I'm looking for an cool and easy solution for storage of data. I was thinking of an array, but was stuck in how I can search and move data from one column to another column.

In exampel 1 have some numbers 1 to 3 and they are in my column0

In exampel 2 I want to search for number 2 and move it to C1

In exampel 3 I want to search for number 3 and move it to C1

In exampel 4 I want to search for number 3 and move it to C2

In exampel 5 I want to search for number 1 and move it to C1 and it should be before number 2
 

Exampel 1       Exampel 2       Exampel 3       Exampel 4       Exampel 5
C0  C1  C2      C0  C1  C2      C0  C1  C2      C0  C1  C2      C0  C1  C2
1               1   2           1   2           1   2   3           1   3
2               3                   3                               2   
3

How could this be done?

Have you looked at the Excel functions? You could use _Excel_RangeFind to find the number/char you're looking for, then RangeWrite to move it where you want it.

No, I haven't.

Is it possible to have excel hidden? I don't need to have it visible.

Yes, look in the help file under _Excel_Open for your options.

Is it possible to know the count of every column?

I might look in the wrong spot in the help file, but I don't see any like:

rowcount(ColumnA) or Columncount(A) or something like that.

Look under the anything _Excel_Range*, all of these functions have examples that will show you how to work with a range of cells/rows to accomplish what you want. 

Now, if you don't know what cells/rows will be in use in the spreadsheet, that is a different beast (but one I would think you'd have been more specific in mentioning by now if it were the case) ;)

Give us an example what you try to do and we will tell you how do it in AutoIt.
Please have a look at the wiki and you will see how the Excel UDF works with ranges: https://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/Excel_Range

Hi Water.

I was hoping that the examples in my start post was good enough.

I don't have any code, if that is was you are thinking about. My goal with the post was to find a way to save my data. Not for saving my data to a file. At first I was thinking of having 1 array with 3 columns, but then I thought if it was possible to do what my startpost examples shows. Then I was thinking about to have 3 arrays that would show 1 columns each and then just move the numbers from one to another.

_Excel_RangeFind and _Excel_RangeCopyPaste will do what you are looking for. The examples from the help file for those two commands should give you an idea.

Can it also count row for the active column?

I tried the example for RangeCopyPaste. I get attach error. I guess I have to have Excel?

Sure. Excel needs to be installed on the computer where you run the AutoIt script.

I don't think you should do that. I'm not interested to have a excel file.

Can it not be done in an array?

You are talking about "storage of data". How long do you want to store the data? Means: When you restart your script or your computer, should the data still be available?

Oh, I see.

But I don't have an example. The content of my "array" has different content.

Valnarut, you are not making it easy to assist you as you don't seem to be reading the questions people are posing to you. Water has a legitimate question which will help us help you - how long does the data in your array need to exist? Is it only for the life of the script, or does it need to still be on the computer after the script ends?

      Hello Everyone! 
      I'm attempting to create a checklist app that performs other functions. For performance, I would like to check the box, then have the button to the right enabled. After that button is pressed, the second checkbox is enabled, and ready to be checked, allowing the second button to be pressed. After the second button is pressed, the completion/exit button is enabled/shown. I have my code that currently creates the GUI, creates the checkbox, but when you check it it enables the button and the next checkbox. Can't seem to figure out a Case for GUISetOnEvent. Any assistance would be appreciated!
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> ; Below is the GUI interface _DeploymentProcess() Func _DeploymentProcess() $aStep1 = GUICreate("Deployment Process", 475, 345, 500, 175) $CBcStep1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("1. Step 01.", 15, 25, 300, 25) $BTNS1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Email 01", 365, 25, 90, 20) $CBcStep2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("2. Step 02.", 15, 50, 300, 25) $BTNS2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Email 02", 365, 50, 90, 20) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep2, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlSetState($BTNS1, $GUI_DISABLE) $CBcStep3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hurray!

      Hi everyone,

      Is there a way to determine whether the script that is running, is already running, without using;
       
      If WinExists ?

      Or is there a way to use "If WinExists" to determine the script itself?

      The reason I am asking this is because if I want someone to run the .Exe I have and they rename it to whatever they want, how could I then determine in the script to check if there's already an .Exe open, or the script itself is already open?

      Should I use Class, or how do I achieve this?

      Thanks in advance.

      Id like to build a little helpertool for my boss in office but i dont know how to sart it.
      thats no complicated task. im working for an insurancecenter and have to search the customers in different orders and different tags.
      due to my boss is old and not really commen with pc he saves the customers without system.
      eg, customer andreas statham got an insurenca for his car then i got to search for
      andreas statham car, andreas car statham, car andreas statham, statham andreas car, statham car andreas, car statham andreass etc to find all the files from this customer in the harddrive.
      some customers also are fmiliarnamed in one file like andreas statam and monika rog are married an both got a carinsurance then i got to earch for
      andreas statham monika rog car, andreas statham monika car rog,.... this can take real long to find the right customer if i do it from hand.
      how can i realise this someone in here got an excamlple script or has any sugestion?

      Is this possible to make program works like in diagram? There is so much encryption methods and UDFs are they give security? If the $Address will be crypted with some encryption algorithm could be possible to get the value of $Address in easy way? Of course We know its easy too look into autoit code and get value of variable and so We dont want to anyone see $Address value - there are functions Could func1.au3, func2.au3.. be for example func1.php or other type of file? As we know .php files are unnable to see. For example func1 would be read by FileRead() and then Execute() Is this generally possible to do?
      Will it give secure?
      What do you think about? Maybe there is something wrong in this concept or missed.
