Robert/Rob

Cracked it ! Thankyou for your help.

For anyone intersted the solution was as follows:

I did Tools - References and added Business Objects, then the following piece of
code did the trick:

Sub RunBusinessObjects
    Dim BO As busobj.Application
    Dim PathRBS as String

    PathRBS = "C:\Program Files\Rbs\Bo4\"

    Shell (PathRBS & "BUSOBJ.EXE -nologo -user CARRING -pass CARRING")

    Application.Wait Now + TimeValue("00:00:20")

    Set BO = CreateObject("BusinessObjects.Application")

    Rest of code....

End sub

Cheers
Alasdair

Go to Tools-References and find the one you want to check-on.

There should be a Business Objects one in your list...

(allows you to do Dim BO as BusinessObjects.Application if you wanted)

I'm not sure what you mean by adding Business Objects to references ? Is
this
something that has to be loaded/installed and if so how's it done ?

I would hazard a guess that your test worked because Outlook is a Microsoft
application ?

Alasdair

Just had a go myself with this code...

Public Sub tester()
    Dim ob As Object
    Set ob = GetObject("", "Outlook.application")
    MsgBox ob.Application.Name
End Sub

It seems to work although outlook is not visible...
Did add Business Objects to your references (even though you're using
Object)?

Hi Robert,

I tried the following:

Sub OLE ()
    Dim Escribe
    Dim BO As Object


    Escribe = Shell("C:\Program Files\BO4\BUSOBJ.EXE -nologo -user USERNAME
-pass PASSWORD")

    Set BO = GetObject(, "BusinessObjects.Application")

End Sub

Unfortunately, I get a Runtime Error '429'    "ActiveX component can't
create
object"

Am I doing something wrong ?

Cheers
Alasdair

Alasdair,

Perhaps you could try starting the app as before with Shell and then using
GetObject afterwards to get the reference you want?

Worth a try.

Hi Wiemer,

I tried the following:

        Set BO = CreateObject("BusinessObjects.Application")
        SendKeys "PASSWORD" & "{ENTER}", True

However, the "log-in" screen appears before the code gets
to the SendKeys line ?

Any suggestions ?

Alasdair

Folks,

I have a problem when I attempt to run an application called "Business
Objects",
using OLE Automation.

CreateObject("BusinessObjects.Application") works fine, but I get a screen
which
asks for a user name and password. Does anyone know how I can
programatically
pass these arguments ? Currently I'm having to enter these manually when the
screen appears and then my following code works well. However, I dont want
the
end users to have to enter the information everytime the macro is run.

I have used the Shell function in the past to run "Business Objects" in the
past
and I can pass the username and password quite successfully, but then I
can't
control the application, (unless I've missed something).

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as ever.

Cheers
Alasdair
