_ExcelRangeFind error in line 656

Recommended Posts

Good day everyone!

I'm having a problem with my underconstruction excel script (again... , sorry haven't used autoIT for a while, pretty sure this is a basic error as well)

If $xls2 = 1 Then
        $ExcelName = $aWorkBooks[2][1]
        $ExcelPath = $aWorkBooks[2][2]
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel", " Excel file path: " & $ExcelPath)
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel", " Excel file name: " & $ExcelName)
    EndIf

    If $xls3 = 1 Then
        $ExcelName = $aWorkBooks[3][1]
        $ExcelPath = $aWorkBooks[3][2]
        ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel", " Excel file path: " & $ExcelPath)
    EndIf


$ExcelObject = _Excel_BookAttach($ExcelName, "filename")
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_BookAttach Example 2", "Error attaching to '" & $ExcelObject & "'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_BookAttach Example 2", "Search by 'filename':" & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Successfully attached to Workbook '" & $ExcelObject & "'." & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Value of cell A2: " & $ExcelObject.Activesheet.Range("A2").Value)


$knkod = _Excel_RangeFind($ExcelObject, "knkod")
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 1", "Error searching the range." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 1", "Find all occurrences of value 'knkod' (partial match)." & @CRLF & "Data successfully searched.")
_ArrayDisplay($knkod, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 1", "", 0, "|", "Sheet|Name|Cell|Value|Formula|Comment")

I ask my users, to only run one excel instances while starting my script (so I can develope a simple a script I can, and then upgrade it once I code like i was able to, once again...), thats why I dont use UBound but give an array of 4 for possible running excel detection. If its needed I can easly add to array size for now.

I check for given file extensions and also have an error+exit if I found more then 1 running excel. Of course I know that my code is pretty childish for now.

I use Excel_BookAttach to attach to the excel object, the script succesfully run, and gives back the value of A2 cell (code basicly copy pasted from help file) but then I get an error in the console that reads:

--> Press Ctrl+Alt+Break to Restart or Ctrl+Break to Stop
"C:\ToolBox\AutoIT\AutoIt3\Include\Excel.au3" (656) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:
$aResult[$iIndex][1] = $oMatch.Name.Name
$aResult[$iIndex][1] = $oMatch^ ERROR
->17:53:47 AutoIt3.exe ended.rc:1
+>17:53:47 AutoIt3Wrapper Finished.
>Exit code: 1    Time: 24.24

(sorry if i should have wrote this some other way)

I suspect that I screw something up with the workbook/worksheet handling or that $ExcelObject isn't an object somehow. I'm not sure, but IsObj return 1 if i check $excelobject

Edit: Maybe there is some kind of problem with the name of the excel? It has "á" in it's name, could that be a problem?

Thank you for your insight! and sorry for the elementary questions

      Hi, I am using excel as input media for my program. The excel file (i tried with .xls, .xlsx and .xlsm format) has inputs which the autoit script reads during the run and performs few calculations. Some times (not always), after the run, when i try to open the excel file manually, the file doesnt open at all in excel. see the screenshot attached. However, if the execute the autoit script, the scripts still reads the existing data from that excel and performs the calcs. I copied the excel file to another computer and there too, it doesnt open.  So, after this, i cannot edit the excel forever (if i need to change any inputs). It is only this particular file that got affected. other excel files works normal.  What could be the problem here.  please help as this is a new challenge for me during my program development.

      Hi,
       
      I've been trying to automate modification of an excel file and the last thing I am stuck on is deleting all the rows where the value of Column 13 is 0. 
      I believe the error is due to me not fully understanding the syntax so this is where I'm stuck: 
       
      Func Hotkey2() Global $aUsedRange = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, 1) _ArrayDisplay($aUsedRange) For $iRow = UBound($aUsedRange) - 1 to 3 Step -1 If $aUsedRange[$iRow][13] = 0 Then _Excel_RangeDelete($oWorkbook.Worksheets(1), $aUsedRange[$iRow] & ":" & $aUsedRange[$iRow], default, 1) If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeDelete Example 2", "Error deleting rows." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) EndIf Next EndFunc  
      While my script properly locates the row which contains value 0 in Column 13, I am not sure how to set it to the corresponding row in the excel workbook?  My above experiment gives me $vRange error and I've been toying around with it to no avail. The only way I get the Script to delete a row is by actually specifying "4:4" or "6:8" etc. 
      Where am I going wrong?
       
      Thanks!

      Ok, here is the deal. I have simple excel file called trans.xlsx. It's located in the directory of script. In general i don't care where to store it. 
      What i do need is to open excel file and copy one by one numbers from cells. I've tried different ways, examples. But i only get error, says: error = 3, extended = 1. I saw different posts from different years. I even tried to use simple example from manual file. But always get error.

      In general my goal get numbers one by one and post it to let's say search filed in my PC one by one. Or to notepad (but one by one, in kind of loop). 
      I've learned how to copy or show in message box some info from other apps. But with excel i'm stuck. 

      I'm able to open needed window based on "title" of excel. But i don't succeed of copying info from cells. 

      Would be appreciate for any help. 
      So, in this code i'm trying at least to read from cell A1. Doesn't matter what Sheet. 

      I use Windows 10, Excel for Office 365. 
      Thank you in advance.
