CSV to Array Troubles

Recommended Posts

JohnnyDepth

Hi all,

 

I have been playing around with AutoIt for a couple weeks now, just making random things for fun.  There is one thing I cannot wrap my head around for the life of me..

 

Here is what I am wanting to do:

I have a csv file with this following data/columns:

Hey,Hey1,Hey2,Hey3

Hello,Hello1,Hello2,Hello3

Hi,Hi1,Hi2,Hi3

(let's say this csv file is located C:\Test Folder\Test.csv)

So the csv is three rows(for this example) and has four columns.

 

I cannot figure out how to get this data out and store it into an array that I can use to type each column into 4 different word docs that are open.  I do not need help with moving the mouse to each word doc, but i just don't know how to get the data out, put it into an array.

 

Once I have the data in an array, I know I can figure out how to loop through, but getting to that point is my problem.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!  Will that bring in all 4 columns of the csv file?  How do I 'sendkey' each column individually after it has been stored in the array?

Yes, when your CSV is named test.csv or you change script to your CSV-name. Just test and see: 29_ArrayDisplay.jpg.dc245314e5e458259d2b

Don't understand, please be more specific about your intention.

Sorry.  I'd like to take the data in an array and type it into certain fields of a website.  So i would want to type column one into a text box field on a website, then column two may be in another text box on a different page of the same website.  Same with column 3 and 4. 

 

I know how to do everything in between such as moving the mouse and waiting for pages to load, but just inserting the individual columns from the csv is what i need help with.

I am no native English speaker so please read Language Reference - Variables specialy Arrays, i hope this example sending each elemnt from the array to NotePad helps a little bit:

#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
Dim $aCSV[1]
_FileReadToArray('test.csv', $aCSV, Default, ',')
_ArrayDisplay($aCSV)
; Run Notepad with the window maximized.
Local $iPID = Run("notepad.exe", "", @SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED)

; Wait 10 seconds for the Notepad window to appear.
$hWnd = WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 10)

For $iRows = 1 To $aCSV[0][0] ;starting in row 1 (row 0 contains dimensions info
    For $iCols = 0 To $aCSV[0][1] - 1 ;starting in col 0
        ControlSetText($hWnd, "", "Edit1", 'Row ' & $iRows & '|Col ' & $iCols & ': ' & $aCSV[$iRows][$iCols] & @CRLF)
        Sleep(2000)
    Next ;col
Next ;row

;single element row 2 | col 3
ControlSetText($hWnd, "", "Edit1", @CRLF & 'row 2 | col 3: ' & $aCSV[2][3] & @CRLF)

; Display the text of the edit control.

; Close the Notepad window using the handle returned by WinWait.
WinClose($hWnd)

Thanks for all your help autobert!  

 

Question, wouldn't the $aCSV[1] need to be $aCSV[3] (assuming it is zero based) since there are four entries per row in the CSV?

For $iRows = 1 To $aCSV[0][0]      ;For $iRows = 1 to the Row Count that _FRTA put in row 0 column 0 (making the useful part of the array 1-based) 

For $iCols = 0 To $aCSV[0][1] - 1  ;For $iCols = 0 to the Column Count that _FRTA put in row 0 column 1 minus 1 (because columns still start at 0)

i assume you mean here, because $aCSV is not a 1D array, hopefully those comments help.

I apologize for the dumb questions, but what does _FRTA mean in your comments?

Got it to work perfectly, thanks again for all the help!  For those curious, here is the code:

 

#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

Global $aCSV[1]
Global $intCount = 0
Global $intRow = 0
Global $intCol = 0
Global $intLineCount = 0

_FileReadToArray("C:\Test Folder\Test CSV.csv", $aCSV, Default, ",")
$intLineCount = _FileCountLines("C:\Test Folder\Test CSV.csv") - 1

While $intCount <= $intLineCount

    $intCount = $intCount + 1
    ;$intRow = $intCount

    MouseClick("primary",63,16,1)
    Send($aCSV[$intRow+$intCount][$intCol])
    Send("{ENTER}")

    Sleep(1000)

    MouseClick("primary",301,16,1)
    Send($aCSV[$intRow+$intCount][$intCol+1])
    Send("{ENTER}")

    Sleep(1000)

    MouseClick("primary",532,16,1)
    Send($aCSV[$intRow+$intCount][$intCol+2])
    Send("{ENTER}")

    Sleep(1000)

WEnd


_ArrayDisplay($aCSV)

      Hello AutoIt community
      I run into speed problem in my script wich i cant solve myself, problem is with decoding texture loop - for better explanation, you need extract from file pallete (16x 16 RGB color) and picture data (224 * 128 byte), then use correct color for your picture data.... nothing extra hard and also texture is quite small 224*256
      it is for my car model viewer/later maybe editor GranTurismo 2 from Playstation 1, so its old dataformat and i cant understand why AutoIt take so long to decode texture when good old Playstation almost 2,5 decades old can do that nearly immediately (when you list through cars in shop or garage)
      My first atempt was create all trought dllstructure, because its easier approach, but it was soooo slow (40-50s for create textures) then i upgrade my routine via arrays, first 3D arrays later only 1D, next i put decoding colors outside loop but it is still not enough, my last version took cca 15s wich is still unacceptable for car model viewer when you click on one carmodel from listview (1100 cars for whole game) and you must wait 15-16s for model to load....  oh and i forgot mention some cars have more then 1 color (much more... 8-9-10 etc) soloading take 8-9-10 times more time
      in attachment i post texture file from GranTurismo 2 for one car (contain only 1 color) and also my dll struct version and array version code
      dll struct version - ± 40 sec (33 without saving)

      Hello,
      Does somebody knows a quick way to split eash word to an array in a text?
      I've a text and want to have each word in that text in an array.

      I tried to get in some way multiple seperators inside stringsplit but couldn't get it to work.
      I hope to get an array like :
      $aArray[0] = "PARIJS"
      $aArray[1] = "AFN"
      $aArray[2] = "Air"
      ....
      sample text: PARIJS (AFN) - Air France-KLM heeft de financieel directeur van het Franse nuts- en vervoersbedrijf Veolia, Philipe Capron, in het vizier om de nieuwe topman van de luchtvaartcombinatie te worden. Volgens de krant La Tribune wordt Capron als favoriet beschouwd om de topfunctie te gaan vervullen. AdChoices Advertentie Volgens bronnen tegen La Tribune is de keuze voor Capron zelfs al gemaakt door Air France-KLM en zal zijn voordracht volgende week worden voorgelegd aan de raad van toezicht bij het bedrijf. Capron zou dan de opvolger worden van de opgestapte topman Jean-Marc Janaillac. In mei trad Janaillac af nadat het hem niet was gelukt buiten de bonden om zaken te doen met het eigen personeel. Sindsdien heeft een interim-bestuur de dagelijkse leiding. De zestigjarige Capron is sinds 2014 financieel directeur bij Veolia. Daarvoor werkte hij onder meer bij mediaconcern Vivendi. Minder macht Overigens zijn er ook geruchten dat de nieuwe topman van Air France-KLM direct een zetel zou krijgen in de raad van commissarissen van KLM. Binnen de Nederlandse divisie, die juist alles op alles zet om minder macht naar Parijs te laten vloeien, is men volgens ingewijden verbolgen over die gang van zaken. ,,Stank voor dank", zo klinkt het in de wandelgangen. Eerder zou Janaillac ook al hebben geprobeerd om een dikkere vinger in de pap te krijgen bij KLM, dat door de bank genomen beter presteert dan haar Franse zustermaatschappij. Dit lukte eerder niet, onder meer door inmenging van het Nederlandse kabinet. AdChoices Advertentie Geruchten Een woordvoerder van Air France-KLM wilde niet reageren op de geruchtenstroom. Het concern gaat er vanuit dat binnen afzienbare tijd een nieuwe bestuursvoorzitter benoemd zal worden. Minister Cora van Nieuwenhuizen (Infrastructuur) wilde evenmin ingaan op geruchten. ,,Ik heb hierover nog geen contact gehad met KLM, dus dat wil ik eerst even afwachten'', zei ze. Tweede Kamerleden spraken deze week tijdens een debat nog maar eens hun zorg uit over de ontwikkelingen bij Air France-KLM. Zij drongen aan op herbevestiging van oude afspraken over de relatief zelfstandige positie van KLM binnen de groep.>Exit code: 0 Time: 28.52

      Hi,
      I'm looking for a way to take a number value from a Row2 of a 2D array and according to this check if files that appear in rows 3-11 in the array exists.
      For example, if the number in Row2 is 5 I need to check for the files in Row 3-6 only, if it is 6 than rows 3-7 and so on.
      I thought on using a FOR loop but I have very little experience with those.
      Can you suggest the best way to do what I need?
      BTW, the files in Rows 3-11 will usually have blank value for any row above the number in Row2 (e.g. Row2 = 5 so Rows3-6 will have values but 8-11 be empty), The values I need are in Column 1 of the array, the name of the key from the INI file that the array was created from is in Column 0.
      Full Example:
      Row2 of Array:
      Col0 = Games# - Col1 = 5
      Rows3-6
      Col0 = Exe2 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe3 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe4 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe5 - Col1 = Path To File
      I need that if Row2 is 5 to check these above for rows if the file exists, if it was 6 then the next row as well and so on up until number 10 in Row2 as it can't go above 10.
      So basically for whatever number in Row2 from 2-10 need to check 1-9 rows from 3-11 to see if the files in Col1 exists and if any of them don't exist it should call a function that shows an error message.
      I'm pretty sure I have the first line of the for look correct:
      For $i = 1 To $aAIO[2][1] Just not sure how to continue from there, also not sure if $i should be equal 1 or 2.
      Help will be appreciated.

      More around this subject (autoit and twitter) i couldn't find on this forum.
      Is there sombody who know's a good way to get live data from twitter to an array inside autoit?
      (I kinda doubt that this isn't tackled before)
      In the end I was hoping to get all tweets from date to date from an specific subject inside a 2D array to work whit.
