Remove embeded Excel, and add new one

Recommended Posts


Hello All,

I have a gui with tabs in it. I am trying to have one of the tabs have a excel spreadsheet in it. But what I am trying to figure out is how to remove the embeded object (so that I can add a new one to replace it).

I tried both of these, but they both don't remove it.

$oExcelDoc.Close (0) ; Close the excel workbook - Save prompt will not open



Here is my part of script....

$Spreadsheets = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Spreadsheets"); end tabitem definition

$FileName = 'C:\test1.xls'

if not FileExists($FileName) then
  Msgbox (0,"Excel File Test","Can't run this test, because it requires an excel file in "& $FileName)
;~   Exit

$oExcelDoc = ObjGet($FileName) ; Get an excel Object from an existing filename

if IsObj($oExcelDoc) then
;~     GUICreate ( "Embedded ActiveX Test", 640, 580, (@DesktopWidth-640)/2, (@DesktopHeight-580)/2 )
    $GUI_ActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj( $oExcelDoc, 15, 50 , 870 , 640 )

    With $oExcelDoc
        .CommandBars("Full Screen").Visible = False
        .CommandBars("Standard").Enabled = False
        .CommandBars("Formatting").Enabled = False
        .CommandBars("Control Toolbox").Enabled = False
        .CommandBars("Drawing").Enabled = False
        .CommandBars("Forms").Enabled = False
        .CommandBars("Worksheet Menu Bar").Enabled = False
        .Application.DisplayFormulaBar = False
;~ $oExcelDoc.Close (0)       ; Close the excel workbook - Save prompt will not open
