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, $sFilepath2, Default, Default, True)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF:", "Error opening '" & $oWorkbook & "'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
;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))

      Hi,
      I'm looking for a way to take a number value from a Row2 of a 2D array and according to this check if files that appear in rows 3-11 in the array exists.
      For example, if the number in Row2 is 5 I need to check for the files in Row 3-6 only, if it is 6 than rows 3-7 and so on.
      I thought on using a FOR loop but I have very little experience with those.
      Can you suggest the best way to do what I need?
      BTW, the files in Rows 3-11 will usually have blank value for any row above the number in Row2 (e.g. Row2 = 5 so Rows3-6 will have values but 8-11 be empty), The values I need are in Column 1 of the array, the name of the key from the INI file that the array was created from is in Column 0.
      Full Example:
      Row2 of Array:
      Col0 = Games# - Col1 = 5
      Rows3-6
      Col0 = Exe2 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe3 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe4 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe5 - Col1 = Path To File
      I need that if Row2 is 5 to check these above for rows if the file exists, if it was 6 then the next row as well and so on up until number 10 in Row2 as it can't go above 10.
      So basically for whatever number in Row2 from 2-10 need to check 1-9 rows from 3-11 to see if the files in Col1 exists and if any of them don't exist it should call a function that shows an error message.
      I'm pretty sure I have the first line of the for look correct:
      For $i = 1 To $aAIO[2][1] Just not sure how to continue from there, also not sure if $i should be equal 1 or 2.
      Help will be appreciated.

      Hello,
      I'm trying to get data from twitter to an array and so far I found an Twitter UDF whish lookes very intresting but couldn't get it to work.
      It lookes not supported any more(2010) and buggy when i read all te replies.
      More around this subject (autoit and twitter) i couldn't find on this forum.
      Is there sombody who know's a good way to get live data from twitter to an array inside autoit?
      (I kinda doubt that this isn't tackled before)
      In the end I was hoping to get all tweets from date to date from an specific subject inside a 2D array to work whit.

      I got a question:  i am trying to run different functions based upon what i select in these radio buttons.(code below)
      it needs to check server 1. then run function 1 or function 2 after what i selected in the checkbox.
      once that function is done it moves to the next one, until it has been trough all 5 
       
      iv'e tried using while loops with different while $i equals to something but then i manualy need to go in and edit the script every time.

      Hi everyone, 
      I'm currently writing a script that allow me to list all currently installed software on a computer but some of the are listed in the HKLM64 hive of the registry whereas 95% of all others are in the HKLM "normal" one.
      Thing is, I'd like to combine these two reg key into one single ListView item.
      Here's my code so far, knowing that it's working on both cases (changing to HKLM64 or HKLM short)
      Thanks in advance for the help

      Dear members of the forum,
      I need to open excel files that may or may not need a password and finally move the files that needs password to manual queue.
      Is there a fastest way to do this?
       
      PS: I have a huge respect for the rules of this forum. I am not asking assistance to override any security measure. I just need to segregate the files that needs passwords.
