[SOLVED] Another "Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded"

Recommended Posts

SorryButImaNewbie

Hello!

Sorry for the weekly simpleton question, but:

I tried to make a part of my code be able to handle arrays of any size (Before, I used a fixed array size of 4, which is far from ideal, I just wanted it to run)

I szccesfully read the array size, ReDim it and I thought that I can easly read the values I need, but the 5. version of my code is giving me the same error. I'm not sure, how should I use variabels as "array subscripts" (I mean: $Array[!This for example!][!Or this!])

I wrote the following abomination, Its job would be to read through an array of running/open excel instances and find the one with a .xls extension. Then read its filepath and name  so I can make a copy of it a bit down on the line (BTW Anyother insight if you think I'm doing something wrong or not idealy is welcome!) 

Local $aWorkBooks = _Excel_BookList()
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_BookList Example 2", "Error listing Workbooks." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
_ArrayDisplay($aWorkBooks, "Excel UDF: _Excel_BookList Example 2 - List of workbooks of all instances")

;CONSTRUCTION-----------------------------------
;$aWorkBooks array méretezés
If IsArray($aWorkBooks) Then
    ReDim $aWorkBooks[UBound($aWorkBooks)]
    ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Értesítás", "Cucc:" & UBound($aWorkBooks) & "")
    Local $ArrayElement = UBound($aWorkBooks)
    Do
        Local $Int = Int(0)
        ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Értesítés", "Cucc: " & $ArrayElement &" Int: " & $Int &"")
        Local $Array = $aWorkBooks[Int($Int)][1]
        Local $xls = StringRegExp(String($Array), ".xls")
        $Int = Int($Int + 1)
    Until $xls = 1
    $ExcelName = $aWorkBooks[$Int][1]
    $ExcelPath = $aWorkBooks[$Int][2]
Else
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel Array Hiba", "Hiba a formázandó excel felismerése közben.")
    Exit
EndIf

Consol Error:

(242) : ==> Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.:

Local $Array = $aWorkBooks[Int($Int)][1]
Local $Array = ^ ERROR

I try to use an increasing variable to read the array until its find the .xls extension, the values of $Int is okey according to the message boxes

Thanks for the help, wise users of this forum!

Edit:

You find the solution to this problem in the thread below, also the problem developed into an other one, _Excel_SheetList UDF returned with a "funny array" with numbers (see the pic around comment 5-8) the solution was to disable excel addons: Analysis ToolPak and Solver, not sure which one did the trick at the end. Also in this thread you can find a "bug fix" for _Excel_SheetList , in the current version, _Excel_SheetList gave 0 return to every error, master water posted a fix to that (you have to change a 0 value to @error).

Best of luck!

Because the problem blossomd in to a new one, I edit this so others with similar problems may benefit

You ReDim a 2D array to a 1D array with this statement

ReDim $aWorkBooks[UBound($aWorkBooks)]

Drop this statement as I do not see any need for it in your script.

Ohhh, sounds logical, since I only "read in" the array once, I only need to know its size... And yes, its not a 1D array as I display it and can clearly see...

Thank you master water, I also moved the $int = 0 out from the loop, so its value doesnt jump on 1 to 0 making an infinite loop :D (thats help to)

My code right now:

Local $aWorkBooks = _Excel_BookList()
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_BookList Example 2", "Error listing Workbooks." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
_ArrayDisplay($aWorkBooks, "Excel UDF: _Excel_BookList Example 2 - List of workbooks of all instances")

If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_BookAttach Example 2", "Error attaching to '" & $ExcelObject & "'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)

$ExcelSheetListArray = _Excel_SheetList($ExcelObject)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_SheetList Example 1", "Error listing Worksheets." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
;_ArrayDisplay($ExcelSheetListArray, "Excel UDF: _Excel_SheetList Example 1")
$ExcelSheetListArrayMaxIndex = _ArrayMaxIndex($ExcelSheetListArray)

Local $oCopiedSheet = _Excel_SheetCopyMove($ExcelObject,Default,Default,Number(($ExcelSheetListArrayMaxIndex+2)),True,True)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_SheetCopyMove", "Error copying sheet." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)

If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_BookList Example 2", "Error listing Workbooks." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)

I'm getting a new error: (pic added)

I belive Its an error for _Excel_SheetCopyMove, according to help: 

5 - Error occurred when copying/moving the sheet. @extended is set to the COM error code. 

Com error: 0

I aslo added extra code to my snipet, because I realized, the error giving part isn't here, so its makes any rescu attempt a "bit tricky".

This might be a bug in the UDF. Which version of AutoIt do you run?

You need to change the marked line in function _Excel_SheetCopyMove in Excel.au3 to get the COM error code.

If $bCopy Then
        $vSourceSheet.Copy($vBefore, $vAfter)
    Else
        $vSourceSheet.Move($vBefore, $vAfter)
    EndIf
    If @error Then Return SetError(5, @error, 0) ; <== Modify

Ohhh, to what? (I thought the error = 0)

 

So I tried to overwrite excel.au3, but I can't, only with different name (SciTE error)

It's a bug so it does not report @error correctly.

Now it is:

If @error Then Return SetError(5, 0, 0)

but it needs to be:

If @error Then Return SetError(5, @error, 0)

I understand that, but when I try to save it with 0 replaced by @error , I get an error (pic)

What i think I can do, is to rename it to excel2.au3 or something, and then simply #include that?

(Sorry I like to make sure before I do something I dont understand instead of try and make things worse :) )

You do not have write permission to this directory where AutoIt is installed.
Either edit the file as administrator or copy the following code to your script

Func _Excel_SheetCopyMoveEX($oSourceBook, $vSourceSheet = Default, $oTargetBook = Default, $vTargetSheet = Default, $bBefore = Default, $bCopy = Default)
    ; Error handler, automatic cleanup at end of function
    Local $oError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", "__Excel_COMErrFunc")
    #forceref $oError
    Local $vBefore = Default, $vAfter = Default
    If Not IsObj($oSourceBook) Or ObjName($oSourceBook, 1) <> "_Workbook" Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
    If $vSourceSheet = Default Then $vSourceSheet = $oSourceBook.ActiveSheet
    If $oTargetBook = Default Then $oTargetBook = $oSourceBook
    If Not IsObj($oTargetBook) Or ObjName($oTargetBook, 1) <> "_Workbook" Then Return SetError(2, 0, 0)
    If $vTargetSheet = Default Then $vTargetSheet = 1
    If $bBefore = Default Then $bBefore = True
    If $bCopy = Default Then $bCopy = True
    If Not IsObj($vSourceSheet) Then
        $vSourceSheet = $oSourceBook.Sheets($vSourceSheet)
        If @error Or Not IsObj($vSourceSheet) Then SetError(3, @error, 0)
    EndIf
    If Not IsObj($vTargetSheet) Then
        $vTargetSheet = $oTargetBook.Sheets($vTargetSheet)
        If @error Or Not IsObj($vTargetSheet) Then SetError(4, @error, 0)
    EndIf
    If $bBefore Then
        $vBefore = $vTargetSheet
    Else
        $vAfter = $vTargetSheet
    EndIf
    If $bCopy Then
        $vSourceSheet.Copy($vBefore, $vAfter)
    Else
        $vSourceSheet.Move($vBefore, $vAfter)
    EndIf
    If @error Then Return SetError(5, @error, 0)
    If $bBefore Then
        Return $oTargetBook.Sheets($vTargetSheet.Index - 1)
    Else
        Return $oTargetBook.Sheets($vTargetSheet.Index + 1)
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>_Excel_SheetCopyMoveEX

and replace all function calls to _Excel_SheetCopyMove to _Excel_SheetCopyMoveEX so the modified version gets called.

Wow, thanky you so much!

Can I   "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects"  on the folder? Or thats not a good idea? (I try to run as administrator, but I can't, I even tried to make a sgortcut for excel.au3, so I can use the properties/shortcut/advanced to run as admin, but I dont seems to have admin rights for that (its greyed out) which is actually pretty disturbing now that I think about it

Edit:

I tried to run your code, I get an @error = 5, @extended = 1 error on sheet copying

Edit2:

I found @extended = 1 to be the error of Read-only excel object at book_attach, I'm not sure if thats the reason here as well

Did you check that all parameters for _Excel_SheetCopyMove have sensible values?
Does $ExcelSheetListArrayMaxIndex hold a sensible value (means the number of a worksheet that exists)?  I'm not sure as you add 2 to the maximum number returned by _ArrayMaxIndex. If you have 5 worksheets in your workbook thn this value shouldn't be > 5.
Use ConsoleWrite/MsgBox to display this values to check.

According to MsgBox checks, yes, it had a value 1, 1+2 = 3 I had 3 sheets.

I tried Default value, same outcome.

The suspicous part for me is the Excel_SheetList, I displayed that during checking and it returned this, again I have 3 Sheets, none of them can be found in this list.

Edit: Also the $ExcelSheetListArrayMaxIndex value is 1. Which doesn't really make sense to me

I'm not sure.

I have a 2016 "unoffical" version.

Now that I started digging, I found a Shortcut at C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs, which seems to lead into itself (open containing folder), maybe because its the Start Menu folder

I'm not sure actually (I use it for maybe 2-3 years) according to office download I have an up to date version.

Will Edit for more info

Edit:

Well I may spend some time to install a real office... I'm still a student so I should be able to get a fre copy somehow, but downloading it from a "third party" was much quicker, when I only needed it for some school stuffs and basic use. It was much easier for my younger self...

Thy for the troubelshooting master water!

(verziószám = versionnumber)

Edit2: I had a windows update, hoped it will solve the problem, it didn't this is my last update today, thanks for the help! (I love this forum)

I'm not sure it is caused by the Office version.
Does the _Excel_SheetList.au3 example script work for you? Means - IIRC - you should get 3 sheets listed.
Could it be possible that your workbook contains a lot of hidden sheets?
Are there custom made addons active? I once had problems with a badly written addon driving me crazy!

I checked for hidden sheets and looked for other VBA shenanigans, but nothing.

I don't know about custom meda addons, but i don't think so.

Excel sheet list gives an "interesting" error. @error = 2 for _Excel_BookOpen meaning 

Specified $sFilePath does not exist, I think this is because its ask for activation first. I added lines

MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, " Stop ", "Hammer Time!") 

after the _Excel_BookOpen lines in the _Excel_BookList example, to close these (@error = 2 is avoided this way)

Returns empty array with display, picture of array and one excel (they look the same, empty without sheet, I can go to files and open recently used excels)

However! I can see these excels in System information/Softenvierment/RunningTasks I'm not sure that would usually mean that autoit should see it as well.

I try to open some excels (2 so its like the example) and try to list those, maybe It leads to something

Edit: Okey I tried the booklist example... not sheetlist, Trying with sheet list with the added HammerTime msg box to close the product activation It returns an @error = 1 , I don't know, I try to attach to an excel instance where there is something in the file, and list there... I don't understand I use _excel_SheetList in my code and worked there so far (if array dimensions and size were handeld correctly) it displayed the sheets like it should,

My other "idea" of the origin of the problem is that if I list the _Excel_BookList and display it I get back 3 extra thing. I'm not sure what are these (I wrote a script that goes trhought the array searching for -xls extension, so I can simply skip these) I know what the SOLVER is but I don't know it should be displayed by this function. (see: pic2, arraylist)

Could these XLAM files be the source of my problem to begin with? with some excel extension?

I have absolutely no idea what causes your problem :'(
You are sure that you attach to the correct workbook?

Or maybe the problem is caused by the missing activation?

I'm pretty sure (there are no other workbooks open, also before I started to upgrade my code to handel arrays, it attached to the workbook and formated the rows/columns inside just nice, so the script was interacting with it before).

Yes, the missing activation is a possible culprit.... You dont't think that these XLAM files are the problem?

According to the web:
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fileextensions/f/xlamfile.htm

"A file with the XLAM file extension is an Excel Macro-Enabled Add-In file that's used to add new functions to Excel."

So this add-ins might influence the way Excel COM (and hence the Excel UDF) works.
You could try to deactivate the add-ins and check if that makes any difference.

      Hi everyone, I'm at best a noobie.  I have read through the Array helps, and specifically the 2D array help file, and I'm struggling to get my code working.
      I have an array that is read from a file, thats working great.  I'm trying to do some math on the array, so I can find the largest, average, lowest, day over day change %, etc.
      The array read working fine, I get 43 lines, line 0 is 44, and then I get data that looks like
      0519 $10,000
      0520 $10,001
      0521 $10,002
      The data in this array is a single 1D array, breaking it out into 2 columns so I can do the math is what I can get to happen.  
      How do I reference the array to store this data?  Second, how do I assign this data to the appropriate row/column?
      Thanks in advance.
      Dim $all_cash_amounts[UBound($aInput)][2] Dim $max_amount_in_account Dim $min_amount_in_account _FileReadToArray($LC_Check_file_path, $aInput) _ArrayDisplay($aInput) local $date = StringRegExp($aInput[1], "(\d\d\d\d)", 1) local $cash = StringRegExp($aInput[1], "\d+\s(-?[0-9\.\,]+)", 1) ConsoleWrite("Date is: " & $date & @CRLF) For $i = 1 To UBound($aInput)-1     $date = StringRegExp($aInput[$i], "(\d\d\d\d)", 1)     $all_cash_amounts[$i][2] = $date[$i][0], $cash[$i][1]      Next _ArrayDisplay($all_cash_amounts)

      Given an array with multiple columns that is displayed in a listview,
       ===> What is the fastest/most efficient way to create and manage multiple filters and display results in ListView.
      I have a text file that loads into a listview that has string, numeric, and date columns.  The main file contains about 5100 rows. It's loaded into an array and (in this ListView) it's pre-filtered to display a range of rows based on a start and end date.  On the form I have menu options for various filters. (see below).
      I have options to filter on an "Air Date" column (=Today, >=Today, <=Today) and on a numeric field that is either 1 or 0 that indicate Active or Ended.

      For each filter option I have a prebuilt array that holds a subset of the main array based on a single filter.  For the list above I have the main Array and 5 additional arrays.  None of the arrays are updated since this is for "view only" purposes.  This is a short list and I could have done the filtering "live" but I have several of these forms and so kept the same functionality in each. I have another ListView that displays the complete 5100 row list with 3 filters that, when building the filters live was considerably slower than using prebuilt arrays.
      If I want to expand past simple single column filtering, using an array for each filter becomes cumbersome especially if I want to combine filters using AND & OR.
      The text file I'm working with has 16 columns. If I setup filters for 4 columns and include AND / OR capability that would require prebuilding 24 arrays to cover the various combinations.
      If using the slower method of building a filtered array in real time each time a different filter is selected is the only way to go with this then I'll live with it. It is less overhead. .
      Below is the code I'm currently using to "filter" an array.  My next change was going to add AND / OR functionality (see the info above the header for where I was going with this) .
      ; Description ...: Delete rows from an array and only keep rows that meet the crtieria of identified columns. ; ; Next Change: Add AND/OR to combine filters. Use array to hold multiple criteria and values? ; ; Local $aCriteria[][] = [["",$iColNbr1, $sOperator1, $vValue1], ["AND",$iColNbr2, $sOperator2, $vValue2], ["OR",$iColNbr3, $sOperator3, $vValue3]] ; The first set of criteria ["", $iColNbr1, $sOperator1, $vValue1] must start with a "". ; If anything is entered in that first parameter it will be ignored. ; If the first parameter in any additional criteria set is left blank, or it is not OR, it will default to AND. ; If $aArray is 1 dimension with more than one set of criteria, only the first set will be used. ; Any criteria that uses a column that is less than 0 or higher than the total number of columns in the array will return an error. ; ; Recognized data types for this function are: S (String), D (Date), N (Number). ; ; Recognized Operators are: "EQ", "NEQ", "IN", "GT", "GE", "LT", "LE", "BETWEEN". ; ****** Not all operators work with all data types. ; #FUNCTION# ==================================================================================================================== ; Name ..........: _ArrayFilter ; Description ...: Delete rows from an array and only keep rows that meet the crtieria of identified columns. ; Syntax ........: _ArrayFilter(Byref $aArray[, $iCol = 0[, $sOperator = "EQ"[, $vValue = ""[, $iOptionBase = 0]]]]) ; Parameters ....: $aArray - Array being filtered. ; $iCol - [optional] Column to filter.

      Hello. I have a 1D array. Is made in this way:
      1. This is a line Messages: a message etc Context: a context etc 2. This is a line Messages: a message etc Context: a context etc 3. This is a line Messages: a message etc Correction: a correction etc Context: a context etc I need to make something like:
      1. This is a line|Messages: a message etc|Context: a context etc 2. This is a line|Messages: a message etc|Context: a context etc 3. This is a line|Messages: a message etc|Correction: a correction|Context: a context etc For exporting in another software. I need to split every time there is a number when the line start, can be 1. until something like 3.976. Since i don't know if there a 2 line after a number or 3 i have opened this thread. Thanks

      Hello,
      The last couple of day's I was searching on this forum for the best way to put array's inside array's.
      The best example's i found where a little outdatet (2010) whit a lot of pro's and con's.
      Now I've a big script where a lot of computations and big array's are involved, so speed is a big issue.
      Also I wanna try the script below but don't know iff speed is a problem this way or maybe there is a better way to do this.

      Does somebody know's the best way to put array's inside array's and get the data back from them?
      I've made an example of something I was thinking about.
      (maybe something totaly wrong but I'm open for sugestions)
      I'm doing it this way because I don't think I can access the data inside the array (and doing some calculations to it) some other way if the array is inside another array.
      Or is there?
      Thanks in advanced.
      #include <Array.au3> Global $aArray[Random(5,10,1)][Random(5,10,1)] Global $Holder[2][2] For $x = 0 To UBound($aArray,1) - 1 For $y = 0 To UBound($aArray,2) - 1 $aArray[$x][$y] = Round(Random(-1,1),4) Next Next $Holder[0][0] = $aArray $aArray = "" Global $get_array = $Holder[0][0] _ArrayDisplay($get_array)

      Hello,
      I'm trying to randomly change some cells in a array on a given percentage.
      at this point I 've a array whit all 0's and want to change some cells to 1.
      I'm not shure how to do this in a good coding sort of way.
      Also maybe there is a build in function whish I'm not aware of.
      Does somebody know how I can do this in a easy way?
      I was trying to get the total count of cells and get the percentage of it.
      And was stuck when i wanna change the cell.
      please advice, thanks in advanced for your help.
      #include <Array.au3> Global $percentage = 0.2 Global $aArray[Random(10,30,1)][Random(10,30,1)] For $x = 0 To UBound($aArray,1) - 1 For $y = 0 To UBound($aArray,2) - 1 $aArray[$x][$y] = 0 Next Next _ArrayDisplay($aArray) randomize() _ArrayDisplay($aArray) Func randomize() Local $total_to_change = ((UBound($aArray,1) * UBound($aArray,2)) / 100) * $percentage ConsoleWrite( "$total_to_change = " & $total_to_change & @LF ) ConsoleWrite( "total in array = " & (UBound($aArray,1) * UBound($aArray,2)) & @LF ) EndFunc
