Macro pauses and then resumes on mouse click

Post by RH2000 » Sun Apr 17, 2011 4:29 pm

I've recorded the following macro to automate saving in a file historical prices for 3 companies. When I play the macro, I get the 2 first lines executed (first file), but then the macro does not continue until I click the mouse, no matter what even going to another site. Then it is executing the next 2 lines of the code (file 2) and pauses again, till I'm doing the click thing again. I need to get many stock quotes so the process is annoying.
