thanks a lot for the quick response.
Now please sit down I'll tell you what happend;-)...
You can believe the following; my diploma in applied computer science didn't come to my by christmas....
- the macro didn't run on my machine with version 11.20
- updated to 12.20 - didn't run either.
Computer's uptime is actually 7 days. Running XP Prof (Enterprise Licensed). Fully patched by Enterprise solution. McAfee Enterprise 8.0 (turned on /off - no differerence).
Also running (and open in parallel) MS Outlook, Firefox, Windows Powershell, Netware Aministrator (yes, Novell available too), Total Commander, MS DesktopSearch, MS SMS (SystemManagementService) a.s.o.
Now the Chrismas Wonder:
From Home in the evening, I connected per MSTSC* to the Computer (at work) to check without McAfee to have a good sleep
And my bad macro ran correctly! Without failures...
Even with turned on McAfee (<- the candidate for some strange errors - sometimes).
This morning, back here. Checked again MSTSC from the second PC on same switch. Runs OK also...
But with failures on the PC itself!
That was reproduceable
every time via MSTSC and directly on the pc...
Following colleagues' advice to close all other (FF, Outlook, DosBox, Netware, PShell a.s.o.). UEdit was the only app. running.
Till then, the macro is working correctly... I can't reproduce errors any more.
Doesn't care if on the machine itself, or via MSTSC. no failures.
So I can now check your macro too. Some stuff in it is new for me. Didn't know the loops available. thanks.
Actually, after your macro ran I have to open a new tab to paste the stuff.
In the clipboard, the results are includes the "(" and "@", but I'll make the best out of the two.
So I'm grateful for the initial aid.
I think we'll meet here again.
Nice Weekend and best regards.
greetings from cologne !
