I'm trying to use AutoIt from an external application to control the update of historical data.
I do CTRL-M to open the Data Manager and then control the mouse to select buttons to perform the update.
However every time I open and close the Data Manager, the location of the window moves slightly but enough to mean the mouse coordinates no longer work.

Is there a alternative/better way to achieve this that perhaps I am unaware of?
Or:
Is this something that can be fixed?

First and the most obvious, schedule the updates. The Data Manager can do it but you have to keep WL8 open.

Less obvious but not involving AutoIT is to launch WL8 with command line key /U to perform data update and /C to close the application afterwards. See Help > Command line Arguments. Simple and unattended.

P.S. To work around the behavior when new child windows are created (this is expected and not a bug), simply maximize the child window (e.g. Data Manager). This preference should be sticky.
