[Q] Reading data from excel file already opened

Recommended Posts

rafaelcadina

G'day guys. Hope you're doing fine.

I wonder if it's possible to read cells data from excel from a file which is already opened. I've already read about _ExcelReadCell function, but it requires opening an excel file each time i run the script.

As I work with many worksheets in a single workbook, it's not a good idea to open the Excel file for each sheet i need to work with.

Do you know any workaround?

Thank you very much!

Try it with _ExcelBookAttach instead of _ExcelOpen.


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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
