Can Macro Express read HTML or other text?

Macro Express cannot read text. But it can locate certain words or phrases on a Web page or a document. To do this you would copy the text of the page to the clipboard. Normally a CTRL A will highlight the contents of the page. Then use the Clipboard Copy command. The next step is to use the If Clipboard Contains command. If the clipboard contains the text you are looking for, then have the macro take the appropriate action.

With this functionality you can have a macro quickly look for a specific word or phrase on a web page or document. If the word or phrase is found, you can take the appropriate action. If it isn’t found, go on to the next page.
