Getting the average of an excel file? B2:B62 for example in AutoIT

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am fairly new to AutoIT so please bear with me. I just can't understand the _Excel functions and I have been spending hours to do this. So far, this is what I have done. I created an excel file using the typeperf.exe in windows to monitor its cpu usage with 60 samples in 5 sec interval. I managed to create an excel file and right now I need to average its results in which I am very unsuccessfulI understand that I first need to open the excel file if I already have one via _Excel_Open. e.g. _Excel_Open("C:\sample.csv). After that, what do i actually do? I've also seen 

_ExcelWriteCell

and I don't think it's the command I need.

Thanks,
Ivan

You need 

_Excel_Open to start up Excel or to comnect to a running instance  

You then need _Excel_BookOpen to open an existing workbook  

Then use _Excel_RangeWrite to write data to the open workbook. 

You will find examples for each command in the help file.

      Hey there! 😃
      I am having a problem with the _Excel_RangeFind. I am trying to search for a value in a particular cell range. The script copies the value from the internet. Copying and saving as a variable is working fine, but as soon as it should find the value in excel, nothing happens. ( I am not getting an error)
      #include <Excel.au3> Func Excel() Send("{CTRLDOWN}") Send("{c}") Send("{CTRLUP}") Local $sName = ClipGet() ;Text Local $sShortName = StringTrimRight ( $sName, 1) ;delete one letter Local $bOpenWorkBook = False, $oExcel = _Excel_Open() Local $sFilePath = "C:\Users\Acer\OneDrive\xyz.xlsx" Local $oWorkbook $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookAttach($sFilePath) If @error Then $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sFilePath) $bOpenWorkBook = True EndIf sleep(15000) Send("{LWINDown}") Send ("{up}") ;maximize window Send("{LWINup}") sleep(1000) _Excel_RangeFind ($oWorkbook, $sShortName, "A3:A56") EndFunc Is anyone familiar with this problem or am I just missing some basic stuff? 
      Thanks for help!

      Hey guys
      I'm new to autoit, so this could be a simple question. I'm trying to read the value from the currently selected cell in Excel. I read on the forum and tired to find videos, but I couldn't quite get to it. 
      This is what I have got so far:
       
      Local $oExcel_1 = _Excel_Open()
      Local $var = "C:\Users\Acer\xy"
      Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel_1,$var)
       
      Local $_read1 = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, Default.Application.ActiveCell.Address)
       
      Whatever I try, I either get an error or it only reads "0".
       
      Thank you very much for any helpful thoughts!
