EXAMPLE: XLS , MDB from scratch with ADOX


Recommended Posts

A one user ask about Creating XLS file with ADO.

 

This was interesting to me so I use uncle google and find this:

EDIT: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms675849(v=vs.85).aspx

 

How you can read in this mentioned above link, This is not posible with ADO but quite easy with ADOX.

Here is AutoIt example:

Some time ago I asked on the forum: how to make SQL Schema comparison of the two databases.
Now Thanks to ADOX I think this is possible to enumerate each DB element and store information about it to XML file.
In that case this will be easy to compare 2 separate XML files at least with WinMerge.
I hope that before the beginning of summer I can do it.

      I have an Autoit script that lists files from a folder into an array list. Is there a way to separate the filenames by an underscore and include the id, version, name and date into separate columns in Excel.
      Example of filename:
      12345_v1.0_TEST Name [12345]_01.01.2022.html
      12345 would be in one column
      v1.0 would be in another column
      TEST Name [12345] would be in another column
      01.01.2022 would be in another column
      .html would be in another column
      Note: filenames always change each day.
      Here is my code that lists the files into column C and then writes the column Headers into Column D, E, F, G. Just need some help with separating them into columns by the _ delimiter

      I am trying to autofill a range. I am getting stuck and I don't understand what I am doing wrong. 
      My goal is to auto fill some formulas that are next to a pivot table in columns A-C. 
      _Excel_RangeWrite($oNewWorkBook,Default,"2000","D3") _Excel_RangeWrite($oNewWorkBook,Default,"=(B3-D3)","E3") _Excel_RangeWrite($oNewWorkBook,Default,"100","F3") _Excel_RangeWrite($oNewWorkBook,Default,"=(C3-F3)","G3") $oNewWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range("D3:G3").Select With $oNewWorkbook .Selection.AutoFill(.Range("D3:G77"),0) EndWith The data is not auto filling. 
      Hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

      Hi, I have 5 notepad files with lot of data in each of it. The data are arranged in lines and i wish to get it pasted/copied into excel.  Say, i need to read notepad1 and paste the contents into sheet1 of excel and notepad2 to sheet2 and so on.  If i read the notepad and paste it line by line, it is taking lot of time.  Is there a way by which i can paste the whole of notepad file into excel sheet(and get it pasted line by line as shown in the attached excel), instead of using code to write it line by line?.. I was using Filewriteline(data, line i) initially to write to excel.  The 'i' value was incremented with for loop and the excel was updated, but this takes lot of time.  The expected excel format is attached here.  any help is appreciated.  thanks
