Problem Writing Array to Excel

Recommended Posts

Hello Autoit Scripters,

Using Autoit v3.3.14.1 in Windows 7, I'm trying to write an array of X rows by 34 columns to an Excel 2000 sheet as follows:

_Excel_RangeWrite ($workbook, $newsheet, $outarray)

It only works up to 160 rows. An array longer than that writes nothing or hangs the system. This needs to work with up to about 32,000 rows. I've displayed $outarray right before the writing function, and it's perfect. I searched around and found an alternative to _Excel_RangeWrite that uses a different approach based on that COM stuff. It gives the same problem! The problem doesn't appear to be affected by how much data is stored in the array, only the number of rows. I must be overlooking something, like maybe a system setting. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

What is the return value and the value of @error and @extended after _Excel_RangeWrite?

wiretwister,

This works for me...

#include <array.au3>
#include <Excel.au3>

Local $aArray[32000][34], $st = timerinit()

For $i = 0 To UBound($aArray) - 1
    For $j = 0 To UBound($aArray, 2) - 1
        $aArray[$i][$j] = StringFormat('%05i - %02i', $i, $j)
    Next
Next

ConsoleWrite('Time to populate array = ' & round(timerdiff($st)/1000,3) & ' seconds' & @CRLF)
$st = timerinit()

Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open(false)
ConsoleWrite(@error & ' - ' & @extended & @CRLF)

$oBook = _Excel_BookNew($oExcel, 1)
ConsoleWrite(@error & ' - ' & @extended & @CRLF)

_Excel_RangeWrite($oBook, Default, $aArray)
ConsoleWrite(@error & ' - ' & @extended & @CRLF)

ConsoleWrite('Time to populate spreadsheet = ' & round(timerdiff($st)/1000,3) & ' seconds' & @CRLF)

Excel 200 has an undocumented limit of 5641 cells that can be processed using the transpose method.
Try

_Excel_RangeWrite($workbook, $newsheet, $outarray, Default, Default, True)

This forces the UDF to bypass the transpose method (and its limitations) and use function _ArrayTranspose.

Details about Excel up to version 2000 can be found here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/177991

What I have found so far:
Excel 95   - 5461 cells
Excel 97   - 5461 cells
Excel 2000 - 5461 cells
Excel 2002 - 65536 rows (tested by kylomas with an [65537][2] array)
Excel 2003 - 65536 rows (because Excel 2002 and Excel 2010 have the same limit)
Excel 2007 - 65536 rows (because Excel 2002 and Excel 2010 have the same limit)
Excel 2010 - 65536 rows (tested myself with an [65537][1] array)
Excel 2013 - ?

I have no idea. Maybe it is caused by the way the COM error handler has changed.
Could you test your script with AutoIt 3.3.12.0 to check we get the same results?

@water - I ran it initially with the workbook visible.  When it finished I navigated to the bottom (row 31999 X 34 columns = appx. 1.08 million cells).  Where did the numbers you posted come from?  And, why is transposition an issue?

Note - I changed the open back to "visible" to check that the entire spreadsheet was written.  I was able to scroll to the bottom (row 31999) with no problem.

While running the screen does blank out several times and the excel window shows "...not responding..." occasionally.

Hope this helps,

kylomas

edit: my version of excel is 2002 SP3

Unfortunately transposing is needed because Excel treats the rows of the array as columns and the columns as rows.
Check this code where transposing has been omitted:

#include <Excel.au3>

Local $aArray[3][5] = [[10, 20, 30, 40, 50], [11, 21, 31, 41, 51], [12, 22, 32, 42, 52]]
Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
Local $oBook = _Excel_BookNew($oExcel, 1)
$oBook.Activesheet.Range("A1:C5").Value = $aArray

I have learned it the hard way when rewriting the Excel UDF that there is a limit on the transpose method.
Unfortunately you do not find too much reliable information when searching MSDN or the web.

I searched the web high and low and couldn't find any information about the transpose limit in Excel 2002.
Maybe the limit was already lifted to 65536 rows?
Could you please run the following test with 65536 and 65537 rows in the array?

#include <array.au3>
#include <Excel.au3>

Local $aArray[65536][2] ; <=== Change to 65537 for the second test!
Loca $st = timerinit()

For $i = 0 To UBound($aArray) - 1
    For $j = 0 To UBound($aArray, 2) - 1
        $aArray[$i][$j] = StringFormat('%05i - %02i', $i, $j)
    Next
Next

ConsoleWrite('Time to populate array = ' & round(timerdiff($st)/1000,3) & ' seconds' & @CRLF)
$st = timerinit()

Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
ConsoleWrite(@error & ' - ' & @extended & @CRLF)

$oBook = _Excel_BookNew($oExcel, 1)
ConsoleWrite(@error & ' - ' & @extended & @CRLF)

_Excel_RangeWrite($oBook, Default, $aArray)
ConsoleWrite(@error & ' - ' & @extended & @CRLF)

Maybe in topic #6 you mean "rows", not "cells".

I will run your test when I get back by my pc...

For Excel 95, Excel 97 and Excel 2000 it is 5461 cells as described in the KB article I mentioned.
In Excel 2010 it is 65536 rows because it doesn't matter how many columns the array has I tested with.

For Excel 2002, 2003 and 2007 it is still undefined in my opinion. For Excel 2007 I somewhere read that it was 65536 cells, but this could be wrong.

As your script works with Excel 2002 and 34000 rows it might me that the limit was already lifted to 65536 rows with this Excel version. The tests with 65536 and 65537 rows with Excel 2002 should show how it works.

That's great. So we now know that the 65536 rows limit was implemented with Excel 2002 :)
But it still doesn't explain, why the OPs script fails :(

How do you populate your array? Do you query a database, Active Directory or some other systems which might return Null or cells with data longer 255 characters?

Indeed, now we need to see the code that fails.  That was my point, albeit vague, in posting working code in topic #4.

      hello again,
      it has been a long time since i have been here and a long time since i last used autoit. ever so often when the time allows me to, then i follow up on an idea that i had a long time ago. i have done all the work on paper but now it is up to writing it in autoit and i keep stumbling over many little issues here and there. sometimes after a few days i will try again and get a step further but sometimes it just will not help no matter how long i try and think about a solution. for most of you it will be the basics but for me it is not all that easy, but at least i give it a try.
      right, down to business:
      here is my code:
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <StringConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <String.au3> ; ; PART 1: define replacements and check with msgbox ; Global $y, $z $y = "Yes" $z = "No" MsgBox(0,"replacements", $y & @CRLF & $z) ;the replacements in a message box ; ; PART 2: set the texts and check via console and msgbox ; Global $my1string = "abab" ;the first specified text MsgBox(0,"my1string", $my1string) ;the message box to output the first specified text Global $my2string = "icic" ;the second specified text MsgBox(0,"my2string", $my2string) ;the message box to output the second specified text ; ; PART 3: transform the strings to individual arrays ; $my1array = StringSplit($my1string, "") $my1array[0] = "" _ArrayDelete($my1array, 0) _ArrayDisplay($my1array, "my1array") ;the display of the first specified array $my2array = StringSplit($my2string, "") $my2array[0] = "" _ArrayDelete($my2array, 0) _ArrayDisplay($my2array, "my2array") ;the display of the first specified array ; ; PART 4: create an empty array for filling ; Global $OutputArray[4] $OutputArray[0] = "" _ArrayDisplay($OutputArray, "OutputArray") ;the display of the first specified array ; ; PART 5: compare & fill empty OutputArray with data after evaluation ; Global $i, $j, $k For $i = 0 to UBound($my1array) -1 For $j = 0 to UBound($my2array) -1 For $k = 0 to UBound($OutputArray) -1 If $my1array[$i] = "a" And $my2array[$j] = "i" Then $OutputArray[$k] = $y Else $OutputArray[$k] = $z EndIf Next Next Next _ArrayDisplay($OutputArray, "OutputArray") ;the display of the Newly filled Array In "Part 2" i make a string that is converted to an array in "Part 3" ... Now, I know that "a" and "i" are always in the exact same spot in both arrays and so i wanted to compare this and make a further array to document my findings by saying "yes" or "no" ... however my new array keeps saying just "no" allthough i can clearly see and know that it should say:
      yes no yes no my guess is that there is something wrong within my for-loops and that the counting is somehow "off" i guess that when the first for-loop is finished it reaches the second whilst the second for-loop is checking the first which would explain why it always says "no" instead of seeing the obvious.
      so my question would be: what is wrong with my for-loop? or where am i making an error that ultimately gives me the wrong results?
      help is much appreciated.
      kind regards
      roeselpi

      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

      I was looking for a UDF using which I could Add and Update Pivot tables and Pivot Charts in Excel easily and could not find one that I could use. So I build this UDF. 
      It has the following functions :
      _ExcelPivot_CreateCache ; Easily Create a pivot table data cache from a Sheet _ExcelPivot_CreateTable ; Create a table from a cache at a specified location on the sheet _ExcelPivot_RefreshTable ; Refresh the datatable data with a new cache _ExcelPivot_AddField ; Add a Field and Aggregate function to the Datatable _ExcelPivot_AddFilter ; Adds in the Filter to a specific field _ExcelPivot_ClearFilter ; Removes the filter for a field or all the filters in the table _ExcelPivot_GetRange ; Get specific areas of a Pivot as a Range Object _ExcelPivot_AddChart ; Add a Pivot Chart linked to a specific Pivot table Attached the UDF to this post.
      Please do let me know if I can improve or add additional functions to it.
      A detailed example on the usage is below. The excel file and the example can be downloaded from the Example.zip file attached.
      #include "ExcelPivot.au3" $oExcel = _Excel_Open() $oBook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, @ScriptDir & "\TestPivot.xlsx") ;Create a Sheet to put the pivot into $pSheet = _Excel_SheetAdd($oBook, -1, False, 1) $pSheet.Name = "Pivot" ;Get the cache for the pivot table $pCache = _ExcelPivot_CreateCache($oBook, "Data") ;Add in the Pivot Table from the Cache _ExcelPivot_CreateTable($pCache, $pSheet, "A1", "FruitsPivot") ;Add in the Fields into the Pivot _ExcelPivot_AddField($pSheet, "FruitsPivot", "Category", "Filter") _ExcelPivot_AddField($pSheet, "FruitsPivot", "Product", "Row") _ExcelPivot_AddField($pSheet, "FruitsPivot", "Amount", "Value", "Sum", 1) ;Add in a Running total to the Pivot _ExcelPivot_AddField($pSheet, "FruitsPivot", "Amount", "Value", "Sum", 2, "PercentageRunningTotal", "Product") ;Filter only the fruits _ExcelPivot_Filter($pSheet, "FruitsPivot", "Category", "Fruit") ;Draw a Paretto Chart $chart = _ExcelPivot_AddChart($oBook, $pSheet, "FruitsPivot", "ColumnClustered", "Paretto", "E2", 570) $chart.Chart.FullSeriesCollection(1).ApplyDataLabels $chart.Chart.FullSeriesCollection(2).ChartType = 4 ;Change the percentage to a line graph $chart.Chart.FullSeriesCollection(2).AxisGroup = 2 ;Move it to secondary axis $chart.Chart.Axes(2, 2).MaximumScale = 1 ;Adjust to scale to 100% max

      Excel VBA's IDE registers a Control-y as "cut this line of code".
      For those prone to Undo/Redo (Ctrl+Z/Ctrl+Y) you may find frustration when your code in the editor does not redo, but in fact clears your active line of code while killing redo history.
      Though not perfect, I keep this tool running in background on startup.
      The purpose is to allow Cltr+Y to act normally throughout Windows and Office and only interact *differently* with the "Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications" window that is active.
      If the Standard Menu bar exists, it'll try to click the ReDo (Blue Arrow to the right), else "Alt+e, r" keystrokes (less desired).
       
      Here's the code:
      Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 1) HotKeySet("^y", "TriggerRedo") While 1 Sleep(10) WEnd Func TriggerRedo() ConsoleWrite("TriggerRedo()" & @CRLF) Local $title = "Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications - " Local $hWnd If WinExists($title) And WinActive($title) Then ;~ Parent Window Handle $hWnd = WinGetHandle($title) Local $aWindowPos = WinGetPos($hWnd) ;~ Control Bar Handle, Position and If Visible Local $sControlID = "[CLASS:MsoCommandBar; TEXT:Standard;]" Local $hStandardBar = ControlGetHandle($hWnd, "", $sControlID) Local $bIsVisible = ControlCommand($hWnd, "", $sControlID, "IsVisible") If $hStandardBar And $bIsVisible Then ConsoleWrite("Using Mouse Click." & @CRLF) ;~ Determine Redo button location on visible Control Bar Local $aBarPos = ControlGetPos($hWnd, "", $sControlID) Local $mX = $aWindowPos[0] + $aBarPos[0] + 217 + Int(23/2) Local $mY = $aWindowPos[1] + $aBarPos[1] + 27 + Int(22/2) MouseClick("Left", $mX, $mY, 1, 0) Else ConsoleWrite("Using VBA Send Keys." & @CRLF) $sControlID = "[CLASS:MsoCommandBar; TEXT:Menu Bar;]" Local $hMenuBar = ControlGetHandle($hWnd, "", $sControlID) ControlSend($hWnd, "", $hMenuBar, "!e") ;~ Send("r") $sControlID = "[CLASS:MsoCommandBarPopup; TEXT:Edit;]" Local $hPopupBar = ControlGetHandle($hWnd, "", $sControlID) ControlSend($hWnd, "", $hPopupBar, "r") EndIf Else ConsoleWrite("Using NATIVE Send Keys." & @CRLF) HotKeySet("^y") Send("^y") ;~ may cause "yyy..." when held HotKeySet("^y", "TriggerRedo") EndIf EndFunc ;==>TriggerRedo Hope this inspires someone.

      Hi,
      I'd like to change different colors for different portion of text in same cell of Excel application.
      Neither character length nor cell might not fixed.
      Here's the code I've tried to put together but not manage to pull it off.
      I'm appreciate it for any suggestion, thank you.
      $oExcel = ObjCreate("Excel.Application") With $oExcel ; open new workbook .Visible = True .WorkBooks.Add .ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(1).Select() EndWith $oExcel.Cells.Font.Color = 0x000000 $oExcel.ActiveFont.Color = -16776961 Send ("'I'd like this sentence to be red'") Sleep(100) Send ("{AltDown}{Enter}{AltUp}") Sleep(100) $oExcel.ActiveCell.Selection.Font.Color = 0x000000 Send ("'I like this sentence to be black'") Sleep(100) Send ("{AltDown}{Enter}{AltUp}") Sleep(100) $oExcel.ActiveFont.Color = -16776961 Send ("'I'd like this sentence to be red again'") Sleep(100) Send ("{AltDown}{Enter}{AltUp}") Sleep(100) Send("{ENTER}")
