Strange Problem in Excel

5 posts in this topic

Hi all,
I am playing with an excel file. I wrote this function to insert some data from an array to excel sheet. Please look my code. When i run this, everything will br fine and i will get the MsgBox saying "Inserted". But then if you double click the excel file in script directory, you can't see the data. You can't even see the work book. Only excel will be opened. What is the problem ?. Any idea ?

This is my code

#include <Excel.au3>

Func ExcelInsertion()
    
    Local $sxlPath = @ScriptDir & "\Test.xlsx"
    Local $oxlObj = _Excel_Open(False)
    If @error Then MsgBox(0, "", "No Object Created" & @CRLF & @error)
    
    Local $oxlWB = _Excel_BookOpen($oxlObj,$sxlPath,False,False)
    If @error Then MsgBox(0, "","No Book is opened" & @CRLF & @error)
    
    Local $oxlSheet = $oxlWB.Worksheets("Sheet1")
    Local $aData = ["This is", "A Test", "To Insert","Data into", "Excel"]
    
    Local $iLastRow = $oxlSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count
    For $i = 0 To 4
        $oxlSheet.Cells($iLastRow + 1, $i + 1).Value = $aData[$i]
    Next
    
    Local $save = _Excel_BookSave($oxlWB)
    _Excel_Close($oxlObj)
    MsgBox(0,"","Inserted")
    
EndFunc

ExcelInsertion()

For testing, i am providing the script file and the excel file here.

Please check the remarks in _Excel_BookOpen. When you open a workbook invisible you have to make sure to make it visible again before saving. Else you get what you see now - nothing ;)

Correct me if i am wrong. I have opened a workbook invisible and did some work. Then i closed the book and the program. Then that game is over. I have tried to open the excel file right after closing the entire script. This is my thought. 

Edit = Anyways, problem solved. But i didn't understand properly. I am assuming that the script is setting this workbook up to permanantly invisible.

As the help file says:

"When setting $bVisible = False when opening a Workbook make sure to set the Workbook to visible again before saving the Workbook.
Use $oExcel.Windows($oWorkbook.Name).Visible = True to make the Workbook visible again.
Else the Workbook will not be shown when you manually open it using Excel.
Most of the time this parameter is not needed. Using $bVisible = False in _Excel_Open is the preferred way."


This is not being reset when the workbook gets saved.

      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...

      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

      Why is my code not writing X in cell D1? 
      #include <Excel.au3> Global $r = 1,$oExcel Excel () Func Excel() While ProcessExists("EXCEL.EXE") $ms = MsgBox(5,"","Process error. You have an Excel sheet open. You must close it in order to let this program work. Please close it now.")

Else $oExcel = _Excel_Open() $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookNew($oExcel, 2);this is here to create the xls file if it does not exist. EndIf EndFunc Sleep (2000) _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, "X", "D" & $r) Exit
