Append an excel sheet from first blank row

Recommended Posts

andomatic

Hi,

I've some data that I need to write into an existing excel sheet.The sheet has 24 active columns (a-x) and some rows populated, 30 or so. To get my data I read a locally saved htm file and populate some vars, no problem. The question is how to then find the first blank row, write my data, move to the next row, read the next data set and write it. I've got the code done for the data loop piece, just can not for the life of me figure out the excel. I don't care if I use the excel UDF or COM calls, just need a push in the right direction please... Here is what I have so far, any help is appreciated.

Bill,

Thanks for the link, I've incorporated the cursor move piece and it seems to work, to write in the data, I'm thinking that I need to create an array out of my info and then somehow write that across rather than down so to speak

If you have loops already setup its just a matter of adding the count variable (move to next cell) and adding

_ExcelWriteCell($oExcel, $i, $i, 3)

or similar..

The variables ($i) (Position to add data to excel sheet) can be controlled by a For To Next Loop.

BTW moving down is default in excel

You can copy it in a single statement. Use the "Usedrange" object.

This has been answered a few weeks ago. I will post the link ... as soon as I can find it ;)

UsedRange covers the range from the first row with data to the last row with data.

>Here you find an example using my rewrite of the Excel UDF. It's much faster than the UDF currently distributed with AutoIt.

      I'm using this for replacing text strings in the VBProject of all excel files in a folder and subfolders.
      I have the same text string in several lines and those lines could have some differences between files: then not feasible for .ReplaceLine method
      I'm not interested in placing all the code in a xla AddIn, because the code is similar but not exactly the same in all the files.
