WinRunner and MS Access / VBA
Hi WR Gurus - hope someone can help.
I'm looking to use WinRunner to automate some testing on an application written in VBA (MS Access). (The app's front end is written in VBA and the back-end in SQL) However, the GUI spy does not recognise any of the controls (buttons, labels, scrollbars, dropdowns, etc) and mostly sees the windows of the application as blank forms.
I can create test scripts based on mouse-clicks and keyboard inputs but this isn't good enough. I can also create virtual objects in WinRunner, but this is time-consuming and by no means ideal (as many buttons overlap each other on different tabs of the same form)
Does anyone know a solution to this - perhaps an add-in, or some kind of download I can get from Mercury or Microsoft that will enable WinRunner to be able to 'see' the objects correctly? Or possibly a change to how the application is developed/compiled (don't say use another language!). Any suggestions are appreciated.
Many thanks in advance for your help.

I don't forsee much luck with the VBA part. You might contact Mercury for ideas.
