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 hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

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.


$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)


WinWaitActive("Untitled - Notepad")

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

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

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)
ConsoleWrite(StringFormat('%.3f;%.3f; %.3f;%.3f\n', $NFsell, $FoSell, $NFbuy, $Fobuy))
