Excel write in cell not replace

3 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Is there a way to write a string to a cell in Excel without replacing what may be already in that cell? Can this be achieved with a single function? Or will I need to read any potential data first, then join it, and then write to that cell? As the write function replaces what is already in the cell.

Thanks

      Is there an easy way to format a cell to date or currency? I found some old threads that were not much help. 
      I have looked at the wiki but I only see how to format as a number
      I assume there is not a way like I did for making the text bold. 
      Any suggest or help would be appreciated. 
       
       
      I am able to get the format changed to text using
      $oExcel.Activesheet.range("A1:L1").NumberFormat = "@"  
      #include <Excel.au3> Global $sBox Func InputHowMany() While 1 $sBox = Number(InputBox("How many?", "How many?")) If $sBox = 0 Then $iMsg = MsgBox(1, 'Oops', 'Please enter a valid number') If $iMsg = 2 Then Exit Else Return $sBox - 1 EndIf WEnd EndFunc InputHowMany() $oExcel = _Excel_Open() $oExcel = _Excel_BookNew($oExcel) Local $t = 2 Local $w = 1 Local $c = 301 $oExcel.Activesheet.range("A1:L1").font.bold = True Do _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, "Status", "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, "Last Name", "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, "Last Name", "C1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, "SSN", "D1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, "DOB", "E1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, "Email", "F1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, "Mailing Address", "G1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, "City", "H1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, "State", "I1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, "Zip Code", "J1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, "Gender", "K1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, "Phone", "L1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, '=B' & $c, "B" & $t) _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, '=C' & $c, "C" & $t) _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, '=D' & $c, "D" & $t) _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, '=E' & $c, "E" & $t) _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, '=F' & $c, "F" & $t) _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, '=G' & $c, "G" & $t) _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, '=H' & $c, "H" & $t) _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, '=I' & $c, "I" & $t) _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, '=J' & $c, "J" & $t) _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, '=K' & $c, "K" & $t) _Excel_RangeWrite($oExcel,Default, '=L' & $c, "L" & $t) $c = $c + 1 $t = $t + 1 $w = $w + 1 Until $w > $sBox

      I have 2 items (a field box and a bypass checkbox). every time the box is checked i need the field to become writable. unchecked is read only displaying some text.
      this is as far as i got as I am stuck at making it read/write toggle
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> $hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500) Global $hCombo = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 200, 20, BitOR($ES_AUTOHSCROLL,$ES_READONLY)) GUICtrlSetBkColor($hCombo,0xe7e5e5) Global $cbox = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox ("", 40,50,10,20) GUICtrlSetState($cbox, $GUI_Unchecked) GUISetState() Global $sCurrCombo = "" While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit Case $cbox If GUICtrlRead($cbox) <> $sCurrCombo Then $sCurrCombo = GUICtrlRead($cbox) GUICtrlSetStyle ($hCombo, $SS_LEFTNOWORDWRAP) GUICtrlSetBkColor($hCombo,0xFFFFFF) MsgBox(0, "Choice", "PLease enter the text") EndIf EndSwitch WEnd

      I have an issue with disk space on a server so I wrote a simple little script to check specific directories and save the sizes to an Excel spreadsheet.  For this script, I am still using version 3.3.8.1.  Everything works fine, I just have a question.
      #cs ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- AutoIt Version: 3.3.8.1 #ce ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- #include<date.au3> #include<excel.au3> #include<array.au3> $file = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\CMScriptDirList.txt", 0) If @error Then Exit ;--folder view still OK $oexcel = _ExcelBookOpen(@ScriptDir & "\CMScriptDirSizesCopy.xlsx") If @error Then Exit ;--folder view now parent folder $excelArray = _ExcelReadSheetToArray($oexcel) $lastrow = $excelArray[0][0] $lastcol = $excelArray[0][1] _ExcelWriteCell($oexcel, _NowCalc(), 1, $lastcol + 1) While 1 $line = FileReadLine($file) If @error Then ExitLoop $size = DirGetSize(StringStripWS($line, 3)) / 1024 / 1024 $iIndex = _ArraySearch($excelArray, $line, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1) If @error Then ContinueLoop _ExcelWriteCell($oexcel, $size, $iIndex, $lastcol + 1) WEnd FileClose($file) _ExcelWriteFormula($oexcel, "=SUM(R2C" & $lastcol + 1 & ":R38C" & $lastcol + 1 & ")", 39, $lastcol + 1) _ExcelWriteFormula($oexcel, "=R39C" & $lastcol + 1 & "/1024", 40, $lastcol + 1) $oexcel.ActiveSheet.columns($lastcol).copy ;used to copy the format of the original last column of the spreadsheet $oexcel.ActiveSheet.columns($lastcol + 1).PasteSpecial(-4122, Default, Default, Default) ;this just pastes the format of the original last column to the new last column $oexcel.ActiveSheet.Range("A1").Select ;select cell A1 just to unselect the entire column from previous command $oexcel.columns.AutoFit ;auto sizes the column width _ExcelBookClose($oexcel, 1) ;save file when closing The script is compiled and sitting is a sub-directory on the server in question. The text file and the spreadsheet that are used are both in this same folder as well.  When I navigate to the folder and run the script by double-clicking on the executable, the process runs but the folder view where I ran the script will go back up one level so when the script completes, I am in the parent folder from where I started.  I have added message boxes throughout the script and have determined that the folder view goes back up one level at some point after the @error check for the file open and before the @error check for the ExcelBookOpen (where the comments are).
      I just wanted to know if someone can tell me why and if there is a way to prevent it. (Note: still using v3.3.8.1 on this machine but slowly converting scripts to v3.3.14.2).

      I am a newbie in AutoIt. May I know what is the code used to expand the width and height of excel cells because I want to insert pictures in the cell.I tried AutoFit but that doesnt work as I cant specify for the width and height. Only for column width I could expand by using .ColumnWidth but for the row I am not able to expand the row? How to do?? What is the code used ??Please help me and thank you.
