adding trailing zeros in notepad

Recommended Posts

THECARDNEXUS

I need to add numbers with varying number of decimal points from excel into notepad, and cant figure out how to get a consistent amount of decimal points.

Ie I want to pad to 3 decimal places so

1.4=1.400

1.35=1.350

Thoughts?

Try this:

$a = 25
ConsoleWrite(StringFormat('%.3f', $a))

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I am actually very noobish at autoit(probably only coded a thousand or so lines so far total), and I have never written code before. Basically, consoleWrite doesnt mean anything to me even after reading the functions etc. This is my script so far.

#include<excel.au3>

$filepath = @DesktopDir & "/autoit codes/test.xls"

$oExcel = _ExcelBookOpen($filepath)

$CBprice = _ExcelReadCell($oExcel,1,1)

$NFsell = $CBprice + _ExcelReadCell($oexcel,1,4)

$FoSell = $CBprice + _ExcelReadCell($oexcel,1,5)

$NFbuy = $CBprice + _ExcelReadCell($oexcel,1,6)

$Fobuy = $CBprice + _ExcelReadCell($oexcel,1,7)

Run("notepad.exe")

WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")

$combine = $NFsell & ";" & $FoSell & ";" & $NFbuy & ";" & $Fobuy

$combine2 = ConsoleWrite(StringFormat('%.3f', $combine))

Send($combine2)

Regards

Try:

Send(StringFormat('%.3f', $NFsell) & ";" & StringFormat('%.3f', $FoSell) & ";" & StringFormat('%.3f', $NFbuy) & ";" & StringFormat('%.3f', $Fobuy))

Works perfect thanks so much. Looked into it more I just missed that when looking over the stringformat page, a lot of whats in that page is greek to me at this point. Thanks again.

You might as well simply format the entire string using one StringFormat() command.

Local $NFsell = 1, $FoSell = 2.3, $NFbuy = 45.6, $Fobuy = .8

ConsoleWrite(StringFormat('%.3f', $NFsell) & ";" & StringFormat('%.3f', $FoSell) & "; " & StringFormat('%.3f', $NFbuy) & ";" & StringFormat('%.3f', $Fobuy) & @LF)
;or
ConsoleWrite(StringFormat('%.3f;%.3f; %.3f;%.3f\n', $NFsell, $FoSell, $NFbuy, $Fobuy))
