Mutliple monitor problem with FindImagePos

We have discovered an issue where if the window we want to scan for a needle bitmap is not on the primary display but rather on say the right hand display then the image is not found.

Re: GetControlText not returning any value

Without using the vbeval function is there a way to format the size of an excel column? I have a script which creates a spreadsheet based on oracle data but then it has to save it...

Scheduling issue

When you have two scripts open and you set the schedule for one it gets saved to both apparently.
