Is there a way to avoid that the hidden Excel window will be shown when another instance is opened / attached externally?

Example:

#include <Excel.au3>
#include "..\Office\Outlook\OutlookEX.au3" ;adjust this path!

Global $hGUI = GUICreate("Test")
GUISetState()

Global $aField9[2] = [9, $xlTextFormat]
Global $aFieldInfo[1] = [$aField9]
Global $oWorkbook = Null, $oExcel = _Excel_Open(False, False, True, False, True), $oOutlook = _OL_Open()
Global $sWorkbook = @ScriptDir & "\Test.txt", $sExcel = @ScriptDir & "\Test.xlsx"
$oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpenText($oExcel, $sWorkbook, 2, $xlDelimited, Default, True, ",", $aFieldInfo, ".", Default, Default, 65001)

$iRows = $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count - 1
$iColumns = $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Columns.Count - 1


$oOutlook_Mail = $oOutlook.CreateItem(0)
With $oOutlook_Mail
    .To = ""
    .CC = ""
    .BCC = ""
    .Subject = "Test"
    .Attachments.Add($sExcel, 1, 1)
    .Display
EndWith

Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = -3

_OL_Close($oOutlook)
_Excel_Close($oExcel, False, True)

 

When I start the script it will load the comma separated text file hidden in the background, open a new Outlook window and attach an Excel file.

Now, when I double click the attachment in the Outlook window to open the attachment also the hidden Excel window is shown.

How can I avoid that the hidden window is shown?

 

I'm using Office 2013.

Can't you close Excel before displaying the mail item?

No, the text file opened by Excel is needed to display data according to the selection made by the user.

Maybe

$oExcel.Windows($oWorkbook.Name).Visible = False

after _Excel_BookOpenText does the trick? This is executed when $bVisible is set to False for function _Excel_BookOpen.

That's not working because the Excel functions after this trick will not work anymore

Getting an em

A COM error as been triggered
Number is: 80010105
Scriptline is: 292
WinDescription is: The server threw an exception

 

If I'm inserting the line just before the $oOutlook_Mail = $oOutlook.CreateItem(0) then the hidden Excel window will be shown but the content is not visible.

In this case I'm the user. ;)

 

At the beginning no Excel instances are running.

After starting the script only one instance caused by $oExcel = _Excel_Open(False, False, True, False, True).

Still one instance after text file load

When clicking on the attachment still one Excel instance but two Excel windows are visible now.

 

Excel will be opened with the /dde parameter.

Another question:
Why does the user need to double click the attachment? Can't you just open the original file?

When I look in the registry how Excel.exe is opened then I see the /dde parameter. I just want to mention it.

 

Another question:

Don't ask why a user needs to double click on the attachment. Probably because it is there or just want to check the content before sending it.

 

Some more background information. My scripts takes a huge comma separated text file, loads it using Excel, makes several sorting and filtering to display the data.

The user has the option to save the generated output as an Excel file or mail with the attachment.

I'm sure it's me but I still don't get why you can't close Excel after having done all the processing and before creating the mail.
When the user decides to open the attachment then Excel is started again.

Because the hidden Excel holds the data which is used to display the information. The Excel table holds all the rack information for all the coordinates. The user selects the coordinate and my tool displays the rack with all devices.

Neither I cannot show the code nor some data which is not needed to show my problem. Sorry.

I just tried your example script with AutoIt 3.3.12.0 and Office 2010 on Windos 7 32 bit.
I get two Excel icons in the task bar but can not switch to the hidden worksheet (test.txt).

This code removes one of the two Excel icons but you now no longer can switch to Excel using alt+tab.

#include <Excel.au3>
#include <OutlookEX.au3>

Global $hGUI = GUICreate("Test")
GUISetState()

Global $aField9[2] = [9, $xlTextFormat]
Global $aFieldInfo[1] = [$aField9]

$oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpenText($oExcel, $sWorkbook, 2, $xlDelimited, Default, True, ",", $aFieldInfo, ".", Default, Default, 65001)

$iRows = $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count - 1

I think this is caused by the way you call _Excel_Open and set parameter $bInteractive to False.
Try to set this parameter to True.

Global $oWorkbook = Null, $oExcel = _Excel_Open(False, False, True, True, True), $oOutlook = _OL_Open()

Now the Excel windows is control able but also close able which is fatal for the script.

The best solution would be that the Excel instance which will be created as invisible stays invisible. All other solutions are not 100% safe.

 

Thanks.

The workbook created by _Excel_BookOpenText stays invisible here (I'm running Office 2010).
I use the following stripped down script:

#include <Excel.au3>
#include <OutlookEX.au3>

GUICreate("Test")
GUISetState()

; Excel part
Global $aField9[2] = [9, $xlTextFormat]
Global $aFieldInfo[1] = [$aField9]
Global $sWorkbook = @ScriptDir & "\Test.txt"
Global $sExcel = @ScriptDir & "\Test.xlsx"
Global $oExcel = _Excel_Open(False, False, True, True, True)
Global $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpenText($oExcel, $sWorkbook, 2, $xlDelimited, Default, True, ",", $aFieldInfo, ".", Default, Default, 65001)
; Create Outlook mail
Global $oOutlook = _OL_Open()
$oOutlook_Mail = $oOutlook.CreateItem(0)
With $oOutlook_Mail
    ;   .To = ""
    .CC = ""
    .BCC = ""
    .Subject = "Test"
    .Attachments.Add($sExcel, 1, 1)
    .Display
EndWith
$oExcel.Windows($oWorkbook.Name).Visible = False
Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = -3
_OL_Close($oOutlook)
_Excel_Close($oExcel, False, True)

So with Office 2013 Excel still displays test.txt and test.xlsx when the user opens the mail attachment?

This seems to work for this snippet of code but not for the complete app. I need to check why...

It is somehow possible to check whether the Outlook window was closed / Send button was pressed?

      I'm writing Outlook pst cleaner and now I'm stuck. Compiled script is crashing with OS crash message. When I tryied to run script from editor it's exiting itself (mabye it's some type of crash?) always when it's processing on 4-rd pst file. Here is my code:

      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...

      Dear members of the forum,
      I'm new to AutoIt and I'm having a good time exploring and enjoying the features of AutoIt.
      For one of my tasks, I've to open few particular mails from outlook based on subject of the mails and then print the mails. Can someone please guide me how to do it?
      My question could be very silly for experts. But I'm just a beginner. Kindly advice.

      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...

      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.
