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

Global $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
lobal $sWorkbook = _Excel_BookNew($oExcel)

$oExcel.ActiveWorkBook.SaveAs(@ScriptDir & "\Resultados_ola.xlsx")

Global $aLastRow = $sWorkbook.ActiveSheet.UsedRange.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeLastCell)
;~      Global $aLastRow = $oExcel.Cells.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeLastCell).Row
;~      Global $aLastRow = $sWorkbook.Activesheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count




_Excel_RangeWrite($sWorkbook, $sWorkbook.Activesheet, "OLA", $aLastRow+1)

_Excel_BookClose($sWorkbook)
_Excel_Close($sWorkbook)

I got part of this code from other topics, but then i read that the Excel UDF changed and now i don't know what code works anymore xD

So I want to get the last row to get written so i can write in the next row. I tried serveral codes that i found in the forum (the ones in comment) but i couldn't get the value no matter what i did. What am i doing wrong?

Thank you in advance

The code you posted already uses the latest version of the Excel UDF.
How to get the latest used cell can be found in the wiki.

If you notice my script:

Global $aLastRow = $sWorkbook.ActiveSheet.UsedRange.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeLastCell)

I already use the code in the wiki. What i want to know is why it doesn't work in my script.

For example if i write after 

consolewrite($aLastRow)

I get no value...

Because you open a new workbook which is always empty.

Okey you are right, but with this new code it still doesn't work:

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





            Global $sFilePath1 = @ScriptDir & "\Resultados_ola.xlsx"
            ConsoleWrite($sFilePath1 & @LF)

                If FileExists($sFilePath1) = 0 Then
                    Global $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
                    Global $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookNew($oExcel)
                    _Excel_BookSaveAs($oWorkbook, @ScriptDir & "\Resultados_ola.xlsx", "xlsx")
                    

                Else
                Global $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
                Global $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sFilePath1)

                Global $oRange = $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.UsedRange.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeLastCell)
                ConsoleWrite($oRange & @LF)

                EndIf




            _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, "OLA", $oRange+1)
            
            _Excel_BookClose($oWorkbook)
            _Excel_Close($oExcel)

Global $oRange = $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.UsedRange.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeLastCell)
ConsoleWrite($oRange & @LF)

The resulting value in $oRange is an object, which explains why you can't output it to the console. Instead, try:

ConsoleWrite($oRange.row & @LF)

I didn't much care for the consolewrite line what i wanted was that each time i ran the script it write "OLA" under the last cell written. But it did help solve my problem because knowing that i had to add ".row" made it work in the rangewrite! So tahnk so much for the help!

_Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, "OLA", "A" & $oRange.row+1)

            _Excel_BookClose($oWorkbook)
            _Excel_Close($oExcel)

      Good morning
      I would like to know if I can use the Excel UDF to manipulating a .csv file without having Office installed on the PC I'm going to work...
      I read somewhere that it could be done, but I'm here to ask and be sure of what I remember... 
      I'd like to post another question...
      How can I retrieve the handle of a windows from a PID of an .exe?
      I have my script that does a ShellExecute ( which returns the PID of the .exe ), and then, switching a parameter read from a .ini file, adapt the Window on the screen ( Maximize, Minimize, On Top )...
      I tried, but without having success with this:
       
      #Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #AutoIt3Wrapper_Outfile_x64=prova.exe #EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIEx.au3> #include <Array.au3> Local $sFileConfigurazione = @ScriptDir & "\configurazione_exe.ini" If(FileExists($sFileConfigurazione)) Then Local $aSezioniIni = IniReadSection($sFileConfigurazione, "CONFIGURAZIONE_EXE") If @error Then MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante l'apertura del file: " & @CRLF & $sFileConfigurazione & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error) Else ; Lancio dell'applicativo indicato nel file di configurazione Local $iPID = ShellExecute($aSezioniIni[1][1]) Local $hWnd If($iPID <> 0) Then Local $aWinList = WinList() For $i = 1 To $aWinList[0][0] If(WinGetProcess($aWinList[$i][1] = $iPID)) Then $hWnd = $aWinList[$i][1] EndIf Next Switch($aSezioniIni[2][1]) Case $aSezioniIni[2][1] = "MIN" WinSetState($hWnd, "", @SW_MINIMIZE) Case $aSezioniIni[2][1] = "MAX" WinSetState($hWnd, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE) Case $aSezioniIni[2][1] = "TOP" WinSetOnTop($hWnd, "", $WINDOWS_ONTOP) EndSwitch EndIf EndIf EndIf It just set on top the .exe I'm launching...
      Thanks

      Good morning
      I was looking for a method with rename an Excel Sheet, but I didn't find a lot...
      So, I decided to make it in another way...
      Since I have to create a new Workbook, I thought that, creating a new Workbook, deleting the existing sheet, and adding a new one, would be almost the same...
      But I'm encountering a lot of issues, both when I delete the sheet and when I add the new sheet...
      This is what I do:
       
      ; Create the Excel Object... Local $oExcel_PRV_HW = _Excel_Open(False) If @error Then MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante la creazione dell'oggetto Excel." & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error & @CRLF & "Esteso: " & @extended) Else ; Create the Workbook with 1 worksheet... Local $oWorkbook_New = _Excel_BookNew($oExcel_PRV_HW, 1) ; Save the Workbook in order to open it and work with it... _Excel_BookSaveAs($oWorkbook_New, $sFilePreventivo, $xlOpenXMLWorkbook, True) If @error Then MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante il salvataggio della cartella di lavoro." & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error) EndIf ; Open the Workbook to work with... Local $oWorkbook_PRV_HW = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel_PRV_HW, $sFilePreventivo) If @error Then MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante l'apertura del file '" & $sFilePreventivo & "'." & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error) Else ; Here I would add the _Excel_SheetDelete() and _Excel_SheetAdd() as I did, but they return errors... EndIf EndIf Can someone help me out, please? Thanks

      Hi all,
      I think i´m doing something wrong. In the following code, _excel_RangeFind() does not find all occurrences. From sheet1 to sheet9 it does not find the occurrence of row 1, and on sheet10 it find it, but puts it last. Where am I wrong? Thank you very much and sorry for my inglish. The code:   #include <Excel.au3> Local $oAppl = _Excel_Open(True) Local $oWorkbook= _Excel_BookNew($oAppl, 10) Local $namesheet= "hoja";<-- Default name for sheet in spanish language: hoja1, hoja2, hoja3 etc. For $x= 1 to 10;<-- $x completes the name of the excel sheet: $namesheet & $x for $y= 1 to 5 _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $namesheet & $x , "sofia" & " " & $namesheet & $x & " " & $y,"A" & $y) Next Next Local $search= _Excel_RangeFind($oWorkbook, "sof") _ArrayDisplay($search) This is using 3.3.12 version and office 2007.

      Hi Everyone,
      I am a beginner and I am currently learning and practicing what Autoit can do, so kindly pardon if it sound's silly.
      What my program does ----> I had written a program where I have a FOR (i=0 to n) loop which is running for n times. Inside the FOR loop, contents of array is written into excel using _Excel_RangeWrite .
      _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcelDoc, $oExcelDoc.Activesheet, $arrayname, "A1") Problem ------> During every loop run the contents of column A is only altered
      What i intend to do ------> For every loop run (i=0,1,2,3...) I want to write the array contents into respective next adjacent excel columns
      i.e) For i=0 loop, every array content should be written in A Column of excel
      For i = 1 loop, every array content should be written in B Column of excel.
       
      Can anyone give me an idea of  how can i do this? Thanks
