Excel Range usage with Cells [solved]

Recommended Posts

UEZ

I'm stuck on how to use for range selection .Cells function.

Instead of

_Excel_RangeSort($oWorkbook, Default, Default, "AD:AD", Default, Default, $xlYes, False, Default, "AE:AE", Default, "L:L", Default)

and

$aResult = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, 1, "S2:AB" & $iRows)

which works properly I want to use Cells to select the range.

 

Why? Because the Excel sheet was modified and an additional row was inserted. I want to create the script more dynamically by selection it with Cells because I can search for the column headers.

Any idea?

 

Thanks.

$oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells(x,y)
In the wiki you'll find a page where some special ranges are described.

Thanks water!

$aResult = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, 1, $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range($oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells(2, 18), $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells($iRows, 27)))

works for this particular line.

Does it works the same way also for _Excel_RangeSort?

 

Btw, is should be $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells(y,x)! ;)

All _Excel* functions accept a range object or an "A1" notation.
The following properties and methods return a range:

Thanks water, I got it worked now.

;before
_Excel_RangeSort($oWorkbook, Default, Default, "AD:AD", Default, Default, $xlYes, False, Default, "AE:AE", Default, "L:L", Default)

;after
_Excel_RangeSort($oWorkbook, Default, Default, _
    $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range($oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells(2, $iPos_Shelf + 1), $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells($iRows, $iPos_Shelf + 1)), Default, Default, $xlYes, False, Default, _
    $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range($oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells(2, $iPos_Slot + 1), $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells($iRows, $iPos_Slot + 1)), Default, _
    $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range($oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells(2, $iPos_ModelType + 1), $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells($iRows, $iPos_ModelType + 1)), Default)



;before
$aResult = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, 1, "S2:AB" & $iRows)

;after
$aResult = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, 1, $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range( _
                            $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells(2, $iPos_Region + 1), _
                            $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells($iRows, $iPos_GN + 1)))

 

Outlook issue still ongoing... :think:

 

Edit:

_Excel_RangeSort($oWorkbook, Default, Default, _
    $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range($oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells(2, $iPos_Shelf + 1), $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells($iRows, $iPos_Shelf + 1)), Default, Default, $xlYes, False, Default, _
    $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range($oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells(2, $iPos_Slot + 1), $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells($iRows, $iPos_Slot + 1)), Default, _
    $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range($oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells(2, $iPos_ModelType + 1), $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Cells($iRows, $iPos_ModelType + 1)), Default)

doesn't work properly. The transformation e.g. of "AD:AD" seems to be different.

Workaround:

$oMatch = $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range("A1:ZA1").Find("Shelf", Default, $xlValues, $xlPart, Default, Default, False)
$sPos_Shelf = StringRegExpReplace($oMatch.Address, "\$(.+)\$\d*", "$1")
$oMatch = Null
$oMatch = $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range("A1:ZA1").Find("Slot", Default, $xlValues, $xlPart, Default, Default, False)
$sPos_Slot = StringRegExpReplace($oMatch.Address, "\$(.+)\$\d*", "$1")
$oMatch = Null
$oMatch = $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range("A1:ZA1").Find("Model Type", Default, $xlValues, $xlPart, Default, Default, False)
$sPos_ModelType = StringRegExpReplace($oMatch.Address, "\$(.+)\$\d*", "$1")
$oMatch = Null

Glad you got it working :)

The Outlook issue is still on my ToDo-List but I'm quite busy at the moment. Can only spend a few minutes to answer some threads but do not have the time to check your problem at the moment.
Will keep you informed.

      Task:
      Open Excel file with file path and name: C:\Users\GENOBEAUTYPC1\Desktop\ACTIVE BEAUTY LABELS\BeautyMe Label 200ml ACTIVE VERSION.xlsx
      This file path and name is saved in the variable: $sAnswer
      Go to Excel Tab called "formular"
      Go to Cell A1
      Insert the text saved in the variable: $sAnswer2
      ATTENTION!!! This has 2 problems.
      Problem number 1: This text contains special characters that need to be interpreted as raw text. (content is: Gemischt für#30 ml#Mindestens haltbar bis#Maria Wallerstorfer#Anwendung: Täglich 1x morgens auf das gereinigte Gesicht auftragen.

      Problem number 2: This textis longer than 255 characters.
       
      Can anyone help me?
       
      I try to do it really primitively by opening the excel, waiting until it is open, clicking where the tab is, clicking where the cell is and inserting the content of the variable, but I am stuck at the point where I am limited by 255 characters.

      Hi guys. I know this is a newbie topic, very newbie, but i've read a lot of stuff and still don't get it. I just need to copy something from Excel cell, paste this in other program, copy something in this program and paste in other Excel cell. Something like...
      Copy A2 Use some WindowActivate and MouseMove stuff and CTRL+C (not a problem) Go back to the Excel sheet Paste that content in C2 Then Copy A3 Use some WindowActivate and MouseMove stuff and CTRL+C (not a problem) Go back to the Excel sheet Paste that content in C3 ... And it goes on The problem is, how can i "communicate" with Excel and do this row change? Like A2 to C2 and A3 to C3 ... In a efficient way that can be done like hundreds of times.
      Very newbie question but still not understanding this.
       
      Ty guys.

      Dear members of the forum,
      I need to open excel files that may or may not need a password and finally move the files that needs password to manual queue.
      Is there a fastest way to do this?
       
      PS: I have a huge respect for the rules of this forum. I am not asking assistance to override any security measure. I just need to segregate the files that needs passwords.
