How To

Asked by BrandonGraf on 2010-02-02

I was wondering if you could tell me if there is any way to use this program to be able to input a name using the input(msg"")command, that could then search microsoft access for the name entered, and then copy the email address of that user and enter it into another program. I don't really know how I could make that happen. If you have a suggestion of a basic form I could use, or if there is another program entirely that you would recommend that would be great. Thanks in advance for any information.

Not possible in the moment, since you would need Sikuli with OCR-functionality (get textual information out of an image), so you can type() the text elsewhere.
I learned, they are working on that.

An intermediate solution could be (if you have access to the table and be able to use MS Access as such) to export the 2 columns as csv-file. This could be automated with Sikuli.
In Sikuli, you could search this file with basic python for the name you get by input(). you take the e-mail and type() it into the other app.

Can you help with this problem?
