I'm having issues with using Excel_Open...

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

On one PC I can use _ExcelBookOpen("Workbook location", 1) however it seems as though the latest installation on my laptop the function doesn't exist...

I have to use _Excel_BookOpen but I can't figure out how to use it correctly.

Could someone help explain whats going on and how I can get round this so it works correct...

Did you look at the help file for the new function? It's pretty well explained how the parameters are supposed to be. The new UDF is a total rewrite so things have changed, sometimes dramatically, and the help file is your friend.


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.

I had a look and it's actually more confusing :S I tried doing it using the documentation in excel.au3 and the helpfile on the docs but can't get it working.

The only way was simple and worked perfectly for me :(

Only 2 major things have changed:

  • You need to use _Excel_Open as very first function call before starting to work with the new UDF
  • All function names have changed from _Excel* to _Excel_*

Everything else can be found in the script breaking changes section for Excel of the help file or the wiki.

If you still have questions please do not hesitate to ask.
