Open File

5 posts in this topic

I apoligize for this question but I do not feel as the API page. Has give me enough information.

I am trying to open a file in the current directory of my Script. But every time I do open it I get a blank file.

The error message box does not open.and when it gets to reading the CSV file I get nothing. am I doing something wrong?

#include"_CSVLib.au3"
#include <Array.au3>
$file = FileRead(@ScriptDir & "\DoctorMaping.csv")
If $file = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")
    Exit
EndIf
$Records = _CSVGetRecords ($file, -1, -1, 0)
_ArrayDisplay($Records, 'Information.')

I have also tried

FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\DoctorMaping.csv",0)

Not having the faintest clue as to what _CSVLib.au3 contains and what _CSVGetRecords exactly expects and does, doesn't help us much to help you.

Since the file is successfully read, the issue is with the above-mentionned function rather than with opening the file.

am I doing something wrong?

I searched for the thread and downloaded the file and, yes you are doing something wrong. Not reading the documentation (in this case the function header).

You give the $pFullPath param some file data when you are told:

$pFullPath  -   Path and filename of the csv file.

Also, look at the actual code, it's just doing a FileOpen() on $pFullPath, how do you expect FileOpen() to work on a the contents of the csv file? :huh2:

Also2:

;                   On Failure  -   $lRecords[0] = 0 and sets @error = 1 if open or read error
;                               -   $lRecords[0] = 0 and sets @error = 2 if no records found.

Checking @error might have given you a clue ;)

Also3:

Look at the code again. It never FileClose()'s the handle, so if you repeatedly uses the function you'll be unable to Open files eventually. Fix it yourself or download the updated _CSVLib_V1.3.au3

Also4:

You might want to post a link next time you ask about a more exotic udf, less "wtf is _CSVLib.au3" -posts then :alien:

Thank you very much for your assistance. I did not realize that it was the CSVLib that was messing up, or I would have posted a link. Actually I might even have caught the error my self.

This post is very helpful to me on using files with autoit.
