[Solved] Excel - range error if check against wrong type ?

1 post in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Discovered a strange thing today with Excel. Maybe it's just me doing something wrong.

Here's the situation: Excel sheet containing 18 columns by 1700 rows.

For this example, column no. 12 ("M") contains a number. Column 13 ("N") has a number or a text.

I can open the book just fine.

Now I can try:

$a = _Excel_RangeRead($e, 1, "A1:R1700", 1)
for $i = 1 to 1700
    if $a[$i][13] = "XXX" then
        ConsoleWrite("found at " & $i & @LF)

This will work fine, and list all lines containing "XXX".

If I change only the 13:

$a = _Excel_RangeRead($e, 1, "A1:R1700", 1)
for $i = 1 to 1700
    if $a[$i][12] = "XXX" then
        ConsoleWrite("found at " & $i & @LF)

I get an error about the array.

"file.au3" (30) : ==> Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.:
if $a[$i][12] = "XXX" then
if ^ ERROR

But I KNOW that the array is correct size, I am only reading a different column. Changing 12 to 11, another mixed column, and it will work.

What did I miss - why can't I check a number against "XXX" string ? After all I know, it should just fail, like "if 3= 'XXX' then ..."


EDIT: well, I guess it's real embaressing: I think I messed up the 0 or 1-based array.  :

This topic may be deleted if admins see fit.. otherwise marked solved.

      I'm trying to insert the following formula in cell A2 using my script:
      =if(A1=""; "YES"; "NO")
      To my understanding, the line of code should be similar to this:
      _Excel_RangeWrite($MasterFile, Default, "=if(A1=""; "YES"; "NO")", "A2")
      However, it does not work, probably due to the multiple quotation marks that confuse the script :C
      How do I avoid this problem?

      Hi everybody,
      i have a question about Excel, i have to create several charts one below the other dynamically.
      I have thought to use:
      $oRangeLast = .UsedRange.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeLastCell) $iRowCount = .Range(.Cells(1, 1), .Cells($oRangeLast.Row, $oRangeLast.Column)).Rows.Count  
      And then to use it in this way:
      $Graph_position = "=Test1!A"&$iRowCount+2&":K"&$iRowCount+24 But it doesn't work with charts.
      Does anyone have a suggestion?

      I  want to create a excel file from my script if it does not exist.
      _ExcelBookOpen throws error=2 if file does not exist, after this error i want to create new file at this point.

      _Logger($sLogPath, "{INFO}------: Opening Excel File: " & $sExcelPath& "") While 1 Local $oExcelTestResult = _ExcelBookOpen($sExcelPath) If @error = 2 Then If not _FileCreate($sResExcelPath) Then MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error In Opening REsult Excel File: Error: " & String(@error)) _Logger($sLogPath, "{ERROR}------: Result Excel File does not exist.. tried to create new but :ERROR : " & String(@error) & "") ExitLoop Else _Logger($sLogPath, "{INFO}------: Result Excel File does not exist.. **Created New**: ") EndIf Else ExitLoop EndIf WEnd
