_Excel_RangeInsert error ... ?

3 posts in this topic

I'm trying the Excel.udf, my starting point are the examples found in the help.

My problem is that i can't find any working example of _Excel_RangeInsert ... made many tries but i can't find the reason why ...

New/existing Worbook nothing changes ... i tried _Excel_RangeWrite without any problem, but with _Excel_RangeInsert i always get an @error=3 and @extended=-2147352562 ...

What could i be missing ?

Here's the minimalistic snippet i'm playing with :

Local $sWorkbook = @ScriptDir & "\pixel.xls"
Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sWorkbook)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel ...", "Error opening '" & $sWorkbook & "'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)

$dummy=_Excel_RangeInsert($oWorkbook.Activesheet, "1:3")
If @error Then
   MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel ...", "Error inserting" & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
   MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel ...", "Rows successfully inserted")

ConsoleWrite ($dummy & chr(13) & $a & Chr(13))

I tried every possible (...) syntax for the range object, without success ... 

I use the latest releases of AutoIt and Office 97 ...

Thanks for your help ...

Works fine here with AutoIt and Excel 2010.

the value of @extended stands for: 0x8002000E - DISP_E_BADPARAMCOUNT - invalid number of parameters.

As the Excel UDF has been tested with Excel 2003 and later I'm sure Excel 97 does not support a parameter passed by the UDF.
I fear you need to switch to a newer version of Excel or use the old Excel UDF that comes with AutoIt

      AutoIt script turns off, because of array is out of bound
      By SorryButImaNewbie
      Hello all!
      I wrote a little script to automate some of my work (for which I'm greatfull).
      I have little problem now. My script get data of currency values from specified time period. The problem, if XY day is a holiday or something, then the bank doesn't have new values for that day, thus my script can ask for "till that date" if there is only data for "till that date-1".
      I should be done with this for tomorrow and I should learn for my test paper tomorrow, make a genetic algorhytm homework, and at least look at a ppt...
      So here is my code, pleas ask if you need more information!

      My idea/goal (with the If @error then... after @SZAMLATELJolvaso part) is that if this happens, I want it to automaticly jump to the last date of the array (I will be able to write something more elaborate, but for now thats my goal, to save the sinking ship )
      Thank yu for your help and insight!

      Excel write in cell not replace
      By Masum
      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.
