Excel XML UDF v1.-1 [UPDATE 19/10/2012]

Recommended Posts

Update :

Version 1.0.0.1
Optimized whole code, added redim step var.

Hi,
I had to create Excel files for my needs, but I wondered how to do it because xlsx files are not raw editable; so I searched for a way do it.

Excel can open multiple files type, and the XML is a good way to do it so here it is.

It creates an Excel XML file, with which you will be able to :
-Create Rows
-Create Cells and set it's color
-Set column width
-Set global text horizontal align
-Set XML author
-Set XML creation date
-Set XML compagny

And of course you can easily add features.

Here is an example :

#include "Excel_XML.au3"

$iRow = _ExcelXML_Row_Add()

_ExcelXML_Column_SetWidth(1, 100)
_ExcelXML_Cell_Add($iRow, "Row 1, Cell 1")

_ExcelXML_Column_SetWidth(2, 200)
_ExcelXML_Cell_Add($iRow, "Column width set to 200px")

$iRow = _ExcelXML_Row_Add()
$iCell = _ExcelXML_Cell_Add($iRow, "Cell color red")
_ExcelXML_Cell_SetColor($iCell, 0xFF0000)

_ExcelXML_Cell_Add($iRow, "Excel XML UDF")

$hFile = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\Excel_XML test.xml", 2)
FileWrite($hFile, _ExcelXML_Assemble())
FileClose($hFile)

_ExcelXML_Destroy()

And what you are waiting for : Excel_XML.au3

Enjoy !

@JScript

You're welcome ! :)

I have some ideas, but It will take time to realize them, and I have not so much time for the moment.

I have not tested your udf, but i have seen an other udf from jerome that you can find here (). Would it be helpfull to combine this 2 UDF to one?

@geometer

oh, I did not know this one.

Since his does more than mine, I don't see how it can be possible to combine them. Furthermore I make my projects by myself and this UDF must remain simple.

Awesome, I just realized, recently, all the ways to read/write excel without the app...I think that there could be some major improvements using object microsoft.xmldom...I'll look into this later, but great example.

jdelaney,

Thanks, if you find a way to work with the xmldom object then create a new topic to post your UDF :)

You can link it here if you want.

I'm having some namespace issues...where new cells and rows, when you load a file, include empty namespaces, causing excel to not display their data...outside of that, the basics are there

      Hi, I am using excel as input media for my program. The excel file (i tried with .xls, .xlsx and .xlsm format) has inputs which the autoit script reads during the run and performs few calculations. Some times (not always), after the run, when i try to open the excel file manually, the file doesnt open at all in excel. see the screenshot attached. However, if the execute the autoit script, the scripts still reads the existing data from that excel and performs the calcs. I copied the excel file to another computer and there too, it doesnt open.  So, after this, i cannot edit the excel forever (if i need to change any inputs). It is only this particular file that got affected. other excel files works normal.  What could be the problem here.  please help as this is a new challenge for me during my program development.

      Hi,
       
      I've been trying to automate modification of an excel file and the last thing I am stuck on is deleting all the rows where the value of Column 13 is 0. 
      I believe the error is due to me not fully understanding the syntax so this is where I'm stuck: 
       
      Func Hotkey2() Global $aUsedRange = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, 1) _ArrayDisplay($aUsedRange) For $iRow = UBound($aUsedRange) - 1 to 3 Step -1 If $aUsedRange[$iRow][13] = 0 Then _Excel_RangeDelete($oWorkbook.Worksheets(1), $aUsedRange[$iRow] & ":" & $aUsedRange[$iRow], default, 1) If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeDelete Example 2", "Error deleting rows." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) EndIf Next EndFunc  
      While my script properly locates the row which contains value 0 in Column 13, I am not sure how to set it to the corresponding row in the excel workbook?  My above experiment gives me $vRange error and I've been toying around with it to no avail. The only way I get the Script to delete a row is by actually specifying "4:4" or "6:8" etc. 
      Where am I going wrong?
       
      Thanks!
