Excel UDF: Do I need have Ms-Excel Installed ?

5 posts in this topic

I'm going to try a excel UDF to create myself a small application.

This is the code:

#include <excel.au3>
global $file = @ScriptDir & "\excel.xls"
$oExcel = _ExcelBookNew()
_ExcelWriteCell($oExcel, "I Wrote to This Cell", 1, 1) ;Write to the Cell

MsgBox (0, "Exiting", "Press OK to Save File and Exit")
_ExcelBookSaveAs($oExcel, $file, "xls", 0, 1) ; Now we save it into the scriptdir directory; overwrite existing file if necessary
_ExcelBookClose($oExcel) ; And finally we close out

Instead of excel.xls, this code result nothing. Do I need a ms-excel installed? I only have Microsoft Office Excel VIEWER 2003 and Open Office 3.1 installed.

Thanks a lot :unsure:

Ther viewer can't write to files. You need to have the Excel application installed.

Dear GEOSoft,

Thanks for your reply. Is there other way except installing ms-excel ? Just copying/downloading files needed maybe?

Thanks!
