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.

      I'm trying to insert the following formula in cell A2 using my script:
      =if(A1=""; "YES"; "NO")
      To my understanding, the line of code should be similar to this:
      _Excel_RangeWrite($MasterFile, Default, "=if(A1=""; "YES"; "NO")", "A2")
      However, it does not work, probably due to the multiple quotation marks that confuse the script :C
      How do I avoid this problem?

      Hi everybody,
      i have a question about Excel, i have to create several charts one below the other dynamically.
      I have thought to use:
       
      $oRangeLast = .UsedRange.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeLastCell) $iRowCount = .Range(.Cells(1, 1), .Cells($oRangeLast.Row, $oRangeLast.Column)).Rows.Count  
      And then to use it in this way:
      $Graph_position = "=Test1!A"&$iRowCount+2&":K"&$iRowCount+24 But it doesn't work with charts.
      Does anyone have a suggestion?
