How to convert from x y Excel coordinates R1C1 to A1 notation range?

Recommended Posts

Chimp

Hi
Does someone know if there is an easy way to convert numerical coordinates of row, column to an A1 notation range object (or at least to an A1 notation string)?
that is: if I have 2 numerical values for row and column, say row 3 and column 5, I would get an E3 string or better an $oRange object rappresenting that range (a single cell in this case)
Thanks on advance.

Excel udf has one to do it.

_Excel_ColumnToLetter

I wrote this:

Func _GetNotation($oExcel,$iX,$iY)
    if IsObj($oExcel) Then
        Return StringReplace($oExcel.Cells($iX,$iY).Address,"$","")
    EndIf
EndFunc

Saludos

Bioform

=cell("address", indirect(address(R,C)))

R is your row number, C = column number

=cell("address", indirect(address(6,2))) would return $B$6

      How to use _Excel_RangeSort to sort my excel file by three different headers Column A1, B1, and C1 have headers on which I want to sort by. The headers on which I want to sort are department, employee type, and name.
      I still really new to AutoIt so I do not actually know how to properly start this line or lines of code, to be honest. The example code is the best I can do.
      _Excel_RangeSort($OpenWorkbook, Default, "A1:C1", "1:1", $xlDescending, Default, $xlYes, Default, $xlSortRows) I just need to sort by those three headers in that order of department, employee type, and name, plus in descending order.
       
      any and all help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!

      My program has to first search for names in Column D that do not match up with column C. I got that search to work using arrays. It was slow and I could not figure out how to delete them so I just manually put coded the names that do not belong. I found their cell location but I do not know how to store that location and delete it.
      This is what I have so far.
      Local $NameToDelete1[6]  = _Excel_RangeFind($OpenWorkbook, "Smith, Bill") _ArrayDisplay($NameToDelete1, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 1", "", 0, "|", "Sheet|Name|Cell|Value|Formula|Comment") _Excel_RangeDelete($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $NameToDelete1[2], $xlShiftUp)  
      Please help, I wanted to have this program done yesterday but I did not see this problem until yesterday.
