Combining Arrays

Recommended Posts

cdjphoenix

I'm hoping someone here can shed some light on a problem I've been having combining some arrays. I've searched the forum and found some posts but I'm still having troubles

My goal is to have an array that I can display with 3 seperate columns, I'd actually be happy with anyway to get 3 arrays on a table. I have a MySQL server that I am pulling 3 different fields from "firstname", "lastname" and "phone" and I can pull the data without any problems, it's just combining them.

Here is what I have currently code wise. It's not very pretty but it works...

#include "mysql.au3"
#include "array.au3"

$sql = _MySQLConnect('username','password','table','TestSystem')
$row = _Query($sql, "SELECT * FROM fax")
Global $aArray
Global $sFill
Global $aArray_Base [1] [3]
$aArray = $aArray_Base

Global $aArray2
Global $sFill2
Global $aArray_Base2 [1] [3]
$aArray2 = $aArray_Base2

Global $aArray3
Global $sFill3
Global $aArray_Base3 [1] [3]
$aArray3 = $aArray_Base3

with $row
While NOT .EOF

   Global $FirstName = .Fields("firstname").value
   Global $LastName = .Fields("lastname").value
   Global $FaxNumber = .Fields("faxnumber").value
   $sFill = $FirstName
   $sFill2 = $LastName
   $sFill3 = $FaxNumber
   _ArrayAdd($aArray, $sFill)
   _ArrayAdd($aArray2, $sFill2)
   _ArrayAdd($aArray3, $sFill3)
   .MoveNext


   ;MsgBox(0,"TEST",$FirstName &" " & $LastName & " " & $FaxNumber)
WEnd

EndWith

_ArrayDisplay($aArray, "Test Array")
_ArrayDisplay($aArray2, "Test Array")
_MySQLEnd($sql)

Thank you for taking the time to look at my code/problem.

why not just add them to the same array?  the third parameter of arrayadd is column so something like:

_ArrayAdd($aArray, $sFill)
   _ArrayAdd($aArray, $sFill2, 1)
   _ArrayAdd($aArray, $sFill3 , 2)

,-. .--. ________ .-. .-. ,---. ,-. .-. .-. .-.
|(| / /\ \ |\ /| |__ __||| | | || .-' | |/ / \ \_/ )/

| | | __ | (_)\/ | (_) | | .-. | | .-' | | \ |__| ) (

There were all in the same array at one point but I've been trying everything I can think of in order to get this to show the way i want.

i dont understand how placing this data into a single array with three columns, via arrayadd, does not meet the above requirement.  Is there something else you want of this 3 columned array?

You need to add some kind of error checking to your script. Every function sets the return value or macro @error when something went wrong. Check for errors before proceeding to the next statement.

Can you not use your "Select" statement to get whatever you want, in whatever order you want?

Select firstname, lastname, faxnumber from fax

Really?

Is your version of AutoIt from the future?

I get all kinds of errors, not least from this...

While NOT .EOF

It must be, I have no doubt there are errors but the reason i say it works is that when i run it I see my data in a table...all in one column, but it's still a table.

Right now in order to update certain user info I have to go to two serperate spots to update it and I find this annoying. What I'm trying to do is get this data into a MySQL database and use autoit to update this database along with Active Directory. Thanks for the input though, I see if i can add in some error checking.

*Edit here is my original code before i went crazy and started trying wierd things to get those coulmns.

#include "mysql.au3"
#include "array.au3"

$sql = _MySQLConnect('user','password','test','TestSystem')
$row = _Query($sql, "SELECT * FROM fax")
Global $aArray,$aArray2
Global $sFill, $sFill2
Global $aArray_Base [1] [3]
$aArray = $aArray_Base
with $row
While NOT .EOF

   Global $FirstName = .Fields("firstname").value
   Global $LastName = .Fields("lastname").value
   Global $FaxNumber = .Fields("faxnumber").value
   $sFill =$FirstName
   $sFill2 =$LastName
   $sFill3 =$FaxNumber
   _ArrayAdd($aArray, $sFill)
   _ArrayAdd($aArray, $sFill2, 1)
   _ArrayAdd($aArray, $sFill3, 2)
   .MoveNext
   ;MsgBox(0,"TEST",$FirstName)
WEnd
EndWith

_ArrayDisplay($aArray, "Test Array")

_MySQLEnd($sql)

I knew it would be something simple, this gets the correct data into the correct spots....for the most part. whatever reason each piece of data is in the correct column but it's one piece per row.

I Figured out how to do what I was looking to do. Here is the code just in case someone else comes searching for something similar:

#include "mysql.au3"
#include "array.au3"

$sql = _MySQLConnect('user','password','table','SQLSystem')
$row = _Query($sql, "SELECT * FROM fax")
Global $aArray,$aArray2
Global $sFill, $sFill2
Global $aArray_Base [1] [3]
$aArray = $aArray_Base
with $row
While NOT .EOF


   Global $FirstName = .Fields("firstname").value
   Global $LastName = .Fields("lastname").value
   Global $FaxNumber = .Fields("faxnumber").value

   Local $sFill[2] [3] = [[$FirstName, $LastName,$FaxNumber]]
   _ArrayAdd($aArray, $sFill)
   .MoveNext

WEnd
EndWith


_ArrayDisplay($aArray, "Test Array")

      Hi Virtual People,
      My array works perfectly fine. However, what is the best practice if the line in the array doesn't have the correct amount of columns and if I can add a placeholder?

       
      For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") Next

      hi all,
      reviewing the forum, this thread is applicable: 
       
       
      I wanted to know if there is now a better way to do this?
      In essence, I load a tab delimited txt file into an array (works well). I used tab, as some fields in the original csv contains commas.
      However, I needed autoit to manipulate this array, and output it as a csv.
      IF my array contains items with a comma, without double quotes around the field, then how best do I get a csv out of this?
      My current workaround is to filewritefromarray tab delimited, then open it in excel and save as a csv. I will need to check this to see how the address fields behave that contain a comma.
       
      Any thoughts would be appreciated.

      Hi All,

      I would like to know how you would take a FileLineRead and insert it into an array which then inserts it into Excel?
      One thing to know is the files content is broken up, so I only use half of the content within $FileRead1.
      So its imperative that the $value1, $value2, etc variables be used. 
      Code below:
      $FileRead1 = FileReadLine("C:\temp\sample.txt",1) For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] $value4 = $input[4] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value4, "D1") Next

      Hello,
      I'm trying to write a script that moves copies excel cells into an array. I'll than manipulate the values and send array into another program. 
      I don't want range to be specific to a workbook, or sheet, or set of cells.
      I want user to be able to highlight desired cells and to copy either normally ("Ctrl+C") or by a hotkey ("Alt+C"). 
      Could someone help me with this?
      Thank you,
      I've tried to write the framework: (edited)
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <Excel.au3> HotKeySet("!v", "Pastedata") While True Sleep(1000) WEnd func Makearray() local $bArray ;User has cells already copied ;Convert clipboard into an array ;I don;t know how excel stores data to clipboard so don;t know how to bring it into array _Arraydisplay($bArray) MsgBox(0,0,$bArray) return $bArray endfunc func Pastedata() Local $aArray MsgBox(0,0,"wait",1) ;make array based on assumption user has already copied a range to clipboard $aArray = Makearray() ;paste code ;don;t worry about this I got the rest endfunc

      I want to make a while loop, that creates variables based on a array. For thist I created the array $iDsO with the number and the name of folders in an other folder. Every folder has a different name an I want to create variables(arrays) for each folder that show me all the files in that folder. For example: I have the Folder \Folder1. In it there are the Folders \1, \2, \3. In 1, 2 and 3 there are some files(.png). The array for Folder1 is $iDsO and now I want to crate the arrays $iDsO1, $iDsO2 and $iDsO3 with the files in them can I make something like this:
      While $iDs > 0 ;$iDs is the number of files in Folder1>> $iDsO[0] $iDs#here should come the Foldername for example '1'# = _FileListtoArray(@ProgramFilesDir&"\Folder1\"&$iDsO[$iDs]) $iDs = $iDs - 1 Wend So that in the End I have three variabels ($iDs1, $iDs2 and $iDs3)
       
      Is this posible or if not what could I do instead ( I don´t know the number of folders in Folder1 in the begining).
