5 posts in this topic

Where do I find more doc regarding Excel functions?

Recently I was shown this line of code: $oExcel.Activesheet.Range("AW3").Formula

Where do I find more info for this kind of coding?

Have have seen all the "_excel..." functions but nothing for what is posted above.

Where can I donwload this (and what is it): #include <ExcelCOM_UDF.au3>

The _ExcelCOM UDF is an extended version of the Excel UDF which is part of AutoIt. Most of the functions are identical but the ExcelCOM UDF has some additional functions.

You can use the _Excel* functions as long as they provide what you need.

Then you have to get your feet wet with "real" programming ;)

The full Excel 2010 COM interface is documented here.

That's not exactly the history.

Locodarwin created _ExcelCOM_UDF.au3 and it was very popular. But he didn't have the time available to clean up the UDF and standardize it for inclusion with the AutoIt distribution. Other users created the standardized Excel.au3 UDF as a subset of the original functions, based on Locodarwin's work. The extra functions in _ExcelCOM_UDF were not standardized and may not work with current versions of AutoIt, since the ongoing maintenance is done on Excel.au3 instead.
