Hi

I know you have a PY in the code builder but how do I execute an external PY file and record the output into MS, please?

You can run via the command line using the RunProgram command. To get the output you could pipe to a text file and then read the text file back?

Thanks. I didnt realise I can execute Python files like that but I have done a lot of batch files through MS before. Cool beans. :)

Still having problems with it. Its generating the error related to file system permissions but even running MS in admin mode isnt working.
