Delete all empty rows in Excel - one line of code

Recommended Posts

I recently >posted a question in the general help and support about how the best way to find the last non-empty cell in a workbook.  @Water was kind enough to help me find several solutions.  During that thread we also posted a snippet that I find to be very useful.  It was slightly off topic from the OP so I thought I would post it here so it has a home in case anyone needs it. That said, this is one way to delete all blank rows in a spreadsheet:

$oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Columns("A:A").SpecialCells($xlCellTypeBlanks).EntireRow.Delete

The $xlCellTypeBlanks is a constant in the Excel constants include so you don't need to pre-define it.  "A:A" is the range.  So this would look for any blank rows in Col A and delete those rows from the workbook.

Hope somebody finds it useful.

Would you be able to provide a workable example?

Sure,

#include<Excel.au3>
Local $oAppl = _Excel_Open()
Local $sWorkbook = @ScriptDir & "\test.xlsx" ; a workbook with some data and blank rows
Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oAppl, $sWorkbook, Default, Default, True)
$oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Columns("A:A").SpecialCells($xlCellTypeBlanks).EntireRow.Delete

The above is untested but should open a workbook and delete all blank rows.

      Hello,
      I'm struggling and not sure what I'm missing with how to use the _Excel_RangeRead function.
      Based on: https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/libfunctions/_Excel_RangeRead.htm
      The second parameter should allow me to select different sheet names, however I can't seem to get it to work.
      I was thinking something like this (see below) would be all I need to get an array for the sheet named as "test sheet". 
      $array = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, "test sheet")  
      Can someone please help tell me what I'm missing here?
       
      Thank you,

      I'm having some issues with writing to column C when an element is found. It works on C2 but it does not continue to C3, C4, C5, etc..... I'm wanting to write "test" if the element //input[@id='username'] is found  $someUser = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//input[@id='username']"). I have attached my HTML and Excel file along with my AutoIt code below:
      #Include "wd_core.au3" #Include "wd_helper.au3" #Include "wd_core.au3" #Include "File.au3" #Include "Array.au3" #Include "Excel.au3" Local $sDesiredCapabilities, $sSession _WD_Startup() $Ssession = _WD_CreateSession($sDesiredCapabilities) _WD_Navigate($sSession, "https://127.0.0.1/test.html") _WD_LoadWait($sSession) Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open() Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, "C:\Users\<Username>\Downloads\test.xlsx") Local $aArrayTest1 = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, 1, $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Usedrange.Columns("A:A")) Local $aArrayTest2 = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, 1, $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Usedrange.Columns("B:B")) For $i = 0 To UBound($aArrayTest1) - 1 _WD_Navigate($Ssession, $aArrayTest1[$i]) _WD_LoadWait($sSession) $someUser = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//input[@id='username']") _WD_SetElementValue($sSession, $someUser, $aArrayTest2[$i]) Local $sElement = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//input[@type='submit'][@value='Submit']") _WD_ElementAction($sSession, $sElement, 'click') _WD_LoadWait($sSession) Sleep(5000) If $someUser Then Local $aArray2D[2] = ["test"] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $aArray2D, "C2") EndIf Next Func SetupChrome() _WD_Option('Driver', 'chromedriver.exe') _WD_Option('Port', 9515) _WD_Option('DriverParams', '--log-path="' & @ScriptDir & '\chrome.log"') $sDesiredCapabilities = '{"capabilities": {"alwaysMatch": {"goog:chromeOptions": {"w3c": true, "args":["start-maximized","disable-infobars"]}}}}' EndFunc ;==>SetupChrome

      Hi @water
      in my excel file it doesn't work because it counts also all the cells that a somehow formated. Can this also ignores formated cells and only counts cells with data?
      thanks

      Dear all,
      first of all hi.
      I`m in trouble, again 😕
      I can`t find right solution, tried all possible combinations generated by my mind and nothing.
      I need to copy range of values depending by values from two different cells in excel sheet.
      I put an example in attachment.

      I have two values which is never changed (is changed only TEXT). I need to copy all the rows from VALUE 1 to VALUE 2 in new Sheets (Output 1, Output 2, ... , Output X).
      It is possible to do this using Autoit? 🤔
      Also in attachment you can find last example which I have tried and it`s something near, it is copying by _Excel_RangeFind row with needed VALUE 1 but I need to copy whole range from VALUE 1 to VALUE 2 😵 ( see in attachment examples).
      Thank you very much, in advance, for your support, solution really will make my life much easier 🙃
      Have a nice day all of you!
      Best Regards,
      Cristin
