Merge cvs file to excel file

18 posts in this topic

My goal is to have some info I got in a comma CVS file merged with a excel doc.

In the excel.doc the search column is B and I need to do it from row 8, because 1-7 is locked.

I really hope someone can help me.

This is what I have tried:

#include <Excel.au3>
#include <FileConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
; Create a constant variable in Local scope of the message to display in FileOpenDialog.
Local Const $sMessage = "Select a single file of any type."
; Display an open dialog to select a file.
Local $sFileOpenDialog = FileOpenDialog($sMessage, @WindowsDir & "\", "All (*.*)", $FD_FILEMUSTEXIST)
If @error Then
    ; Display the error message.
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "No file was selected.")
    ; Change the working directory (@WorkingDir) back to the location of the script directory as FileOpenDialog sets it to the last accessed folder.
    FileChangeDir(@ScriptDir)
    Exit
Else
    ; Change the working directory (@WorkingDir) back to the location of the script directory as FileOpenDialog sets it to the last accessed folder.
    FileChangeDir(@ScriptDir)
    ; Replace instances of "|" with @CRLF in the string returned by FileOpenDialog.
    $sFileOpenDialog = StringReplace($sFileOpenDialog, "|", @CRLF)
    ; Create application object and open an example workbook
    Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
    If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example", "Error creating the Excel application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
    Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sFileOpenDialog)
    If @error Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example", "Error opening workbook '" & @ScriptDir & "\Extras\_Excel1.xls'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
        _Excel_Close($oExcel)
        Exit
    EndIf

    ; *****************************************************************************
    ; Find all occurrences of string "=C10*10" in the formulas, exact match
    ; *****************************************************************************
    Local $aResult = _Excel_RangeFind($oWorkbook, "Maskprov 7", "B8:B1739", Default, $xlWhole)
    If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 2", "Error searching the range." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 2", "Find all occurrences of string '=C10*10' in the formulas, exact match." & @CRLF & "Data successfully searched.")
    _ArrayDisplay($aResult, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 2", "", 0, "|", "Sheet|Name|Cell|Value|Formula|Comment")
EndIf

This is my result:

Row|Sheet|Name|Cell|Value
[0]|Consultant OU - Questions - EME|$B$1573|Maskprov 7|Maskprov 7

But how do I use this info to add text into the excel doc?

 


Yours sincerely

Kenneth.

Hello @Valnurat

Quote

In the excel.doc the search column is B and I need to do it from row 8, because 1-7 is locked.

If is an excel file it must be excel.xls or .xlsx file.

 

Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sFileOpenDialog)

This line is not right you _Excel_BookOpen expect an excel file.
Should be something like this:
 

Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, @ScriptDir & "\Excel.xlsx", Default, Default)

Finally if you are going to Write the info in the CVS file to the Excel file you don't need _ExcelRangeFind at all...

Anyways is not very clear for me if you want to write to the Excel File some data read from the CVS file or you want to write to the CVS file some data read from the excel file.

Yes, sorry. It was old code.

I have changed it a little.

#include <ExcelModify.au3>

    ; Display the error message.

        Local $aResult = __Excel_RangeFind($oWorkbook, $aCSVfile[$i][7], "B:B", Default, Default)
        If Not @error And IsArray($aResult) Then
        Switch UBound($aResult)

            Case Else
                MsgBox(0,"2","More than 1")
        EndSwitch
        EndIf
    Next
EndIf

but I would like to insert text into the excel in column "K" e.g.

You need to clear you goals, you lost me.
You want to Write to the Excel file the data you read from the CVS file?
If the answer is YES, then again: you don't need RangeFind you need _Excel_RangeWrite()

:D

But I need to search for a name in the excel. When I have found it, then I need to put in data I have in my CVS file.

Valnurat,
I think I understand what you need.
I stripped down your script as far as possible because you are overcomplicating things. With this script I try to make it work.
To make it work on your side simply process those lines marked with " ; >> Replace with above line".

; #include <ExcelModify.au3>
#include <Excel.au3> ; >> Replace with above line
#include <FileConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <File.au3>
Global $aCSVfile[0][12]
; Create a constant variable in Local scope of the title to display in FileOpenDialog.
Local Const $sTitle = "Select a single input file (CSV format)."
Local Const $sTitleExcel = "Select a single Excel file as output."
; Display an open dialog to select a file.
Local $sCVSFileOpenDialog = FileOpenDialog($sTitle, @WindowsDir & "\", "All (*.*)", $FD_FILEMUSTEXIST)
; Display the error message.
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "No file was selected.")
_FileReadToArray($sCVSFileOpenDialog, $aCSVfile, Default, ";")
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Error", "Error reading CSV input file: " & $sCVSFileOpenDialog & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error)
_ArrayDisplay($aCSVfile, "2D array - count", Default, 8)
Local $sExcelFileOpenDialog = FileOpenDialog($sTitleExcel, @WindowsDir & "\", "Excel files (*.xls*)", $FD_FILEMUSTEXIST)
; Display the error message.
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "No file was selected.")
; Create application object and open the workbook
Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF", "Error creating the Excel application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sExcelFileOpenDialog)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF", "Error opening workbook '" & $sExcelFileOpenDialog & "'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)

; *****************************************************************************
; Find all occurrences of string "=C10*10" in the formulas, exact match
; *****************************************************************************
For $i = 1 To $aCSVfile[0][0]
    MsgBox(0, "", $aCSVfile[$i][7])
    ; Local $aResult = __Excel_RangeFind($oWorkbook, $aCSVfile[$i][7], "B:B", Default, Default)
    Local $aResult = _Excel_RangeFind($oWorkbook, $aCSVfile[$i][7], "B:B", Default, Default) ; >> Replace with above line
    If Not @error And IsArray($aResult) Then
        Switch UBound($aResult)
            Case 0
                MsgBox(0, "0", "Empty")
            Case 1
                _ArrayDisplay($aResult, "Excel UDF", "", 0, "|", "Sheet|Name|Cell|Value|Formula|Comment")
                MsgBox(0, "1", $aResult[0][2])
            Case Else
                MsgBox(0, "2", "More than 1")
        EndSwitch
    EndIf
Next

Ok then you need _Excel_RangeFind() and you need _Excel_RangeWrite()

Anyways in order to help you more and need more info:
-Example CVS file or example data you will read from that file
-Example Excel file or example data you will have on that Excel File.

To Search on the entire Workbook you could use simple as this:

Local $aResult = _Excel_RangeFind($oWorkbook, "value to find")

Then Based on that result you use _Excel_RangeWrite() to write the values you read from the CVS file.

$aResult[0][2] = Paulina

$aCSVfile[$i][1] =03/10/2016 09:30:06

 

But I think I need to hand pick the info from my CVS file.

I tried this:

_Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook,$oWorkbook.Activesheet, "Yes","C"& StringTrimLeft($aResult[0][1],3))

and I could see it was added to the same row in column 'C'

$aResult[0][1]=$B$1573

"Paulina" is wrong. Should be the cell address returned by _Excel_RangeFind.

aha.

_Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, Default, $aCSVfile[$i][1], $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range($aResult[0][1]).Offset(0, 1))

But what if I wanted $aCSVfile[$i][1] on cell 'K'?

Offset (in this case) defines how far to the right of the cell in column B you want to write the data to. K would be 9.

_Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, Default, $aCSVfile[$i][1], $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range($aResult[0][1]).Offset(0, 9))

Search the entire Workbook:
 

Local $aResult = _Excel_RangeFind($oWorkbook, "value to find")

And as @water said you will have in $aResult[2] the Address of the cell then just increment that to find the next cell to the right(I assume) and write there with _Excel_RangeWrite().
I suppose that  this is the same that .Offset(0,1) do(the best way to do it I think)

Sorry water I don't see your previous post.

Search the entire Workbook:

Why search the whole workbook? He just wants to WRITE the data to another column (at least that's how I understand his post).

Because I don't know where he search for a match, if he only search for a match on a single Column where there will be for example Names then you are completely right.
But if he search for a match that could be on any column then he need to search in the entire Workbook.

      I am trying to automate the windows GUI application, in the main window of this application i have one gridview control in it, and when you click on the any row of the gridview separate windows will be opened based on the selection of the row. 
      we have our existing framework implemented using the core java,  i have used AutoITX4java.jar file to automate the above application. and controlCommandListView options used to click on grid view row item. nothing is working. 
      my question is AutoIT can be used/called directly from java file??? instead of using the AutoITX4java.jar file???
      AutoIT supports GridView automation??? like gridview count and gridivew row item click event automation ect...????
