Reading Excel/Word Signature Lines

Hi all,

Currently looking at building some automation to read Excel/Word Signature Lines (using the signature feature, not text based), and can’t see any obvious solutions to this. Not looking for OCR to read the actual name, although that’s a possibility in the future, mainly just looking to check for existence of one being there and completed, so I could also possible read other elements of the Excel/Word doc which confirm the entry of a signature.

Has anyone had any experience of this? If not I’ll have a play and report back, just didn’t want to reinvent the wheel :slight_smile:



This could work it seems, does anyone have anything more elegant?

<wnd app='excel.exe' cls='XLMAIN' /> <wnd cls='MsoCommandBar' title='Status Bar' /> <wnd cls='MsoWorkPane' title='Status Bar' /> <wnd aaname='Status Bar' cls='NetUIHWND' /> <ctrl name='Status Bar' role='property page' /> <ctrl name='Signatures On' role='push button' />
