Hi Nick,

We have hundreds of constants in AutoMate and would like to be able to provide list of Constant Names and Associated values in a Workbook to business process owners and/or review internally. There are no search functions available in Constants within AutoMate. Currently I have to open Windows registry to perform a search. e.g. Looking for which constants have a specific email address.

I have a workaround on this.  Created a batch file to export the registry to a text file and then use Automate to parse the file contents for the constant names.  Once you have the constant name, you can use the GetVarValueByVarName function to get the constant's value.  Then, the pairs are easy to write to CSV.  I didn't spend any time formatting it or doing native Excel.  But it works.

Hi Tracy,

Thanks for sharing this.  That's a great idea.  For future readers, the key is located here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AutoMate\AutoMate 10\Constants
