_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
   $a=@extended
   MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel ...", "Error inserting" & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
Else
   MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel ...", "Rows successfully inserted")
EndIf

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 3.3.12.0 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 3.3.8.1

      I'm trying to insert the following formula in cell A2 using my script:
      =if(A1=""; "YES"; "NO")
      To my understanding, the line of code should be similar to this:
      _Excel_RangeWrite($MasterFile, Default, "=if(A1=""; "YES"; "NO")", "A2")
      However, it does not work, probably due to the multiple quotation marks that confuse the script :C
      How do I avoid this problem?

      Hi everybody,
      i have a question about Excel, i have to create several charts one below the other dynamically.
      I have thought to use:
       
      $oRangeLast = .UsedRange.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeLastCell) $iRowCount = .Range(.Cells(1, 1), .Cells($oRangeLast.Row, $oRangeLast.Column)).Rows.Count  
      And then to use it in this way:
      $Graph_position = "=Test1!A"&$iRowCount+2&":K"&$iRowCount+24 But it doesn't work with charts.
      Does anyone have a suggestion?

      I  want to create a excel file from my script if it does not exist.
      _ExcelBookOpen throws error=2 if file does not exist, after this error i want to create new file at this point.
