WORD (sentence words counter and selection)

Recommended Posts

terro

Hi,

I discoverd autoit,;) I'm not a programmer and I get stuck understanding the way word.au manage the sentences in Word 2010.

1) I need to start setting the cursor at the beginning of the Word document.

Then use a kind of loop on the entire document

select the first sentence with 6 words display a message "OK" (the only way I found is unelegant key sequence F8+ F8+F8.:sweating:)

then get and select the next sentence with six words and display "OK".

2) how to remove the "double or triple carriage return" in the same document

Here my piece of code

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <Word.au3>

; Create application object
Local $oRange, $oWord = _Word_Create(),$oRangeFound, $oRangeText
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Word UDF: _Word_DocRangeSet Example", _
        "Error creating a new Word application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
; Open the test document
Local $oDoc = _Word_DocOpen($oWord, @ScriptDir & "\Extras\Test.docx", Default, Default, True)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Word UDF: _Word_DocRangeSet Example", _
        "Error opening '.\Extras\Test.docx'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)

For $I = 1 To 235 Step 1 ; sentence counter
 $oRange = _Word_DocRangeSet($oDoc, -1, $wdParagraph, $I, Default,0)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Word UDF: _Word_DocRangeSet Example", _
        "Error setting/expanding range." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
$oRange.Select

Send("{F8}")                ;X3 (F8) allows to select a sentence
Send("{F8}")
Send("{F8}")
sleep(400)                    ; MsgBox(0, "", "OK")
Send("{ESCAPE}")     ; free the sentence selection
Send("^{DOWN}")       ; get to the next sentence

Next

Thank you for your help.

Scene 1 in the example script in the help file for function _Word_DocRangeSet should show you how to get statistics.

Thanks water,

Is there a way to detect and skip any table (containing some text) using $oRange.

The aim is to select sentences (avoiding any text in table cells).

Thank you

You could process all tables and count words/sentences. Then process the whol document and count word/sentences. Subtract the results from the tables part for the final result.

      I have a Word document containing a 9-column table where row 1 is the column headers. My goal is to read the table into a 2d array, remove some rows, update some fields, and add a few rows to the end. The resulting array will likely be a different length. Next, I want to write the data back into the table. If it's easier, I can write the data to a new document from a template containing the same table header with a blank 2nd row.
      Here's my early attempt:
      Local $oWord = _Word_Create() Local $oDoc = _Word_DocOpen($oWord, $sFile) Local $aData = _Word_DocTableRead($oDoc, 1) $aData[3][5] = "Something else" Local $oRange = _Word_DocRangeSet($oDoc, 0) $oRange = _Word_DocRangeSet($oDoc, $oRange, $wdCell, 9) _Word_DocTableWrite($oRange,$aData) This, unfortunately, writes the entire array into the first cell of row 2. What am I doing wrong?

      Backstory:
      Our Microsoft Office Templates shared folder was changed from a DFS share to an Isilon share. example:
      Old Server: \\Domain.com\Office\Templates
      New Server: \\Templates.domain.com\Office\Templates
      The team making the changes overlooked that several hundred thousand documents, had been attached to the old template documents.  So when you open a document which has been attached, it will take a couple of minutes to open, while it tries to locate the old server path.  I've been asked to come in and fix it, so after several hours found that the data is being held in document.zip\word\_rels\settings.xml.rels, I now need to replace the old server path with the new server path.  I didn't want to use dom as that would take too long and found a tool wtc https://github.com/NeosIT/wtc which  works perfectly, takes about 8 minutes to scan a single directory with 4000 documents and fix them.  The problem is the documents are all held on sharepoint and they want to retain the file timestamp, which is easy enough, but they also don't want to keep the "Modified By" apparently they don't like seeing all the documents appearing as "Modified by: Subz"  Anyone know of way to retain the "Modified By" info,

      Good evening everyone
      I am working with Word UDF ( thanks @water! ), and, especially, with the function _Word_DocFindReplace().
      The replace does work everywhere in the document, but, it does not work in Headers or Footers.
      Am I missing something or am I forced to use the code below?
      I have already looked in the Help file ( about _Word_DocFindReplace() ), but there are no mentions about replace text in Headers/Footers.
      Sub FindAndReplaceFirstStoryOfEachType() Dim rngStory As Range For Each rngStory In ActiveDocument.StoryRanges With rngStory.Find .Text = "find text" .Replacement.Text = "I'm found .Wrap = wdFindContinue .Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll End With Next rngStory End Sub Thanks everyone in advance


      Best Regards.

      Hello
       
      Is there anyway to store word documents in Autoit GUI? For example I have a instruction sheet that I want to bundle up with the exe.

      So a user simply clicks the icon and the stored document will launch  (Something like how you can add objects like excel sheets in word documents )

      (I Know we can launch word files from script directory)
