we are developing a software and one feature of that is to autosave the work of the user in any other application..example: the program will run in the background...if you are typing a document in word, or editing photos in photoshop the program will autosave your work at a specific time..
Then try the following. Adjust as you see fit....:)
'Set a reference to MS Word - Project_References_Microsoft Word Objects library
Dim appWord As New Word.Application
Dim wrdDoc As New Word.Document
Dim strFileName As String
Private Sub Command1_Click()
strFileName = "C:\MyDocNameHere.doc"
Set appWord = New Word.Application
appWord.Visible = True
Timer1.Enabled = True
Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
'Set timer to say 5000 (Every 5 seconds etc)
