Firs of all, i'm sorry for my bad english, but i'm brazilian!

I've modified many functions of Excel.au3 to make it much more fast and created anothers functions

the function list is above:

Functions inside UDF:

_ExcelColumnLetter($iColumn)

_ExcelColumnNumber($sColumn)

_ExcelFormatR1C1ToA1($iRowFrom, $iColFrom, $iRowTo = "", $iColTo = "")

_ExcelFormatA1ToR1C1($sRange)

_ExcelReadSheetToArrayEX($oExcel, $iStartRow = 1, $iStartColumn = 1, $iRowCnt = 0, $iColCnt = 0, $iColShift = 0)

_ExcelPasteSpecial($oExcel, $sRange, $xPasteType = -4104, $xPasteSpecialOp = -4142)

_ExcelFormatPainter($oExcel, $sRangeFrom, $sRangeTo = 0, $xPasteType = -4104, $xPasteSpecialOp = -4142)

_ExcelWriteSheetFromArrayEx($oExcel, $aArray, $iStartRow = 1, $iStartColumn = 1, $iArrayRowStart = 0, $iArrayColStart = 0)

_ExcelWriteArrayEX($oExcel, $aArray, $iStartRow = 1, $iStartColumn = 1, $iArrayRowStart = 0, $iDirection = 0)

if someone wants to fix my specifications can be at ease!

in the attached file have a examples of functions!

Note:

functions that are written by other people and i just modified, i left specified within the UDF

I hope it is useful to you, it's much more fast than original functions!

Thanks a lot!

Examples:

#include 
#include 

;Generate an Array
Local $aArray[100][15]

For $i = 0 To 99
For $j = 0 To 14
$aArray[$i][$j] = "Line: " & $i + 1 & " - Col: " & $j + 1
Next
Next

;Create Excel Object
Local $oExcel = _ExcelBookNew()

;Write a 2d Array to Excel with default values (start in R1C1 cell and write all itens in array).
MsgBox(0,'',"Press OK to write an Array to Excel.")
_ExcelWriteSheetFromArrayEx($oExcel, $aArray)
$oExcel.ActiveSheet.Columns("A:O").AutoFit

;Format 2 First's lines.
MsgBox(0,'',"Press OK to format the 2 first Excel cells.")
With $oExcel.ActiveSheet.Range("A1:O100")
.Select
.HorizontalAlignment = 3
.Borders.LineStyle = 1
EndWith
$oExcel.ActiveSheet.Range("A1:O1").Interior.Color = 0xDAC0CC
$oExcel.ActiveSheet.Range("A2:O2").Interior.Color = 0xF0B00A
$oExcel.ActiveSheet.Range("A2:O2").Font.Bold = True


;Copy this style to all anothers Cells with _ExcelFormatPainter
MsgBox(0,'',"Press OK to copy the style of the 2 first's cells to to all anothers cells.")
_ExcelFormatPainter($oExcel, "A1:O2", 0, $xlPasteFormats, $xlPasteSpecialOperationNone)
$oExcel.ActiveSheet.Range("A1").Select


;Read all data to array
MsgBox(0,'',"Press OK to read all cells to and array.")
Local $aCells = _ExcelReadSheetToArrayEX($oExcel)
_ArrayDisplay($aCells)

;read 3 columns from Excel starting from 5nd and 50 rows starting from 1st row
MsgBox(0,'',"Press OK to read 50 rows and 3 cols and to and array.")
Local $aCells = _ExcelReadSheetToArrayEX($oExcel, 1, 5, 50, 3)
_ArrayDisplay($aCells)


_ExcelBookClose($oExcel)

;Create another Excel Object
Local $oExcel = _ExcelBookNew()

;Write an Array to Excel Starting from 50 row and 12 col of array and write it starting from 2nd row and 3rd col of excel
MsgBox(0,'',"Press OK to write an Array to Excel.")
_ExcelWriteSheetFromArrayEx($oExcel, $aArray, 2, 3, 50, 12)
MsgBox(0,'',"Press OK to Close.")
_ExcelBookClose($oExcel)

;Write an 1D Array
Local $oExcel = _ExcelBookNew()
Local $aArray[5] = ["LocoDarwin", "Jon", "big_daddy", "DaleHolm", "GaryFrost"]
MsgBox(0,'',"Press OK to write an Array to Excel.")
_ExcelWriteArrayEX($oExcel, $aArray) ; Write the Array Horizontally
_ExcelWriteArrayEX($oExcel,$aArray, 5, 1, 0, 1) ; Write the Array Vertically, starting on the 5th Row

MsgBox(0,'',"Press OK to Exit.")
_ExcelBookClose($oExcel)

MOST EXCELLENT!

I've already tried and tested, as you know golfinhu, this one: _ExcelReadSheetToArrayEX($oExcel, $iStartRow = 1, $iStartColumn = 1, $iRowCnt = 0, $iColCnt = 0, $iColShift = 0)

Its extremely fast, 10 x 's as fast actually, if not faster, and works GREAT! I'm not sure what corners you cut to increase the time, but man, it produces the same results, and 1000x faster!

I use it most every one of my apps I build for work. I can't think you enough. As you know, I requested you to do the same with the_ExcelWriteSheetFromArrayEx

But this is even better. So many newer faster functions to play with. I can't wait to get my hands on them! Its like its my birthday!

As soon as I get a chance to test the new ones above, I'll post back here and let you know. Thanks again!

Rename the downloa

@golfinhu

The ExcelEx in the Zip file seems broken and can't be extracted ?

rgds

ptrex

Rename the downloaded file to ExcelEx.rar.gz. Extracting that will result in a ExcelEX.rar file that will then extract correctly.

I downloaded the ExcelEX.rar file to Windows 7 today and was able to unrar/unzip it using 7Zip without problems.

I know, downloading compressed files off the forum still works for many of us, but as of a few months ago, not for some of us. Both my work and home machines have the problem, BrewManNH has a machine with the problem, and apparently ptrex too. if I searched around the forums I could probably find a dozen "Your zip file is bad!" comments related to the issue. Compressed files downloaded from the forum are coming down compressed a second time in the GZip format. I started a thread in the "chat" forum about it.

Edit: Using 7Zip may also be a work-around for the issue, as I only have WinZip and WinRar installed.

      Hi guys. I know this is a newbie topic, very newbie, but i've read a lot of stuff and still don't get it. I just need to copy something from Excel cell, paste this in other program, copy something in this program and paste in other Excel cell. Something like...
      Copy A2 Use some WindowActivate and MouseMove stuff and CTRL+C (not a problem) Go back to the Excel sheet Paste that content in C2 Then Copy A3 Use some WindowActivate and MouseMove stuff and CTRL+C (not a problem) Go back to the Excel sheet Paste that content in C3 ... And it goes on The problem is, how can i "communicate" with Excel and do this row change? Like A2 to C2 and A3 to C3 ... In a efficient way that can be done like hundreds of times.
      Very newbie question but still not understanding this.
       
      Ty guys.

      Dear members of the forum,
      I need to open excel files that may or may not need a password and finally move the files that needs password to manual queue.
      Is there a fastest way to do this?
       
      PS: I have a huge respect for the rules of this forum. I am not asking assistance to override any security measure. I just need to segregate the files that needs passwords.

      Hi guys,
      without including everything (unless you want it)
      I am copying data from a table in chrome and wanting to paste it into excel.
      Copying in Chrome works.
      I can paste it into the field i want by emulating goto -> ctrl V:
      WinActivate($dataload) WinWaitActive($dataload) Sleep(500) $oWorkbook1.Sheets("ItemReturn").Activate Sleep(500) $msg = "Measuring Sheet" conwrite() ttips2() Local Const $xlUp = -4162 With $oWorkbook1.ActiveSheet ; process active sheet $oRangeLast = .UsedRange.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeLastCell) ; get a Range that contains the last used cells $iRowCount = .Range(.Cells(1, 1), .Cells($oRangeLast.Row, "B")).Rows.Count ; get the the row count for the range starting in row/column 1 and ending at the last used row/column $iLastCell = .Cells($iRowCount + 1, "B").End($xlUp).Row ; start in the row following the last used row and move up to the first used cell in column "B" and grab this row number EndWith $NewStartCell = $iLastCell + 2 $msg = "moving to location" conwrite() ttips2() Sleep(250) Send("^g") WinWait("Go To") Sleep(100) Send("B" & $NewStartCell) Sleep(100) Send("{ENTER}") Sleep(500) Send("^v")  
      But, I want to use _excel_rangecopypaste, pasting from the clipboard
      _Excel_RangeCopyPaste($oWorkbook1.ActiveSheet, default, "B" & $NewStartCell,default,$xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats) If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeCopy Example 2", "Error pasting cells." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) however, this gives me error 4 , extended@:  -2147352567
      How can i fix this or find out how to debug this error?
       
      Thanks

      Hi.
      I try to figure out who is using a excel workbook which I can only open "read only". I use this code:
      #include <Array.au3> #include <Excel.au3> Local $sFile = ; excel file with path on a network drive Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open(True, True) Local $oTabelle = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sFile) Local $aUsers If IsObj($oTabelle) Then $aUsers = $oTabelle.UserStatus _ArrayDisplay($aUsers) EndIf If I am the one allowed to write to the excel file (I'm the first one who opened it) then I will get an array with myself:

      If my collegue opened the excel file first and I run the code I get the following error message:
      "H:\_Conrad lokal\Downloads\AutoIt3\_COX\Tests\test.au3" (9) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.: $aUsers = $oTabelle.UserStatus $aUsers = $oTabelle^ ERROR The excel file is on a network drive. Is that's the problem?
      Regards, Conrad

      Note: it seems that if User Account Control (UAC) is enabled then 7zip is unable to overwrite the destination file (using the same name).
      In this case, a possible solution would be to rename the original excel file before (see _PathSplit in help file).
      In my case i prefer just to disable UAC
