Working with Excel

5 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I'm new to AutoIt so I hope my question isn't too newby for someone to answer :D

I have a script that switches between an Excel spreadsheet and another program. It copies data from Excel to the clipboard, Alt-Tabs to the other program, navigates a few menus, pastes the data, hits a few buttons, then Alt-Tabs back. It does this continuously (navigating down a list in Excel) until manually ended with a hotkey.

It does all of this using the Send command, but I'm sure there's a better way! My question is: how can I program my script to store the Excel list in an array, so that it doesn't have to copy/paste and alt-tab so much?

Thanks!

Please have a look at the help file: User Defined Function Reference -> Excel Management

This should get you started.

Is that section available in the online version here? http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/ I can't seem to find it.

For convoluted reasons I can't use the downloadable help file on my current computer :/
