comment How do I insert a new row in Excel via the keyboard?
Alt, I, R seems faster for inserting a single row.

Was going to be my answer if it wasn’t already here; +1. But it’s worth noting that this is a sequence, not necessarily keys to be pressed simultaneously. You can type Alt, then I, then R and get the same effect – I tend to find this much easier since it’s more similar to typing.

Thank you, it works perfectly. Took me a it to figure out what you meant put where, but it works.

Ah, I think I see. I cannot test it right at this moment, but I believe this will work. I'll accept once I have confirmed that.

I didn't say what exactly I'm waiting for precisely because I am not interested in answers that try to explore those alternatives. At any rate, thank you for confirming my fears re: FOR /f; I was hoping someone would know of a workaround for that. Anyway, this answer does not help me because I cannot modify the script I'm running (such edits would just get wiped out when the script is updated, and I'm not authorized to push such a change), but I appreciate the information, so +1.

I'm not familiar enough with Windows scripting, but how well is that going to work when the first script is outputing multiple lines at separate instances. If the piped script runs as soon as it gets any input, it won't get the string. If it waits for the first script to terminate, that's just not going to happen because it doesn't (and shouldn't) terminate.

@IvanViktorovic Feel free to give an answer using that, but I would much prefer this just be a quick, simple piece of code I need, not extra dependencies I need to introduce to this. But if it's the best way, it's the best way.

No, this isn't even remotely what I need. The commands that I issue aren't commands in the first program, but rather separate batch scripts. They just use the connection established by the first program.
