_Excel_RangeFind exits with an error

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have an issue with _ExcelRangeFind, i have a it working on another PC but on my pc i just gives me this error

"d:\AutoIt3\Include\Excel.au3" (656) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:
$aResult[$iIndex][1] = $oMatch.Name.Name
$aResult[$iIndex][1] = $oMatch^ ERROR

I have trimmed the script to the absolute minimum.

What iy should do, I give it a number, It opens an excel file, and then it reads through coloumn A and then returns an array when it finds the number in Excel. The number is in coloumn A of the Excel sheet.

The versions of autoit are the same on both machines.

The Excel sheet opens correctly, but it crashes on the rangefind command. I have also tried this $NavisionIDFound = _Excel_RangeFind($Movielistsheet,$NavisionID,"A1:A10000",Default,$xlWhole,True), with the same result.

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <ComboConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

#include <GuiButton.au3>
#include <GuiComboBox.au3>
#include <Excel.au3>
;Includes from source dir
#include <_RecFileListToArray.au3>
#include <_XMLDomWrapper.au3>

$MovielistExcel = "h:\Movie list.xlsm"

LoadDataFromMovieListSheet()

Func LoadDataFromMovieListSheet()
ConsoleWrite("Load Data From MovieList Sheet" & @LF)
$NavisionID = 106266
; Create application object
$ExcelAppHandle = _Excel_Open(Default,Default,Default,Default,True)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox(16, "Excel UDF: _Excel_BookOpen Example", "Error creating the Excel application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
$Movielistsheet = _Excel_BookOpen($ExcelAppHandle, $MovielistExcel, True, Default)
;~ Read the formulas of a cell range (all used cells in column A)
$NavisionIDFound = _Excel_RangeFind($Movielistsheet,$NavisionID,$Movielistsheet.ActiveSheet.Usedrange.Columns("A:A"),Default,$xlWhole,True)

I was running 3.3.12.0, and then I upgraded to 3.3.14.2 to see it that fixed the problem.

Seems to be a bug in AutoIt. If you do not need the name of the cell you could simply remove this line.

Okay, but how can I then search in excel? I have coloumn A where there is a number which I need to find.

Any suggestions?

Use function _Excel_RangeFind as described in the help file after you have modified the following line in the UDF

$aResult[$iIndex][1] = $oMatch.Name.Name

to

; $aResult[$iIndex][1] = $oMatch.Name.Name

Now the name field in the returned array stays empty (not a big problem as users rarely use names for their cells).

It failed on Comments also, so i commented that out, so now it runs it just doesn't give me any result. But I am running a DK version of Excel, can this be the cause?

I will try to find an english version and see if it does anything.

I commented both lines in AutoIt 3.3.15.0 and then it worked and returned a correct result.
What is the value of @error after running _Excel_RangeRead?

Hi Water

First of it was me being a fool. When I commented the 2 lines out it finds the required value.

I didn't have an _arraydisplay after, and that was why I thought it didn't work.

So thanks for the help in figuring this out.

Before I figured this out,I tried to run all 4_Excel_RangeFind examples from the help file. And 1,3 and 4 doesn't run. It errors out like this in all 3

"d:\AutoIt3\Include\Excel.au3" (670) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:
$oSheet = $oWorkbook.Sheets($iIndexSheets)
$oSheet = $oWorkbook^ ERROR

If I try with beta 3.3.15.0 it give me this error for 1 and 4 and the same error as in 3.3.14.2 for number 3

"d:\AutoIt3\Beta\Include\Excel.au3" (656) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:
$aResult[$iIndex][1] = $oMatch.Name.Name
$aResult[$iIndex][1] = $oMatch^ ERROR

I tried to readding the 2 lines in _Excel.au but it still gives the same error.

Hope you can use this information.

Hi,

i have the same problem with my search:

$aSearch=_Excel_RangeFind($oWorkbook_2, $SpalteH, "B2:B10")

I can open the workbook, but i can't search for my variable in the workbook. With or without specifying range and column i get the following message:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include\Excel.au3" (656) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:

$aResult[$iIndex][1] = $oMatch.Name.Name
$aResult[$iIndex][1] = $oMatch^ ERROR

Any advice?

      I am still a noob and not a programmer, would greatly appreciate your help.
       
      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.

      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.
       

      ; Opening the right excel FileChangeDir

      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.
