Inconsistent Behavior
I have a macro that opens a report off a web site, copies the data to excel and then closes the report web page. It does this process 19 times using 2 functions.

The problem is that I receive the window not found error at different times in the macro. Sometimes I can run the macro through 17 of the reports. The next time I run the macro I can only get through 3 reports. Run it again and get through 15 of the reports.

I am trying to figure out why I receive this error and why at different times. Any ideas of what to look for?

I have slowed the macro done to spe 500.
I close the report window by name.
I always re-activate the menu window prior to selecting the report.

Thanks for any help.
I would like to see the macro.
The really odd thing is I can run these in debug mode. But once I am out of debog mode it stops at various places.

Here is the macro and the functions used.

1. I recommend to use window handles.
2. Remember that initial function's speed is 0. Maybe it runs too fast.
3. I think the function should wait for the report window, even if it waits while IE is busy.
