Hi all,

This is my very first post to the AutoMate forums as I am a new user.

I'm trying to run an Access macro from an AutoMate workflow. If I set the Logon properties of the task in the Workflow Designer to run as Logged on user, the macro runs - I can see the Access instance open, run, then close. If I set the "When workstation is logged on:" property to "Background user (defined below)", the macro seems to run, AutoMate will report a success but it doesn't really run. In fact, the msaccess.exe instance remains running per Task Manager.

I can configure this in Task Scheduler with the same user that I'm setting the background user to in Automate and it will run fine, logged on or logged off.

What am I doing wrong? I am running BPA Server v9.
