Excel and Hidden Rows

Recommended Posts

NeoWats

As you can see I'm new to the forum, but I have used Autoit for nearly two years for various work. My current problem is this:

I have a customer who sends me specs in an excel spreadsheet. It's always the same spreadsheet, the only difference is that they will hide the rows that don't effect the project that they want completed. I'm working on automating the process, but I can't tell if a row is hidden, which is restricting some of the automation. Any ideas on how to work around this?

That's easy ;)

Let's say column "A" is hidden. This code returns true if the column is hidden.

#include <excel.au3>
$oExcel = _ExcelBookOpen("C:\temp\test.xls")
ConsoleWrite($oExcel.Range("A1").EntireColumn.Hidden & @CRLF)
_ExcelBookClose($oExcel)

Alternative:

#include <Excel.au3>
Global Const $xlCellTypeConstants = 2
Global Const $xlCellTypeVisible = 12
$oExcel = _ExcelBookAttach("Test.xls", "filename")
$VisibleOnly = $oExcel.Application.Cells.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeConstants).SpecialCells($xlCellTypeVisible).Address(False, False)

$VisibleOnly will be the position from all the cells that contains value and are visible.
