2) Enter info (Will always be in Column A) to search 3) Dialog box of some sort returns info in Col A, B, C, D (like) WXYZ ------- 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206 1001 The excel sheet could easily become a text doc, if that would be easier. Would this be doable with an AppleScript? (Thus far, I've got the script to open the file...that's it) Thanks for any help.
