Help says:

********

wait Optional. Boolean value specifying whether the calling application has the focus before activating another. If False (default), the specified application is immediately activated, even if the calling application does not have the focus. If True, the calling application waits until it has the focus, then activates the specified application.

*******

Here's my code that doesn't work:

AppActivate "Supplier"
SendKeys "^a^c"
AppActivate "Microsoft Excel"


I think I need to do this wait thing so the application has the focus (and I'm not so sure what that means either) but I have no idea what the syntax should look like

This code:

AppActivate "Supplier"
SendKeys "^a^c%{tab}"

does work but won't if I add code after it.

If anyone has any suggesstions on what to do I would appreciate it.

Thanks.
