BOT and Excel macros - clicking on form to confirm


My company is trying to make a choice from UIPath and AutomationAnywhere, and I could really use some help in directing that choice, and I would do that by presenting our use case and asking if UIPath is capable of handling it.

We want to create automated testing bots for our Excel Pricing tool, so the bots with mostly fill in data in the pricing tool, and would catch potential errors.

My question would be this: on Workbook_Open we have a “Legal disclaimer” form with an Accept button that the user would need to click. As the form is inside the Workbook_Open macro, the bot I build in Automation Anywhere cannot go to the next step and click on the button, because from it’s point of view we are still at the first step op opening the file.

Is a UIPath bot capable of clicking on a modal form inside a macro to close it? If yes, what should I use.
