Writing array into excel cells with line breaks automatically


Recommended Posts

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

      Usually when I collect data from DataBase I need to give EndUser a possibility to select rows which should be taken in the processing loop.
      I was searching on the forum and I'm not able to find any UDF or even example of how to select data from array.
      I have my own solutions but I think they are not worth posting on the forum as it is very old code and I am looking for a better solution.

      Could anybody point me to some examples/solutions ?

      Thank you in advance.

      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

      I have a string containing the full path of an executable and an array of executables without their paths. I am trying to compare the string to the list in the array and if a match is found, remove it from the array. The entry get removed from the array successfully, and after checking its return result, uses it to update the ubound if it succeeded, but it doesn't want to update to the new value. Any ideas what I am doing wrong? It acts like it is read-only.
      #include <Array.au3> #include <File.au3> Local $sApp_Exe = "F:\App\Nextcloud\nextcloud.exe" Local $aWaitForEXEX = [3, "Nextcloud.exe", "nextcloudcmd.exe", "QtWebEngineProcess.exe"] For $h = 1 To $aWaitForEXEX[0] If StringInStr($sApp_Exe, $aWaitForEXEX[$h]) <> 0 Then $iRet = _ArrayDelete($aWaitForEXEX, $h) If $iRet <> -1 Then $aWaitForEXEX[0] = $iRet ;this line doesn't work. $aWaitForEXEX[0] doesn't update and shortly gives Error: Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.: _ArrayDisplay($aWaitForEXEX) EndIf Next

      Hello, the script below will read column A from an excel file - and if a value matches in the browser, it will click the corresponding link and click on a specific button to paste the data, then writes "Completed" in Column B. It will continue to read from the excel file and do the same thing for all the remaining rows.

      What i am trying figure out now is if the excel crashes while the script/loop is running, I want to relaunch the excel file continue to the last row before the excel crashed. So if the value of column B is not marked as "completed", it should continue from that row
      Appreciate any help that I can get to achieve this.
