Excel _ExcelReadCell

Recommended Posts

I am trying to read a specific cell value in Excel. In my Excel.au3 I don't have the function _ExcelReadCell. Is there any other way to read a specific cell or is there any download available for Excel.au3

Use _Excel_RangeRead instead. And please pick a smaller font.

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.

Please tone down your font size, making my eyes bleed.

What version of AutoIt are you running? The current version would use _Excel_RangeWrite

#include <Array.au3>
#include <Excel.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

; Create application object and open a workbook
Local $oAppl = _Excel_Open()
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_SheetList Example", "Error creating the Excel application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oAppl, @ScriptDir & "\Unassigned Credit Card Transactions (MAIN REPORT).xlsx")
If @error Then
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_SheetList Example", "Error opening workbook '" & @ScriptDir & "\Unassigned Credit Card Transactions (MAIN REPORT).xlsx'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
    _Excel_Close($oAppl)
    Exit
EndIf

; *****************************************************************************
; Display a list of all worksheets for a specific Workbook
; *****************************************************************************
Local $aWorkSheets = _Excel_SheetList($oWorkbook)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_SheetList Example 1", "Error listing Worksheets." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
;_ArrayDisplay($aWorkSheets, "Excel UDF: _Excel_SheetList Example 1")
For Local $nNames In $aWorkSheets
            Local $worksheetname = $nNames
            MsgBox(64,"Res", "The Name of worksheet :" & $worksheetname )
Next

 

This code does not go into for-loop.

All i am trying to do "Format the Range of cells in mutliple worksheet in a  workbook. My workbook has multiple worksheets.

I took this script form the Examples. Instead of displaying using _ArrayDisplay i am trying to use a For Next loop. Once I loop i will know the worksheet I am on to modify the cell ranges.

I am not sure I am doing the right way. Since the variable is 2-d array it does not work in the for loop?

The function returns a 2D array. Try this. It works for me on a 25-sheet workbook.

#include <Array.au3>
#include <Excel.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Local $oAppl = _Excel_Open()
    If @error Then Exit ConsoleWrite("Error creating application object" & @CRLF)

Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oAppl, @ScriptDir & "\Unassigned Credit Card Transactions (MAIN REPORT).xlsx")
    If @error Then Exit ConsoleWrite("Error creating workbook object" & @CRLF)


Local $aWorkSheets = _Excel_SheetList($oWorkbook)
    If @error Then Exit ConsoleWrite("Error enumerating worksheets" & @CRLF)


For $i = 0 To UBound($aWorkSheets) - 1
    MsgBox(64,"Res", "The Name of worksheet :" & $aWorkSheets[$i][0])
Next

Glad to hear it. Again, very important to read the notes on each function to determine what it returns. In this case, big difference between 1D and 2D array, and how you handle them :)

      I have embeded an Excel file in my autoit Script and want to use it as part of my GUI. I want to be able to select a range of cells and add the cell data to an edit box. Then dump that data to an array. I am using GUICtrlCreateObj to embed the spreadsheet. I cannot find any way to let my program see what cells are active so I can add that data to the edit box. 
       
      #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <excel.au3> $FileName = 'C:\VLog\book1.xlsx' If Not FileExists($FileName) Then MsgBox(0, "ERROR", "File not found") Exit EndIf ;Basic GUI $oExcelDoc = ObjGet($FileName) ; Get an excel Object from an existing filename If IsObj($oExcelDoc) Then $mainGUI = GUICreate("Production Room 2", 1800, 1200, 10, 10, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX + $WS_SYSMENU + $WS_CLIPCHILDREN) $GUI_ActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj($oExcelDoc, 10, 70, @DesktopWidth - 250, @DesktopHeight - 260) $data = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", @DesktopWidth - 225, 75, 100) $btn = GUICtrlCreateButton( "GO", @DesktopWidth - 100, 75, 75) Else MsgBox(0, "", "failed") EndIf ;------------------ ;Turns off all command bars in excel to prevent user from making changes For $Bar In $oExcelDoc.CommandBars If $Bar.Enabled = True Then $Bar.Enabled = False If $Bar.Visible = True Then $Bar.Visible = False Next $oExcelDoc.Application.DisplayFormulaBar = False $oExcelDoc.Application.CommandBars("Shadow Settings").Visible = False $oExcelDoc.Application.DisplayScrollBars = True $oExcelDoc.Application.DisplayStatusBar = False GUISetState()

      Hi Guys,
      Can anyone point me in the right direction. I'm trying to accomplished conditional formatting with arrows, but the code I have is wrong... 
      .Range("=$A3:$A4000").FormatConditions.Add = (xlCellValue, xlGreater, "=$A:$A") .IconSet(xl3Arrows) ;ActiveWorkbook.iconsets I also tried it like this:
      .Range("=$A3:$A4000").FormatConditions _ .Add(xlCellValue, xlGreater, "=$A:$A") .IconSet(xl3Arrows) ;ActiveWorkbook.iconsets

      Hi Guys,
      How would you use _Excel_FilterSet to filter the excel sheet from largest number to smallest number?
      _Excel_FilterSet($oWorkbook, "Sheet1", "A2:I2", 1, ">20", 1, "<40") ; OR _Excel_FilterSet($oWorkbook, "Sheet1", "A2:I2", 1, ">", 1, "<") Excel Sheet attached. Trying to filter on the last column "I2"

      Hi All,
      Has anyone come across this before?
      Code below:
      $SheetList = _Excel_SheetList($oWorkbook) _FileWriteFromArray("C:\" & $SheetListOutput, $SheetList, 1) Result:
      ResultABC| ResultDEF| ResultGHI| ResultJKL| ResultMNO| It created these "|" vertical bars?

      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
