write multiple columns and rows to csv

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

From a multiple column and row array, I am trying to write to a CSV file where each column is seperated by a "," and each row is seperated by a @crlf

here's what I have so far.. and i understand why its putting it all in the same first column.. but I cant figure out how to incorporate the new column at the

uggh brain freeze!!

here's an example array that illustrates what I am trying to do - essentially i want the csv to look like the arraydisplay (columns and rows matching up)

any help is appreciated!

#include <array.au3>

$output_file = @ScriptDir & "\Output.csv"

DeleteFile($output_file)

Local $results_array[2][3]

$results_array[0][0] = "Name"
$results_array[0][1] = "Team"
$results_array[0][2] = "PA"

$results_array[1][0] = "bob"
$results_array[1][1] = "mets"
$results_array[1][2] = "2%"

_ArrayDisplay($results_array)

$rows = UBound($results_array) - 1
$columns = UBound($results_array, 2)

For $x = 0 To $columns - 1
    For $y = 0 To $rows
        FileWrite($output_file, '' & @CRLF & _
                $results_array[$y][$x] & ",")

    Next
Next

ShellExecute($output_file)


Func DeleteFile($file)

    $file_usage = FileOpen($file, 1)

    If $file_usage = -1 Then
        MsgBox(0, @ScriptName, $file & " is in use." & @CRLF & _
                'Please close it before continuing.')
        Exit
    EndIf

    FileClose($file_usage)

    If FileExists($file) Then
        FileDelete($file)
    EndIf

EndFunc   ;==>DeleteFile

This works.

#include <array.au3>

$output_file = @ScriptDir & "\Output.csv"

DeleteFile($output_file)

Local $results_array[2][3]

$results_array[0][0] = "Name"
$results_array[0][1] = "Team"
$results_array[0][2] = "PA"

$results_array[1][0] = "bob"
$results_array[1][1] = "mets"
$results_array[1][2] = "2%"

_ArrayDisplay($results_array)
$rows = UBound($results_array) - 1
$columns = UBound($results_array, 2) -1
#cs
For $x = 0 To $columns - 1
    For $y = 0 To $rows
        FileWrite($output_file, '' & @CRLF & _
                $results_array[$y][$x] & ",")

    Next
Next
#ce
For $i = 0 To $rows
    $sLine = ""
    For $j = 0 To $columns
        $sLine &= $results_array[$i][$j] & ","
    Next
    FileWriteLine($output_file, StringTrimRight($sLine, 1))
Next
ShellExecute("notepad.exe"," " & $output_file)


Func DeleteFile($file)

    $file_usage = FileOpen($file, 1)

    If $file_usage = -1 Then
        MsgBox(0, @ScriptName, $file & " is in use." & @CRLF & _
                'Please close it before continuing.')
        Exit
    EndIf

    FileClose($file_usage)

    If FileExists($file) Then
        FileDelete($file)
    EndIf

EndFunc   ;==>DeleteFile

I have had trouble in the past getting Excel to open files using ShellExecute()

not so brilliant. The major change from yours was FileWriteLine() instead of FileWrite() and you needed the -1 for $columns

EDIT:

Actually here it is using FileWrite()

#include <array.au3>

$output_file = @ScriptDir & "\Output.csv"

DeleteFile($output_file)

Local $results_array[2][3]

$results_array[0][0] = "Name"
$results_array[0][1] = "Team"
$results_array[0][2] = "PA"

$results_array[1][0] = "bob"
$results_array[1][1] = "mets"
$results_array[1][2] = "2%"

_ArrayDisplay($results_array)


$rows = UBound($results_array) - 1
$columns = UBound($results_array, 2) -1
#cs
For $x = 0 To $columns - 1
    For $y = 0 To $rows
        FileWrite($output_file, '' & @CRLF & _
                $results_array[$y][$x] & ",")

    Next
Next
#ce
Local $sOut = ""
For $i = 0 To $rows
    $sLine = ""
    For $j = 0 To $columns
        $sLine &= $results_array[$i][$j] & ","
    Next
    $sOut &= StringTrimRight($sLine, 1)
Next
FileWrite($output_file, StringStripWS($sOut, 2))
ShellExecute("notepad.exe"," " & $output_file)


Func DeleteFile($file)

    $file_usage = FileOpen($file, 1)

    If $file_usage = -1 Then
        MsgBox(0, @ScriptName, $file & " is in use." & @CRLF & _
                'Please close it before continuing.')
        Exit
    EndIf

    FileClose($file_usage)

    If FileExists($file) Then
        FileDelete($file)
    EndIf

EndFunc   ;==>DeleteFile
