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.

      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

      I was wondering if it is possible to make this code skip to the next row if it reads a blank line?
      I tried this.
      If $aArray = "" Then $r += 1 EndIf #include <Excel.au3> Local $r = 1 Local $aArray = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook) ;~ If $iBox is greater than no. of rows in $aArray then $iBox equals the number of rows in $aArray If $iBox > (UBound($aArray) - 1) Then $iBox = UBound($aArray) - 1 For $i = 1 To UBound($aArray) - 1 ;$i =0 Start from row A If $aArray = "" Then $r += 1 EndIf $sR0 = $aArray[$i][0] ;status $sR1 = $aArray[$i][1] ;first name $sR2 = $aArray[$i][2] ;Last name $sR3 = $aArray[$i][3] ;Last 4 SSN $sR4 = $aArray[$i][4] ;DOB $sR5 = $aArray[$i][5] ;Email Address $sR6 = $aArray[$i][6] ;Mailling Address $sR7 = $aArray[$i][7] ;City $sR8 = $aArray[$i][8] ;state $sR9 = $aArray[$i][9] ;Zip Code $sR10 = $aArray[$i][10] ;Gender $sR11 = $aArray[$i][11] ;Phone WinSetState ("ADM.MCK - Registration Management Desktop","",@SW_MAXIMIZE) WinWaitActive("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 10) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "", ("{F8}")) Sleep (500) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "", ("{F8}")) Sleep (500) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "", ("N")) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "", ("{TAB}")) Sleep (3000) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1", $sR1 & @CR) Sleep (200) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "", ("{TAB}")) Sleep (200) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1", $sR2 & @CR) Sleep (200) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "", ("{TAB}")) Sleep (200) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1", $sR6& @CR) Sleep (200) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "", ("{TAB}")) Sleep (200) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1", $sR7 & @CR) Sleep (200) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1", $sR8 & @CR) Sleep (200) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1", $sR9 & @CR) Sleep (200) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1", $sR11& @CR) Sleep (200) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1", $sR5 & @CR) ;Email Sleep (200) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1", $sR5 & @CR) ;Email Sleep (200) ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "", (FormatDate($sR4) & @CR)) $r += 1

      Hi guys! How are you? Hope you're fine
      I've been using Excel UDF for a while, and I always wanted to post this question:
      "Why, everytime I set the paramter $bVisible = False of the _Excel_Open() function, IF I HAVE AN EXCEL SHEET OPENED, I still can see the Excel opening and doing what I wrote in the script? And, in this case, how can I avoid this?"
      Thanks
