_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

      I am still a noob and not a programmer, would greatly appreciate your help.
       
      Task:
      Open Excel file with file path and name: C:\Users\GENOBEAUTYPC1\Desktop\ACTIVE BEAUTY LABELS\BeautyMe Label 200ml ACTIVE VERSION.xlsx
      This file path and name is saved in the variable: $sAnswer
      Go to Excel Tab called "formular"
      Go to Cell A1
      Insert the text saved in the variable: $sAnswer2
      ATTENTION!!! This has 2 problems.
      Problem number 1: This text contains special characters that need to be interpreted as raw text. (content is: Gemischt für#30 ml#Mindestens haltbar bis#Maria Wallerstorfer#Anwendung: Täglich 1x morgens auf das gereinigte Gesicht auftragen. Augenkontakt vermeiden.#Über 0 C° und unter 25 C° lagern.#Lot:N8A1028/D30/V2.1#Genome Plus GmbH#Georg-Wrede-St. 13, D-83395 Freilassing#GEN SERUM#DAY)
      Problem number 2: This textis longer than 255 characters.
       
      Can anyone help me?
       
      I try to do it really primitively by opening the excel, waiting until it is open, clicking where the tab is, clicking where the cell is and inserting the content of the variable, but I am stuck at the point where I am limited by 255 characters.
       

      ; Opening the right excel FileChangeDir
                  tooltip("File exists and is called:"&$sAnswer ,300,300)
                  ShellExecute($sAnswer ,"" ,"" ,"" , @SW_MAXIMIZE)
                  sleep(7000)
                  
                  tooltip("Now lets insert the right content into the excel",300,300)
                  MouseClick("left",226,1004)

      Hi guys. I know this is a newbie topic, very newbie, but i've read a lot of stuff and still don't get it. I just need to copy something from Excel cell, paste this in other program, copy something in this program and paste in other Excel cell. Something like...
      Copy A2 Use some WindowActivate and MouseMove stuff and CTRL+C (not a problem) Go back to the Excel sheet Paste that content in C2 Then Copy A3 Use some WindowActivate and MouseMove stuff and CTRL+C (not a problem) Go back to the Excel sheet Paste that content in C3 ... And it goes on The problem is, how can i "communicate" with Excel and do this row change? Like A2 to C2 and A3 to C3 ... In a efficient way that can be done like hundreds of times.
      Very newbie question but still not understanding this.
       
      Ty guys.

      Dear members of the forum,
      I need to open excel files that may or may not need a password and finally move the files that needs password to manual queue.
      Is there a fastest way to do this?
       
      PS: I have a huge respect for the rules of this forum. I am not asking assistance to override any security measure. I just need to segregate the files that needs passwords.
