Work on Excel file without Office preinstalled

Recommended Posts

VAG

I would like to access Excel file through AutoIT script. I have read about the <Excel.au3> in help document. But it requires MS office preinstalled on the system. My objective is to distribute the script to systems without MS Office preinstalled.

Is there any other way to do it? I heard about the usage of SQL to do it. But the <SQLite.au3> help document does not provide direct excel access example. Can anyone show me a simple example on this?

Thanks

Something like this ?

Const $adOpenStatic = 3
Const $adLockOptimistic = 3
Const $adCmdText = 0x0001 
Global $s_Filename=FileGetShortName("C:\files.xls") 
Global $s_Tablename = "[Sheet1$]" 

; Initialize COM error handler 
$oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc")

; Source XLS data
$objConnection = ObjCreate("ADODB.Connection")
$objRecordSet = ObjCreate("ADODB.Recordset")
$objConnection.Open ("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
                "Data Source="&$s_Filename&";" & _
                "Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=Yes;"";")
$objRecordSet.Open ("Select * FROM"& $s_Tablename & "Order by 1 Asc" , $objConnection, $adOpenStatic, $adLockOptimistic, $adCmdText) 
    

Do 
    ConsoleWrite ($objRecordSet.Fields(0).value &@CR) ; + 1 because it is 0 based
    $objRecordSet.MoveNext()
Until $objRecordSet.EOF()

$objConnection.Close
$objConnection = ""
$objRecordSet = ""

    
Func MyErrFunc()
  $HexNumber=hex($oMyError.number,8)
  Msgbox(0,"COM Test","We intercepted a COM Error !"       & @CRLF  & @CRLF & _
             "err.description is: "    & @TAB & $oMyError.description    & @CRLF & _
             "err.windescription:"     & @TAB & $oMyError.windescription & @CRLF & _
             "err.number is: "         & @TAB & $HexNumber              & @CRLF & _
             "err.lastdllerror is: "   & @TAB & $oMyError.lastdllerror   & @CRLF & _
             "err.scriptline is: "     & @TAB & $oMyError.scriptline     & @CRLF & _
             "err.source is: "         & @TAB & $oMyError.source         & @CRLF & _
             "err.helpfile is: "       & @TAB & $oMyError.helpfile       & @CRLF & _
             "err.helpcontext is: "    & @TAB & $oMyError.helpcontext _
            )
  SetError(1)  ; to check for after this function returns
Endfunc
