How to select a specific session to do SAP GUI Scripting activities inside it

Very often it is asked the question, how to select a specific session to do some SAP GUI Scripting activities inside it. The selection criterias are often the system ID (SID), a transaction code (TAC) or a program name. So I develop an example in VBScript resp. SAP GUI Scripting code, which offers these possibilities. It scans all connections with all sessions and select a specific session. The selection criterias in this example are properties of the session info object – here SID and TAC, but you can use what ever you want from the SAP GUI Scripting object hierarchy. If the SID is equal to NSP and the TAC is equal to SE80 the sub routine Action is called. In this sub routine you can store the part of your code from the SAP GUI Scripting recorder, which is below the object definition.

      Stefan,

      I'm hoping you can help with a problem that is somewhat similar. I'm trying to be able to have a pop up box that prompts you to select the session you want to use the script on. Once you click on the session then you will hit OK and SAP will then know the session you would like to run the script on.

      The code below works fine if I'm using a hotkey to launch the script.

      The problem comes when I'm trying to launch the script using HTA. I get an error saying "Object required: 'session'".

      How can I fix this? I need to be able to choose which sap session to run the script on while launching with HTA.

      It seems that running via HTA causes additional problems because the HTA window will steal focus from SAP.

      If Not IsObject(application) Then
         Set SapGuiAuto  = GetObject("SAPGUI")
         Set application = SapGuiAuto.GetScriptingEngine
      End If
      If Not IsObject(connection) Then
         Set connection = application.Children(0)
      End If
      msgbox "Please select a session to run the script on", vbSystemModal
      set session = application.ActiveSession

      Hello JT,

      I check your problem and as you say, the HTA window gets the focus, because you open a message box in the context of the HTA window and your last activity is to press the button of this message box, so the message box is in top of the window z-order and therewith the HTA window.

      But you can try a tiny trick to solve your problem: Switch via SendKeys and Alt+Tab to the next window in the z-order, your SAP session, which is activated as the last before.

      set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
      WshShell.SendKeys "&{TAB}"

      At the moment I don’t have the possibility to check this solution, so please let us know your result.

      Cheers
      Stefan

      Stefan,

      I get the error Object Required: "WScript". I did some googling and saw some results that said it won't work that way using HTA and I need to remove the Wscript from before CreateObject. However, now I'm getting the error Object Required: "Session". Below is the code that I last tried.

      If Not IsObject(application) Then
         Set SapGuiAuto  = GetObject("SAPGUI")
         Set application = SapGuiAuto.GetScriptingEngine
      End If
      If Not IsObject(connection) Then
         Set connection = application.Children(0)
      End If
      If Not IsObject(session) Then
         Set session    = connection.Children(0)
      End If
      If IsObject(WScript) Then
         WScript.ConnectObject session,     "on"
         WScript.ConnectObject application, "on"
      End If
      
      msgbox "Please select a session to run the script on", vbSystemModal
      
      set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
      WshShell.SendKeys "&{TAB}"
      
      set session = application.ActiveSession

      I also have tried a different approach and had some limited success. It would work for a couple of times to select the session that I clicked on, but then it would start defaulting back to the first session.

      Please see the code below.

      If Not IsObject(application) Then
         Set SapGuiAuto  = GetObject("SAPGUI")
         Set application = SapGuiAuto.GetScriptingEngine
      End If
      If Not IsObject(connection) Then
         Set connection = application.Children(0)
      End If
      If Not IsObject(session) Then
         Set session    = connection.Children(0)
      End If
      If IsObject(WScript) Then
         WScript.ConnectObject session,     "on"
         WScript.ConnectObject application, "on"
      End If
      
      msgbox "Please select a session to run the script on", vbSystemModal
      
      Set WScr = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 
      
      sTitle = Application.Connections.Item(0).Sessions.Item(0).findById("wnd[0]").text
      
      WScr.AppActivate(""& sTitle &"")
      
      
      set session = application.ActiveSession

      Hello JT,

      here a working solution with AutoItX, which is part from AutoIt scripting language, SendKeys from WScript.Shell doesn’t work.

      Your second solution doesn’t work, because you are using
      Connections.Item(0).Sessions.Item(0)
      which means Connection(0) and Session(0)
      and this isn’t what you want.

      Cheers

      the above coding worked for couple of times but after that, When i try to run the above code it displays a error in first line (Dim SAPguiAPP As SAPFEWSELib.GuiApplication) as " User-defined type not defined"

       

       

      Please, help me.

      Hello Raakesh,

      thanks for your comment.

      It is necessary to bind sapfewse.ocx in your VBA project via menu Extras and References.

      You can find sapfewse.ocx in the directory C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP\FrontEnd\SAPgui.

      Cheers

      Hello Aleksandar D,

      try the /n in front of your transaction code:

      session.findById(“wnd[0]/tbar[0]/okcd”).Text = “/nva05”

      This terminates the current transaction, and starts a new transaction.

      Or, if you want to open a new session, /o.

      Best regards
      Stefan

      In fact /N is not part of scripting, it's part of SAP GUI, long before scripting was introduced. For more information see 26171 - Possible entry values for command field (OK-code)

      Hi

      Stefan Schnell

      I'm relative new to SAP Scripting. I wonder if you can help me with your script. I want to run your script with the SAP code in three windows: T-code: COOIS, MB51 and MB52. So when I run the script it will find the windows and run the codes in each window. Hope you can help.

      Hello Søren,

      welcome in the world of SAP GUI Scripting. Sure can I help you, as attachment two scripts.

      The first script starts three different transaction codes in three new sessions. Then it starts an independent script, with the connection and session number as arguments. Here you can also start, dependently from your transaction code, different scripts. On this way you achieve parallelism.

      Hello Stefan,

      Is there a way to select active session in gui scripting when there are multiple modes which include the same transaction ?

      thanks

      Ziv

      Hello Ziv,

      in my opinion yes. Loop over the sessions and store the information in an array. Sort the array, e.g. with bubblesort, and find the double entries.

      Best regards

      Hi Stefan,

      I am very new to SAP scripting.

      Appreciate if you could help me out on this.

       

      I was running your script, however it got the error below.

      What can I do about it ?

       

      Run Time Error 13, Type Mismatch for below bolded line

      What could be the error ?

      Dim session

      Set session = GetSession("Z2L", "SE16")
      Action session

      End Sub

      Hello Leo,

      it seems that your double quotes are not correct.

      Set session = GetSession(“Z2L”, “SE16”)

      Set session = GetSession("Z2L", "SE16")

      Use Ascii 34 as double quote.

      Best regards
      Stefan

      Hi Stefan,

       

      Thanks for highlghting that.

      I have a question on this script.

      As it would choose the SID and TAC that currently running.

       

      Is that possible for it to choose the selected SID only but not TAC ?

      So that any sessions of the SID will be choosen to run the script but not on specific TAC

       

      Thanks in advance.

      Hello Leo,

      sure is that possible. You can find an approach on top of this messages. Delete the code sequences for the TAC and use SID only.

      Best regards
      Stefan

      Dear Stefan,

      I`m sorry, I don't quite get that.

      Could you help me point out which area I should remove ? So that only SID is being screened before attached the connection.

      Below is my code.

      Much appreciate with your help.
