3D array from excel

Recommended Posts

uncommon

I have look at the examples in the forms and in the help file however I still dont think I understand what is wrong with my script. I keep getting a "Subscript used with non-Array variable" error. Maybe I am delcaring the array wrong but I am not sure.

I am trying to get the excel sheets to populate into a 3D array.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GuiButton.au3>
#include <GuiTreeView.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GuiTab.au3>
#include <array.au3>
#include <Excel.au3>
Global $next = 0
Opt("MustDeclareVars", 0)

;...

$oExcel = _ExcelBookOpen(@WorkingDir & "\Databaseproject.xls", 0)
dim $Databaseproject[10]
dim $array[100][100]
For $sheet = 1 to 10
_ExcelSheetActivate($oExcel, $sheet)
$array = _ExcelReadSheetToArray($oExcel, 1, 1, 100, 100)
$Databaseproject[$sheet] = $array[100][100]
Next
_ArrayDisplay($Databaseproject)
_ExcelBookClose($oExcel)

You're not using a 3D array for one thing, and for another, you never test to see if the _ExcelReadSheetToArray returns anything, or if it does return anything, whether there are 100 rows and columns. Also, does your spreadsheet really have 10 sheets in it?


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

If I am not using a 3D array then I must be declaring it wrong, could you give me an example of what it should look like?

I did test to see if I was getting an array from excel using _ArrayDisplay but I thought was was unnecessary for this post. As far as returning the 100 sheets, that's just over compensating if I need it later. I put ten sheets in there in case I would need it.

single d array: $array[1]

2d" $array[1][1]

3d: $array[1][1][1]

so you can setup like $array[sheet][x][y]

or, an array of arrays, using the excel read sheet to array function:

$array[sheet] = _ExcelReadSheetToArray() (so, this is a 1d array, comprised of 2d arrays)

Easier to handle are 2D arrays. 3D arrays can become quite complex to work with.

Do you really need to process multiple sheets in one go? Or could you process sheet by sheet?

Maybe you are right Water, I might be over doing this a bit. I must think on this, maybe there is a way I can flatten the data.

Universalist, an Array within array, I did not think that was possible but I will try that function out. Thanks for your comments.

uncommon,

This is a rough example of what jdelaney has advised...

#include <Excel.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

local $myExcelFile = @scriptdir & '\budget.xls'
Local $oExcel = _ExcelBookOpen($myExcelFile,1)

switch @error
    case 1
        ConsoleWrite('Unable to create object' & @LF)
        exit
    case 2
        ConsoleWrite('File does not exist' & @LF)
        Exit
endswitch

local $sheet_list = _excelsheetlist($oExcel)                ; get list of sheets to array, count is at offset 0
local $aSheets[$sheet_list[0]]                              ; define array from sheet list

for $1 = 0 to ubound($aSheets) - 1
    _ExcelSheetActivate($oExcel, $sheet_list[$1])           ; activate each sheet
    $aSheets[$1] = _ExcelReadSheetToArray($oExcel)          ; read each sheet (2D array) to an element of $aSheets (1D array)
next

for $1 = 0 to ubound($aSheets) - 1
    _arraydisplay($asheets[$1])                             ; $aSheets[$1] contains a 2D array
    ConsoleWrite('Number of dimensions for sheet # ' & $1 & ' = ' & ubound($aSheets[$1],0) & @LF)
next

_ExcelBookClose($oExcel, 1)

      My program has to first search for names in Column D that do not match up with column C. I got that search to work using arrays. It was slow and I could not figure out how to delete them so I just manually put coded the names that do not belong. I found their cell location but I do not know how to store that location and delete it.
      This is what I have so far.
      Local $NameToDelete1[6]  = _Excel_RangeFind($OpenWorkbook, "Smith, Bill") _ArrayDisplay($NameToDelete1, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 1", "", 0, "|", "Sheet|Name|Cell|Value|Formula|Comment") _Excel_RangeDelete($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $NameToDelete1[2], $xlShiftUp)  
      Please help, I wanted to have this program done yesterday but I did not see this problem until yesterday.

      So Im trying to make a simple 2d game and make some sort of collision detection so why not to make a 2 dimensional array but i have no clue how  to write it in multiple lines
      Global $map[5,5] = [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0] something like this but it doesn't work

      #include "..\Include\Array.au3" #include "..\Include\File.au3" #include "..\Include\AutoItConstants.au3" Local $aRetArray Local $sFilePath = "n.csv" _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, ",") ; _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, $FRTA_COUNT, ",") _ArrayDisplay($aRetArray, "Original", Default, 8) The above code shows two versions of _FileReadToArray and both don't work as expected.
      The first one doesn't use the comma as a delimiter. (so I get a single column array)  I tried adding "Default" between $aRetArray and "," then it told me it had an incorrect number of parameters. 

      I looked again at the documentation:
       
      #include <File.au3> _FileReadToArray ( $sFilePath, ByRef $vReturn [, $iFlags = $FRTA_COUNT [, $sDelimiter = ""]] )
      And I with or without the flags params I should be getting a 2D array due to my file being a csv. 
      I then tried a regular flag, $FRTA_COUNT, and it tells me that I'm using a variable $FRTA_COUNT while it's not declared. Tried putting in 1 instead and it told me again, incorrect number of params.

      I need to perform a subtotal in excel and I would like to automate this process using Autoit if possible like always any and all help will be greatly appreciated. 
      I can not find a good example but the two from Microsoft. Here is one of the two from msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vba/excel-vba/articles/range-subtotal-method-excel
      I do not really understand how to translate this into AutoIt, but I gave it a try and here is what I have.
      $OpenRange      = "A1:E200" $xlSum          = -4157 $Added_Array[2] = [2, 3] $OpenRange.Subtotal("B1", $xlSum, $Added_Array, True, False, True) I just need to perform a subtotal on a range based on a header called department, and then perform a sum on the results.

      How to use _Excel_RangeSort to sort my excel file by three different headers Column A1, B1, and C1 have headers on which I want to sort by. The headers on which I want to sort are department, employee type, and name.
      I still really new to AutoIt so I do not actually know how to properly start this line or lines of code, to be honest. The example code is the best I can do.
      _Excel_RangeSort($OpenWorkbook, Default, "A1:C1", "1:1", $xlDescending, Default, $xlYes, Default, $xlSortRows) I just need to sort by those three headers in that order of department, employee type, and name, plus in descending order.
       
      any and all help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!
