Update the Excel UDF that comes with AutoIt

Recommended Posts

The copy is never deleted. I had to delete the files my self.

I had used the _Excel_BookClose to rid my self of getting a minimized excel file that I opened while script was running (after it created the array - I used _Excel_Close) - the problem was that the newest excel file was opening, but not opening in full screen, just minimized - not a big deal, but not what you would expect.

Edit my fault again, and I thought I would never be wrong again - this is what I posted, as my issue that I was having, not it being minimized

When you use _Excel_Open(False),(application should not be visible) and open another excel file, the one that is supposed to be hidden appears. I am using Office 2010.

When you use _Excel_Open(False),(application should not be visible) and open another excel file, the one that is supposed to be hidden appears. I am using Office 2010.

In post #92 I posted a reproducer script which works as expected - no worksheet shows up until visibility for Excel is set to True.

Can you test this please and post the result?

I do realize that, but that function is never called with my script, so do not have that error - in fact I had it commented out the first time I ran your test script, and did so again, and was able to run the test.

Msgbox comes up "Book 1 opened"

Msgbox comes up "Book 2 opened"

Msgbox comes up excel set to visible = true

after the last msgbox - both files are opened, but are mimized

The additional parameter in ObjGet isn't the only change made to AutoIt after 3.3.8.1.

COM handling has changed a lot. If you have a COM error in 3.3.8.1 your script crashes, in 3.3.9.* @error is set and the script continues.

I am using your code as I showed above and when I open it hiden the excel file it actually makes a copy and puts in my My Documents folder (root)

Have been looking for a copy on my W7 computer - couldn't find one.

Can you please post the name of the Excel file you open and the full path + name of the copy created?

Not going to be at work for a couple of days (shift work).

This is what I can recall:

I opened the folder called - @usernameMy Documents and set it so I could see it.and left it opened

with script - i put a msgbox after each command so that I could tell where and when the copy was created

Opened original excel file off a share drive, hidden

Created an array from reading the excel file with _Excel_RangeRead

After using the command _Excel_BookClose

I was able to view the creation of the copied excel file

as I said ealier, did not know about the default parameter saving a copy, but I assume you are interested in the size difference?


All by me:

"Sometimes you have to go back to where you started, to get to where you want to go." 

"Everybody catches up with everyone, eventually" 

"As you teach others, you are really teaching yourself."

I would guess that after _Excel_BookClose the original file from the shared drive should be updated and get a new timestamp. Can you verify this?

Do you have write access on the shared drive?

I can't explain the size difference at them moment.

Yes the shared drive file has a new times stamp as well as the copied one that is local - the local is about a two minute difference from the shared drive time stamp.

Yes, I have write access to shared drive.

No this is a file not a temp file. Original file size is 1,196KB the file that is located in my 'My Documents' folder is 815KB. Just something else I noticed, the original file's date modified also changes, each time I gather the information into my array. And the file that is copied to my 'My Documents' folder has a different time stamp - 2 minutes later

So the original file is updated by _Excel_BookClose and gets a new timestamp (e.g. 09:15:20), the copy in folder "My Documents" has a timestamp 2 minute later (e.g. 09:17:20)?

Does your script exit after _Excel_BookClose or does it run for this 2 minutes or longer?

Can you provide a small reproducer script that shows this strange behaviour?

This reproduces the strange behavior - remember when opening excel file, I am using a shared drive. I have not tested on any other conditions.

The time stamp is no longer changing on the original file - so I can not check out the time stamp difference. I am using your newest Alpha, but am not using the BETA version of AutoIt.

Sorry, but that's not a reproducer script. To much code unrelated to the problem.

I removed everything unnecessary. Can you please test the following script and tell me if the problem persists?

#include "Excel Rewrite.au3"

$ExcelFile = FileOpenDialog('Look GCAR report spreadsheet', 'c:\temp', "Excel (*.xls;*.xlsx)", 1 + 2)
Global $oExcel = _Excel_Open(False)
If @error <> 0 Then Exit MsgBox(16, "Excel UDF: _Excel_Open " & $ExcelFile, "Error creating the Excel application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
Global $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $ExcelFile, True)
If @error Then
    MsgBox(16, "Excel UDF: _Excel_BookOpen " & $ExcelFile, "Error opening '" & $ExcelFile & "'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
Else
    $aArrayExcel = _Excel_RangeRead($oExcel, $oWorkbook, Default, "A7:BC750")
    If @error Then MsgBox(16, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeRead " & $ExcelFile, "Error reading '" & $ExcelFile & "'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
EndIf

OK, ran your code as posted - same issue. at the end of script, it made a copy of the excel file - location C:Documents and Settings%username%My Documents - saved with the current time and date on the computer during the running of the script.

The file is not longer being save on the share drive, as it has the original date.

Happens when I run it with F5 or Alt F5

As stated in another topic, it appears that you need to close all instances of files in Scite to be able to run it from another location, otherwise it reverts to the first installed version.

So I ran this with BETA of AutoIt and still got the same results

>"C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\AutoIt3Wrapper\AutoIt3Wrapper.exe" /run /beta /ErrorStdOut /in "P:Autoitfileswaters reproducer script.au3" /UserParams

>Running:(3.3.9.4):C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Beta\autoit3.exe "P:Autoitfileswaters reproducer script.au3"

--> Press Ctrl+Alt+F5 to Restart or Ctrl+Break to Stop

+>13:13:21 AutoIT3.exe ended.rc:0

>Exit code: 0 Time: 18.690

Nitekram,

I tested high and low but couldn't recreate your problem.

Could this be a strange behaviour (aka bug) of Excel when running on Windows XP?

      Hi, I'm sure that this is a simple question regarding webdriver udf but my search on the forum did not result in the exact same scenario that I need. I will adapt it to my corporate needs but at first I want it to work with an example everybody can reproduce if needed.
      I navigate to https://www.daysoftheyear.com/ and want to find out what special day today is. Using the following Code returns the wanted text that today is 'shark awareness day' in the console but it is not pasted in notepad as it is not copied as it probably should be.
      #include "wd_core.au3" #include "wd_helper.au3" Local $sDesiredCapabilities, $sSession, $sID _WD_Option("Driver", "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\chromedriver.exe") _WD_Option('Port', 9515) _WD_Option('DriverParams', '--log-path="' & @ScriptDir & '\chrome.log"') $sDesiredCapabilities = '{"capabilities": {"alwaysMatch": {"goog:chromeOptions": {"w3c": true }}}}' _WD_Startup() $sSession = _WD_CreateSession($sDesiredCapabilities) _WD_Navigate($sSession, "https://www.daysoftheyear.com/?timezone_offset=nan") _WD_LoadWait($sSession) Sleep(3000) Local $sElement = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "/html/body/div[2]/header/div/div[1]/div/div[2]/h3/a") _WD_ElementAction($sSession, $sElement, 'text') ClipGet() Run("notepad.exe") Sleep(500) Send("^v") Scite returns this, therefore the text has been found but the last mile to paste it to notepad or excel does not work for me.
      __WD_Get: URL=HTTP://127.0.0.1:9515/session/b72166b774d7fefb258b3721fc1d4306/element/657e6b5d-31a9-46a8-85c4-acb7f72bf659/text __WD_Get: StatusCode=200; $iResult = 0; $sResponseText={"value":"Shark Awareness Day"}... _WD_ElementAction: {"value":"Shark Awareness Day"}... Thanks in advance!

      A tiny UDF that can shoot magic packets at your computers to wake them the heck up. All credits to Olish.
      The only parameter it needs to be specified – is your machine's MAC-address (ip address (the second parameter), at which you will be sending magic packet is generating automatically from @IPAddress1 macro)
      Example:
      _WoL_WakeDevice('001CC0CAED7A') ; the second parameter (if necessery) must be a broadcast address of your local network segment (i.e. 192.168.0.255 for a network 192.168.0.0)

      Hey,
      as part of a larger Programm I am trying to copy the values from one cell in an Excel file to another. The code I am using is the folowing.
       
      Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open() If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeCopy Example", "Error creating the Excel application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) _Excel_RangeCopyPaste($oExcel.ActiveSheet, "V4:W43", "X4", False, $xlPasteValues, Default, True) If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeCopy Example 4", "Error copying rows." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeCopy Example 4", "2 Rows successfully pasted from the clipboard to row 1.") As I understood it the option $xlPasteValues should do the trick  but it is still copying the inserted formulas. I attached a test code and excel file.
      Thanks for the help Simon

      An "improper" "unusual" use of Excel
      the script allows the creation of artistic images by simply coloring the background of the individual cells of the Excel workbook.
      Although definitely useless ... I find it quite funny though
      have a good time
      many thanks to @UEZ , @Malkey , @water
      p.s.
      I think the pixelite + color to array process can be simplified, but I used the two ready-made functions provided by UEZ and Malkey. I thank both of you (credits  and links in listing)
      p.p.s.
      strange behaviour: while excell is filling cells, if you move the mouse pointer off the excell window, the fill speed increases ... (?)

      This UDF allows to create formatted label using pseudo element RichLabel (RichEdit actually). Formating is set by using special modificator similar to <font> tag in Html.
      Notes: This UDF is a transformation-continuation of related UDF
