Errors $oExcel.Activesheet.Cells($sRangeOrRow, $iColumn).Value = $sValue

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 :
New.xls
 
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.:
$oExcel.Activesheet.Cells($sRangeOrRow, $iColumn).Value = $sValue
$oExcel.Activesheet.Cells($sRangeOrRow, $iColumn)^ ERROR

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!!

      Hi guys, 
      I was trying to automate a webpage after getting input from excel. The script worked fine for like 5 iterations but then stopped all of a sudden, I dont have the exact error msg now, but it was pointing to this in the IE UDF:-
      Return SetError($_IESTATUS_Success, $oTemp.GetElementsByTagName($sTagName).length,
      When i looked up the forum there was a similar question which said that I have to fix KB 3008923 update by uninstalling it, but I am unable to do that. 
      here is the link for download:- ( i guess )
      https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3024777/error-0x800706f7-occurs-after-you-install-kb-3004394-and-then-run-windows-update-in-windows-7-and-windows-server-2008-r2
      Does anybody know the proper steps to solve this??
      Plus I wont be able to send the code here because of privacy policy n all by the company.
      Desperately looking for a reply.....

      Hello everyone
      I would like to have some help regarding my issue.
      I am trying to extract some information from excel sheet, I use _Excel_RangeFind then I get the array for the value then I check the array. In case the array is true the next will be to get some information based on the extracted array if no array because the value is not found it gives a messages box that the value is not found.
      My problem that the button works for one time only if i tried any value which exist in the sheet it gives me that value not found.
      I suspect that there is a problem regarding While loop.
      here is my code

      Hello
      I am relatively new to the world of Microsoft Office and the Excel UDF.
      I am trying to loop through every row in a spreadsheet and get the text/values from each column in the given row... so far I have looked into the Help file for the Excel UDF and the wiki page for Excel UDF but I have no idea about how this is done ... This is all I have in my script:
      Global $oExcel = _Excel_Open(False, False, False, False, True) Global Const $sSpreadsheet = @ScriptDir & '\data.xlsx' Global $oSpreadsheet = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sSpreadsheet, True, False) ; ... I am placing my bet on the _Excel_Range functions... especially _Excel_RangeRead. I don't know how $vRange works so I would be glad if someone can point me in the right direction . What I would ideally like is to get all of the contents of the spreadsheet (it's just a normal text one) in a 2D array.
      Thanks in Advance!

      So, I have stumbled upon a problem with countring rows in excel files.
      The script I am working on will count the total number of rows of every file in the folder it was placed into.
      It is to my understanding that UsedRange counts rows even if they are empty, provided that a user has previously edited them. In other words, even if the file has two rows, the script might return 1000, if I edit and then leave empty cell (A,1000). How can I avoid this happening?
      Thanks in advance!
