Step 5: Analyze the VBS script

Once you stop the recording a Visual Basic Script is created.
You can edit it in Notepad (or any other text editor).
Notice that the script has different sections:
1. A header.
2. Command lines with the data you entered.
3. Scroll lines.

If the SAPGUI screen was not maximized at the time of recording, you will see a line indicating the size. Example:
session.findById("wnd[0]").resizeWorkingPane 149,32,false

I recommend you change it to maximize the screen. That is, use this statement instead: session.findById("wnd[0]").maximize

Take note of the positions used to enter the data into each field and the scrolling that takes place.
