Compare 2 excel spreadsheets if amatch is found copy certain cells back the original workbook

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

As the title suggests. I have 2 spreadsheets with different information in both, however their is 1 common value to link the 2 spreadsheets together.

What I want to do is have everything from column B in an array from workbook1, the script would loop through the array searching for that exact value in workbook2 in column A. If that value is found in workbook2, I need to copy information from 2 different cells that relate to that record from workbook2 back into workbook1.

This is what I have so far but, just can't get the copying it the cell values from workbook2 into woorkbook 1.

; Select filepath with message to display in FileOpenDialog.
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Local Const $sMessage = "Select workbook filepath."
Local $sFilePath = FileOpenDialog($sMessage, "D:\Users\xxxxx\Documents\", "Excel (*.xls;*.xlsx;*.csv)|", $FD_FILEMUSTEXIST)
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
; Create application object or connect to an already running Excel instance
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Local $oAppl = _Excel_Open()
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF:", "Error creating the Excel application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
;open workbook1
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
$oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oAppl, $sFilepath, Default, Default, True)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF:", "Error opening '" & $oWorkbook & "'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
; Select filepath with message to display in FileOpenDialog.

Local Const $sMessage2 = "Select workbook2 filepath."
Local $sFilePath2 = FileOpenDialog($sMessage2, "D:\Users\xxxxx\Documents\", "Excel (*.xls;*.xlsx;*.csv)|", $FD_FILEMUSTEXIST)
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
;open workbook2

$oWorkbook2 = _Excel_BookOpen($oAppl, $sFilepath2, Default, Default, True)

;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
;Read array from workbook
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Local $aArray1 = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, Default)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF:", "Error reading from workbook." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
; Turn on progress GUI
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ProgressOn("Progress", "data washing progress", "0%")
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
; counts the number of rows in the array
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
$rows = UBound($aArray1) -1
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
; script start
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
for $c = 1 to $rows
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
; Progress calcualtions
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
$p=($c-1)/$rows*100
ProgressSet($p,$c-1&" of "&$rows&" records processed")
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
; Find all id's as per value in column B from workbook in workbook2
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
_Excel_FilterSet($oWorkbook2, Default, Default, 1, ($aArray1[$c][1]))
If @error Then
ContinueLoop
EndIf
_Excel_RangeCopyPaste($oWorkbook2.Worksheets(1), "AM:AN")
_Excel_FilterSet($oWorkbook, Default, Default, 2, ($aArray1[$c][1]))
_Excel_RangeCopyPaste($oWorkbook.Activesheet, Default, "P", Default, $xlPasteValues)
next

Anyone able to see where I have gone wrong or can suggest a better approach to do this?

Do you get an error or does it just not give the desired result?

thanks for taking a look guys, just not the desired result Water.
Junkew good point.

FYI:  I ended up just combining the two workbooks into one and having the data on 2 worksheets, just using the following array formula in excel:

In cell P2 in Sheet1
=INDEX('Sheet2'!AM:AM, MATCH(B2, 'Sheet2'!A:A, 0))

In cell Q2 in Sheet1
=INDEX('Sheet2'!AN:AN, MATCH(B2, 'Sheet2'!A:A, 0))

      Hello,
       
      I am currently writing a program that parses a massive table from a website, and need a way to add a progress bar while parsing.
      I am currently using the function _IETableWriteToArray($oObj, True) to parse the array. I need the progress bar to update as the table is parsed, not just at the end of the parsing.
      Any help at all would be very much appreciated!
       
      *EDIT --> The array I am left with after parsing is $array[0-50000][16]

      My program has to first search for names in Column D that do not match up with column C. I got that search to work using arrays. It was slow and I could not figure out how to delete them so I just manually put coded the names that do not belong. I found their cell location but I do not know how to store that location and delete it.
      This is what I have so far.
      Local $NameToDelete1[6]  = _Excel_RangeFind($OpenWorkbook, "Smith, Bill") _ArrayDisplay($NameToDelete1, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 1", "", 0, "|", "Sheet|Name|Cell|Value|Formula|Comment") _Excel_RangeDelete($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $NameToDelete1[2], $xlShiftUp)  
      Please help, I wanted to have this program done yesterday but I did not see this problem until yesterday.

      So Im trying to make a simple 2d game and make some sort of collision detection so why not to make a 2 dimensional array but i have no clue how  to write it in multiple lines
      Global $map[5,5] = [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0] something like this but it doesn't work

      #include "..\Include\Array.au3" #include "..\Include\File.au3" #include "..\Include\AutoItConstants.au3" Local $aRetArray Local $sFilePath = "n.csv" _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, ",") ; _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, $FRTA_COUNT, ",") _ArrayDisplay($aRetArray, "Original", Default, 8) The above code shows two versions of _FileReadToArray and both don't work as expected.
      The first one doesn't use the comma as a delimiter. (so I get a single column array)  I tried adding "Default" between $aRetArray and "," then it told me it had an incorrect number of parameters. 

      I looked again at the documentation:
       
      #include <File.au3> _FileReadToArray ( $sFilePath, ByRef $vReturn [, $iFlags = $FRTA_COUNT [, $sDelimiter = ""]] )
      And I with or without the flags params I should be getting a 2D array due to my file being a csv. 
      I then tried a regular flag, $FRTA_COUNT, and it tells me that I'm using a variable $FRTA_COUNT while it's not declared. Tried putting in 1 instead and it told me again, incorrect number of params.

      I need to perform a subtotal in excel and I would like to automate this process using Autoit if possible like always any and all help will be greatly appreciated. 
      I can not find a good example but the two from Microsoft. Here is one of the two from msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vba/excel-vba/articles/range-subtotal-method-excel
      I do not really understand how to translate this into AutoIt, but I gave it a try and here is what I have.
      $OpenRange      = "A1:E200" $xlSum          = -4157 $Added_Array[2] = [2, 3] $OpenRange.Subtotal("B1", $xlSum, $Added_Array, True, False, True) I just need to perform a subtotal on a range based on a header called department, and then perform a sum on the results.
