      Thanks for this! I am just starting to learn some coding with the hopes of automating some tedious tasks and this gave me a really great breakdown of what is possible and gives me a much better idea of what I would actually have to do. Great video.

      The auto email is not working for me although I did as shown in the video. I was told that one should avoid using gmail, because it is a highly secured server and it is quite complex to make it work. In fact, most if not all examples on the Internet demonstrating how to send an email with a Gmail server do not work

      Hi newbie here. I'm trying to use pyautogui to automate saving excelfile. apologies if im not using proper programming vocabulary. So here it is. I declared tday as date today & tdelta to 1. then i created a tdate=tday-tdelta which just minus 1 day from today. Then i declared FILE_NAME as the path with the filename itself with the date. so if today is April 7, 2021 the filename should look like DATA_2021-04-06.csv. The problem is when i try saving it. and executing the pyautogui.typewrite(FILE_NAME). it just types in everything in text. This is the filename created "DATA_ + tdate +.csv . It looks as if tdate isn't seen as a variable. Rather it is seen as a text. I placed + + in between the variable tdate. but still its being saved as a text. Do you have any idea on this or a workaround or do i have wrong script. any sugestion would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

      #CREATING DATE -1

      tday=datetime.date.today()

      tdelta=datetime.timedelta(days=1)

      tdate=tday-tdelta

      #SAVING

      pyautogui.hotkey('Ctrl', 's')

      pyautogui.hotkey('enter')

      pyautogui.press('right')

      pyautogui.press('down', presses=5)

      pyautogui.hotkey('enter')

      pyautogui.click(202, 503)

      FILE_NAME = 'C:UsersDesktopNew folder(3)DATA_' + tdate + '.csv'

      pyautogui.typewrite(FILE_NAME)
