11 posts in this topic

Hi everybody, I have this code, but dont know how to fix this errors. So, I need help.
 

I want to use file Txt to control , write line number , write link to file ..... etc

But, when this code run, I can open file Excel, but have errors. 

 

This is my code Auto IT :
Test Read Txt - Xls.au3
 
My file Excel :

File Txt to control :
Control.txt
 
And this is my code :

#include <IE.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <Date.au3>
#Include <Excel.au3>
#include <Word.au3>
#include <FTPEx.au3>





$partData = FileReadLine ("Control.txt",2)
$oExcelData = _ExcelBookOpen($partData)


$CellName = FileReadLine ("Control.txt",17)
_ExcelWriteCell ($oExcelData,"Name Malibu",4,$CellName)

$CellPhone = FileReadLine ("Control.txt",8)
_ExcelWriteCell ($oExcelData,"0012848299124",4,$CellPhone)

And this is my Errors :

D:\AutoIt3\Include\Excel.au3 (451) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:

Hi there!

I have the same problem. I look everywhere without luck for solution.

Today i found a very strange solution. If we want this script to work we must give a fake value to wake up the script

example:

      1. $CellName = FileReadLine ("Control.txt",17) ;your line
        
        $test1 = msgbox(0,"",$CellName,1) ;trick starts
        
        if $test1 = -1 then
        $bla = $CellName +1 -1            ;the wake up trick
        endif                             ;trick ends
        
        _ExcelWriteCell($oExcelData,"Name Malibu",4,$bla) ; not $CellName

        Tell me if is working!!

What exactly are you attempting to do with this line "$bla = $CellName +1 -1"?

as I say "to wake up the variable value"

My script was:

$oExcel = _ExcelBookOpen(@DesktopDir & "\t.xls")
$sLastCell = $oExcel.Application.Selection.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeLastCell).Address(True, True, $xlR1C1)
$var = StringRight($sLastCell,1)
FOR $i = 1 to 10 Step 1
_ExcelWriteCell($oExcel,$i,$i,$var)
Next

But it doesn't work (I am not an expert script writter, but i tried many things)

$oExcel = _ExcelBookOpen(@DesktopDir & "\t.xls")
$sLastCell = $oExcel.Application.Selection.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeLastCell).Address(True, True, $xlR1C1)
$var = StringRight($sLastCell,1)
FileOpen(@DesktopDir & "\test.txt",2)
FileWrite(@DesktopDir & "\test.txt",$var)
$test = FileRead(@DesktopDir & "\test.txt",1)
$test1 = MsgBox(0,"",$test,1)
if $test1 = -1 Then
$bla = $test +1 -1
EndIf
FOR $i = 1 to 10 Step 1
_ExcelWriteCell($oExcel,$i,$i,$bla)
Next

That script with the +1 -1 trick working!! (I don't know why exactly. Maybe you can tell me)

I haven't a clue what you're attempting to do with that line, what it's doing is taking the string returned by FileRead, and then adding 1 to the string (converting the string to a number) and then subtracting 1 from the previous result.

What version of AutoIt are you using, because the updated Excel UDF uses different naming.

I use AutoIt v3.3.6.1

see the comments:

$oExcel = _ExcelBookOpen(@DesktopDir & "\t.xls")

$sLastCell = $oExcel.Application.Selection.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeLastCell).Address(True, True, $xlR1C1) ;this is a trick: How to read the range of t.xls for example "R3C6"

$var = StringRight($sLastCell,1) ;gives me the number of last column for example "6"

FOR $i = 1 to 10 Step 1
_ExcelWriteCell($oExcel,$i,$i,$var) ; here i want to use the value of last column which is "6" into the loop but it doesn't work
Next
 
It not seems logical and I don't know why, but the trick "if" & "msgbox" & "the new variable with +1-1" is working.
Can you try "the above not working script" to make it working?!?

I don't have that version available, it's also 4 years old. You should probably update to a newer or the newest version. The Excel UDF has been vastly improved over that version.

Ιn my opinion the latest version of AutoIT is much better and stable, but the new excel UDF not.

It has some new func but some older func missing. I think that the combination of both udf versions, they will bring the best results

The UDFs can't be combined in a single UDF because the design concept has changed.

The removed functions are only single line functions which became obsolete based on the new design concept or where 90% of the code were used for error checking of the passed parameters.

Please have a look at the wiki how to replace dropped functions.

"The UDFs can't be combined in a single UDF because the design concept has changed."

I didn't mean to compine the two versions of UDF. I mean-->

With two PC: (first PC) write a part of script to my older autoit version with old UDF excel, compiled to .exe and (second PC): write another part of script and execute the older func to the new version. 

I haven't read yet the wiki how to replace dropped functions, but i will definitely do that. Thanks!!

      I have an issue with disk space on a server so I wrote a simple little script to check specific directories and save the sizes to an Excel spreadsheet.  For this script, I am still using version 3.3.8.1.  Everything works fine, I just have a question.
      #cs ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- AutoIt Version: 3.3.8.1 #ce ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- #include<date.au3> #include<excel.au3> #include<array.au3> $file = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\CMScriptDirList.txt", 0) If @error Then Exit ;--folder view still OK $oexcel = _ExcelBookOpen(@ScriptDir & "\CMScriptDirSizesCopy.xlsx") If @error Then Exit ;--folder view now parent folder $excelArray = _ExcelReadSheetToArray($oexcel) $lastrow = $excelArray[0][0] $lastcol = $excelArray[0][1] _ExcelWriteCell($oexcel, _NowCalc(), 1, $lastcol + 1) While 1 $line = FileReadLine($file) If @error Then ExitLoop $size = DirGetSize(StringStripWS($line, 3)) / 1024 / 1024 $iIndex = _ArraySearch($excelArray, $line, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1) If @error Then ContinueLoop _ExcelWriteCell($oexcel, $size, $iIndex, $lastcol + 1) WEnd FileClose($file) _ExcelWriteFormula($oexcel, "=SUM(R2C" & $lastcol + 1 & ":R38C" & $lastcol + 1 & ")", 39, $lastcol + 1) _ExcelWriteFormula($oexcel, "=R39C" & $lastcol + 1 & "/1024", 40, $lastcol + 1) $oexcel.ActiveSheet.columns($lastcol).copy ;used to copy the format of the original last column of the spreadsheet $oexcel.ActiveSheet.columns($lastcol + 1).PasteSpecial(-4122, Default, Default, Default) ;this just pastes the format of the original last column to the new last column $oexcel.ActiveSheet.Range("A1").Select ;select cell A1 just to unselect the entire column from previous command $oexcel.columns.AutoFit ;auto sizes the column width _ExcelBookClose($oexcel, 1) ;save file when closing The script is compiled and sitting is a sub-directory on the server in question. The text file and the spreadsheet that are used are both in this same folder as well.  When I navigate to the folder and run the script by double-clicking on the executable, the process runs but the folder view where I ran the script will go back up one level so when the script completes, I am in the parent folder from where I started.  I have added message boxes throughout the script and have determined that the folder view goes back up one level at some point after the @error check for the file open and before the @error check for the ExcelBookOpen (where the comments are).
      I just wanted to know if someone can tell me why and if there is a way to prevent it. (Note: still using v3.3.8.1 on this machine but slowly converting scripts to v3.3.14.2).

      Good morning
      I would like to know if I can use the Excel UDF to manipulating a .csv file without having Office installed on the PC I'm going to work...
      I read somewhere that it could be done, but I'm here to ask and be sure of what I remember... 
      I'd like to post another question...
      How can I retrieve the handle of a windows from a PID of an .exe?
      I have my script that does a ShellExecute ( which returns the PID of the .exe ), and then, switching a parameter read from a .ini file, adapt the Window on the screen ( Maximize, Minimize, On Top )...
      I tried, but without having success with this:
       
      #Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #AutoIt3Wrapper_Outfile_x64=prova.exe #EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIEx.au3> #include <Array.au3> Local $sFileConfigurazione = @ScriptDir & "\configurazione_exe.ini" If(FileExists($sFileConfigurazione)) Then Local $aSezioniIni = IniReadSection($sFileConfigurazione, "CONFIGURAZIONE_EXE") If @error Then MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante l'apertura del file: " & @CRLF & $sFileConfigurazione & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error) Else ; Lancio dell'applicativo indicato nel file di configurazione Local $iPID = ShellExecute($aSezioniIni[1][1]) Local $hWnd If($iPID <> 0) Then Local $aWinList = WinList() For $i = 1 To $aWinList[0][0] If(WinGetProcess($aWinList[$i][1] = $iPID)) Then $hWnd = $aWinList[$i][1] EndIf Next Switch($aSezioniIni[2][1]) Case $aSezioniIni[2][1] = "MIN" WinSetState($hWnd, "", @SW_MINIMIZE) Case $aSezioniIni[2][1] = "MAX" WinSetState($hWnd, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE) Case $aSezioniIni[2][1] = "TOP" WinSetOnTop($hWnd, "", $WINDOWS_ONTOP) EndSwitch EndIf EndIf EndIf It just set on top the .exe I'm launching...

      Good morning
      I was looking for a method with rename an Excel Sheet, but I didn't find a lot...
      So, I decided to make it in another way...
      Since I have to create a new Workbook, I thought that, creating a new Workbook, deleting the existing sheet, and adding a new one, would be almost the same...
      But I'm encountering a lot of issues, both when I delete the sheet and when I add the new sheet...
      This is what I do:
       
      ; Create the Excel Object... Local $oExcel_PRV_HW = _Excel_Open(False) If @error Then MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante la creazione dell'oggetto Excel." & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error & @CRLF & "Esteso: " & @extended) Else ; Create the Workbook with 1 worksheet... Local $oWorkbook_New = _Excel_BookNew($oExcel_PRV_HW, 1) ; Save the Workbook in order to open it and work with it... _Excel_BookSaveAs($oWorkbook_New, $sFilePreventivo, $xlOpenXMLWorkbook, True) If @error Then MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante il salvataggio della cartella di lavoro." & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error) EndIf ; Open the Workbook to work with... Local $oWorkbook_PRV_HW = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel_PRV_HW, $sFilePreventivo) If @error Then MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante l'apertura del file '" & $sFilePreventivo & "'." & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error) Else ; Here I would add the _Excel_SheetDelete() and _Excel_SheetAdd() as I did, but they return errors... EndIf EndIf Can someone help me out, please? Thanks
