Excel Chart

2 posts in this topic

Here's an example script to make a nice looking excel chart with autoit. Enjoy!

#include <Excel.au3>
;open excel file
$oExcel = _ExcelBookNew()
;create data
_ExcelWriteCell($oExcel, "10/01/2011", 1, 1)
_ExcelWriteCell($oExcel, "10/02/2011", 2, 1)
_ExcelWriteCell($oExcel, "10/03/2011", 3, 1)
_ExcelWriteCell($oExcel, "10/04/2011", 4, 1)
_ExcelWriteCell($oExcel, "10/05/2011", 5, 1)
_ExcelWriteCell($oExcel, "10", 1, 2)
_ExcelWriteCell($oExcel, "23", 2, 2)
_ExcelWriteCell($oExcel, "15", 3, 2)
_ExcelWriteCell($oExcel, "20", 4, 2)
_ExcelWriteCell($oExcel, "34", 5, 2)
;Make the chart
CreateChart($oExcel, 1, "My Title", 74, "A6:I20", "=Sheet1!R1C1:R5C1", "=Sheet1!R1C2:R5C2", "Value 1", "Date", "Stats")
; note: if $DataName and $DataRange are an array, multiple data lines can be drawn on graph.
Func CreateChart(ByRef $oExcel, Byref $Worksheet, ByRef $Title, ByRef $ChartType, ByRef $SizeByCells, ByRef $XValueRange, Byref $DataRange, $DataName, $XTitle, $YTitle)
$PlotBy = 2
$oSheet = $oExcel.Worksheets ($Worksheet)
Local $oChartRange;- The range where you want the chart
Local $oNewChart ;- The ChartObject itself
$oChartRange = $oSheet.Range($SizeByCells)
$oNewChart = $oSheet.ChartObjects.Add($oChartRange.Left, $oChartRange.Top, $oChartRange.Width, $oChartRange.Height)
$oChart = $oNewChart.Chart
$oChart.ChartType = $ChartType
;_ExcelWriteCell($oExcel, '=""', 1, 1) ; A1 must contain something
$oChart.SetSourceData ($oExcel.Worksheets(2).Range("A1:A1"), $PlotBy )
$oChart.HasTitle = 1
$oChart.Axes(1).HasTitle = 1
$oChart.Axes(2).HasTitle = 1
$oChart.Axes(1).AxisTitle.Characters.Text = $XTitle
$oChart.Axes(2).AxisTitle.Characters.Text = $YTitle
$oChart.HasDataTable = 1
$oChart.ChartTitle.Characters.Text = $Title ;- set name of chart
If $oChart.SeriesCollection.Count = 0 Then
;give an error "Both $DataRange & $DataName must be same type"
if (IsArray($DataName) And not(IsArray($DataRange))) Or (not(IsArray($DataName)) And IsArray($DataRange)) Then
  MsgBox(4096, "", "Both $DataRange & $DataName must be same type")
if IsArray($DataRange) Then
  for $i = 1 to 5
   with $oChart.SeriesCollection($i)
    .Name = $DataName[$i] ;- set name of values
    .XValues = $XValueRange ; X values ;R=row, C=colunm  
    .Values = $DataRange[$i]
  with $oChart.SeriesCollection(1)
   .Name = $DataName  ;- set name of values
   .XValues = $XValueRange ; X values ;R=row, C=colunm
   .Values = $DataRange

Unfortunately your script doesn't work for me at all.

When I run your exact example I get

C:\Temp\test2.au3(24,169) : ERROR: CreateChart() previously called with Const or expression on ByRef param(s).
Func CreateChart(ByRef $oExcel, Byref $Worksheet, ByRef $Title, ByRef $ChartType, ByRef $SizeByCells, ByRef $XValueRange, Byref $DataRange, $DataName, $XTitle, $YTitle)
C:\Temp\test2.au3(20,119) : REF: first call to CreateChart().
CreateChart($oExcel, 1, "My Title", 74, "A6:I20", "=Sheet1!R1C1:R5C1", "=Sheet1!R1C2:R5C2", "Value 1", "Date", "Stats")
C:\Temp\test2.au3 - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

If I remove all ByRef in the function header I get:

>Running:(\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3_x64.exe "C:\Temp\test2.au3"  
C:\Temp\test2.au3 (35) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:
$oChart.SetSourceData ($oExcel.Worksheets(2).Range("A1:A1"), $PlotBy )
$oChart.SetSourceData ($oExcel.Worksheets(2)^ ERROR
->17:55:25 AutoIT3.exe ended.rc:1

Could you please modify the example script so it runs without errors?

I run AutoIt and Office 2010.

      I woud like to know how i can handle my Problem.
      I have a Excel Data with 362 random numbers.
      For Example:
      1166642335374 1172899897343
      this numbers are a part of the filepath ...example
      as u can see its the first number of the Excel data. After the first 4 numbers it shoud make a "_" than another 5 "_"
      This is my first question. How can i handle this to make it Shell execute.
      Second question:
      If i am in the path.
      For Example:
      the code shoud search for specific PDF Files.
      They are named like: 0050569E364B1ED79B900F73E62660EC.pdf
      the first 15 letters are always the same
      when he found this data he has to copy it on a Folder on the Desktop.
      (There can also be 2 or 3 pdfs in one Folder with this letters)
      Please give me some help :-)
