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

Recommended Posts

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.

Cells(Row,Column).Address 

EDIT

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

Or use functions _Excel_ColumnToLetter and _Excel_ColumnToNumber.

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

R is your row number, C = column number

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

      Hey there! 😃
      I am having a problem with the _Excel_RangeFind. I am trying to search for a value in a particular cell range. The script copies the value from the internet. Copying and saving as a variable is working fine, but as soon as it should find the value in excel, nothing happens. ( I am not getting an error)
      #include <Excel.au3> Func Excel() Send("{CTRLDOWN}") Send("{c}") Send("{CTRLUP}") Local $sName = ClipGet() ;Text Local $sShortName = StringTrimRight ( $sName, 1) ;delete one letter Local $bOpenWorkBook = False, $oExcel = _Excel_Open() Local $sFilePath = "C:\Users\Acer\OneDrive\xyz.xlsx" Local $oWorkbook $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookAttach($sFilePath) If @error Then $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sFilePath) $bOpenWorkBook = True EndIf sleep(15000) Send("{LWINDown}") Send ("{up}") ;maximize window Send("{LWINup}") sleep(1000) _Excel_RangeFind ($oWorkbook, $sShortName, "A3:A56") EndFunc Is anyone familiar with this problem or am I just missing some basic stuff? 
      Thanks for help!
