Writing array into excel cells with line breaks automatically

Recommended Posts

jonson1986

I'm trying to write data from array into .text file with line break and i did it successfully.

but now I want to write from the same array into already empty excel with with line breaks means each value of array should be written in next cell automatically as it's happening in text file using "Filewrite"

Looking for guidance.

Here is my code;

$file = fileopen(@scriptdir & "\source.txt", 10)
$IE = _IECreate("http://www.example.com")
$source = _IEDocReadHTML($IE)
FileWrite($file, $source)
$target_source1 = _StringBetween($source, '<span>', '</span>')
If Not @error Then
For $i=0 To UBound($target_source1) -1
      FileWrite (@scriptdir & "\save.txt", $target_source2[$i] & @crlf)
; I want to write above array onto excel file
Next
EndIf

@jonson1986,  The help file is your friend. Instead of fileopen, look at opening an Excel spreadsheet:

Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
Local $oWoorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, <Path to your Excel File>)

Then you can write the entire array into the spreadsheet. Look at the second or third example under _Excel_RangeWrite.

Thanks JLogan3o13,

I tried the example to write array but in my codes it's not able to work for me;

here is my code;

#RequireAdmin
#include <IE.au3>
#include <String.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <Excel.au3>
Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
Local $oWorkbook1 = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, @ScriptDir & "\1337x.xlsx", True)
$file = fileopen(@scriptdir & "\source.txt", 10)
$IE = _IECreate("http://www.example.com")
$source = _IEDocReadHTML($IE)
FileWrite($file, $source)
$target_source1 = _StringBetween($source, '<span>', '</span>')
If Not @error Then
For $i=0 To UBound($target_source1) -1
      _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook1, Default, $target_source2[$i], "A1")
Next
MsgBox ('', '', 'Done')
EndIf

You refer to another array as a variable $target_source2, but that hasn't been defined in the code you show.  Working with example.com (an example, I know) I put this together; see if it works the way you want.  There are 2 code sections with the <p> tag in example.com.

#RequireAdmin
#include <IE.au3>
#include <String.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <Excel.au3>
Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
Local $oWorkbook1 = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, "1337x.xlsx", True)
$file = fileopen(@scriptdir & "\source.txt", 10)
$IE = _IECreate("http://www.example.com")
$source = _IEDocReadHTML($IE)
FileWrite($file, $source)
$target_source1 = _StringBetween($source, '<p>', '</p>')
_ArrayDisplay($target_source1)
If Not @error Then
For $i=0 To UBound($target_source1) -1
      _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook1, Default, $target_source1[$i], "A"&$i+1) ; if you want each item in the array in its own cell
Next
MsgBox (0, '', 'Done')
EndIf

      Hello,
       
      I am currently writing a program that parses a massive table from a website, and need a way to add a progress bar while parsing.
      I am currently using the function _IETableWriteToArray($oObj, True) to parse the array. I need the progress bar to update as the table is parsed, not just at the end of the parsing.
      Any help at all would be very much appreciated!
       
      *EDIT --> The array I am left with after parsing is $array[0-50000][16]

      My program has to first search for names in Column D that do not match up with column C. I got that search to work using arrays. It was slow and I could not figure out how to delete them so I just manually put coded the names that do not belong. I found their cell location but I do not know how to store that location and delete it.
      This is what I have so far.
      Local $NameToDelete1[6]  = _Excel_RangeFind($OpenWorkbook, "Smith, Bill") _ArrayDisplay($NameToDelete1, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 1", "", 0, "|", "Sheet|Name|Cell|Value|Formula|Comment") _Excel_RangeDelete($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $NameToDelete1[2], $xlShiftUp)  
      Please help, I wanted to have this program done yesterday but I did not see this problem until yesterday.

      So Im trying to make a simple 2d game and make some sort of collision detection so why not to make a 2 dimensional array but i have no clue how  to write it in multiple lines
      Global $map[5,5] = [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0] something like this but it doesn't work

      #include "..\Include\Array.au3" #include "..\Include\File.au3" #include "..\Include\AutoItConstants.au3" Local $aRetArray Local $sFilePath = "n.csv" _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, ",") ; _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, $FRTA_COUNT, ",") _ArrayDisplay($aRetArray, "Original", Default, 8) The above code shows two versions of _FileReadToArray and both don't work as expected.
      The first one doesn't use the comma as a delimiter. (so I get a single column array)  I tried adding "Default" between $aRetArray and "," then it told me it had an incorrect number of parameters. 

      I looked again at the documentation:
       
      #include <File.au3> _FileReadToArray ( $sFilePath, ByRef $vReturn [, $iFlags = $FRTA_COUNT [, $sDelimiter = ""]] )
      And I with or without the flags params I should be getting a 2D array due to my file being a csv. 
      I then tried a regular flag, $FRTA_COUNT, and it tells me that I'm using a variable $FRTA_COUNT while it's not declared. Tried putting in 1 instead and it told me again, incorrect number of params.

      I need to perform a subtotal in excel and I would like to automate this process using Autoit if possible like always any and all help will be greatly appreciated. 
      I can not find a good example but the two from Microsoft. Here is one of the two from msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vba/excel-vba/articles/range-subtotal-method-excel
      I do not really understand how to translate this into AutoIt, but I gave it a try and here is what I have.
      $OpenRange      = "A1:E200" $xlSum          = -4157 $Added_Array[2] = [2, 3] $OpenRange.Subtotal("B1", $xlSum, $Added_Array, True, False, True) I just need to perform a subtotal on a range based on a header called department, and then perform a sum on the results.
