The term "execute a sprite" doesn't really have any meaning in GameMaker... do you mean playing a sprite's animation only once?

If so, you may be interested in the Animation End event. This event fires when the instance's sprite's animation has finished playing. Check whether the sprite is the one that's only supposed to play once, and if it is, change the sprite back to something else.


if u want to make a object play its animation and then disappear u can do :

if image_index > image_number - 1

if u want what tsuka mentioned then follow what he/she said :D

Edit: btw put that in the step event of the object
