Saving the advanced search results from excel VBA

Post by Susan2019 » Sun Sep 22, 2019 4:16 am

First thank you to “Corwin - Tracker Sup” that got me started with his sample file

From this starting point, I have been able to activate the Advanced Criteria search locating a number of words within a folder of PDF documents.

I would then like to Save Results to a File in CSV format. As this option only seem to be available within the Options menu on the search pane. And I cannot find this command to assign a shortcut key or a way of navigating this submenu.

I’m using the Sendkeys as the search=”word1 word2” did not pick up the second word in the list.
But I happy for any advice.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Susan.

Currently in the Editor it is not possible to automate the openDoc > searchSomethingInDoc > saveResults operation. At the moment, via Editor's CommandLine( ... ns_ed.html), you may automate only the openDoc > searchSomethingInDoc operation.
