[SOLVED] _Excel_RangeRead & Excel Formats Question

Recommended Posts

SkysLastChance

I am not sure what is happing at all, unfortunatlly there is no way I can put a full running code. When I enter the first and last name it works fine, However when I get to the date of birth it puts in '19760703000000' 

 

I can't figure out why "7/3/1976" is the value before the formant and "07031976" is after the format. 

 

I want it to pull the value after the format. "07031976"

 

 

$r = 1

Local $aArray = _Excel_RangeRead($oExcel, Default, Default,Default,False)

For $i = 1 To UBound($aArray) - 1   ;$i =0 Start from row A
      $sR1 = $aArray[$i][0]     ;status
      $sR2 = $aArray[$i][1]     ;first name
      $sR3 = $aArray[$i][2]     ;Last name
      $sR4 = $aArray[$i][4]     ;DOB
      $sR5 = $aArray[$i][5]     ;Email Address




WinWaitActive ("[CLASS:Notepad]")
ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1", $sR3 & ',' & $sR2 & @CR)
Sleep (2000)
ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1",("{TAB}"))
Sleep (3000)
ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1", $sR4 & @CR)
ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1",("{ENTER}"))
ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1",("{F12}")




$r = $r + 1
If $r > $sBox Then
   Exit
   Endif

Next

auto it demo.xlsx - excel that I am using.

Edit: I also want to mention I have tried

Local $aArray = _Excel_RangeRead($oExcel, Default, Default,3)

When I do this not even the name first and last name will write.

The value 3 reads the displayed/formatted value. Unfortunately MS only supports to read a single cell with this parameter. 

All other values return the internal representation of the date. 

Please check the wiki for a detailed description of how Excel stores dates.

Hmmm okay. Is this really my best option?

 

1. Copy the original Data
2. Paste to Notepad (Prefer Notepad++)
3. Change the Cell Properties to TEXT
4. Copy All from Notepad
5. Paste back to Excel.

No. If you check the wiki you will find a script that translates the internal dates you get from _Excel_RangeRead into the date format you require.

You have did it once again. HAHA I cant figure ot how to do MM/DD/YYYY though. 

#include <Excel.au3>
#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <Date.au3>

Func _ConvertSerialDateTime($nDT) ; this function is here to convert excel date valuse to numbers
    Local Const $dtExcel = '1899/12/31'
    Local $iDate = Int($nDT) - 1 ; Adjusted after reading wiki and why result is 1 day to much: http://www.cpearson.com/excel/datetime.htm
    Local $iTime = Mod($nDT, 1)
    $iTime = Int(24 * 3600 * $iTime)
    $dtRes = _DateAdd('D', $iDate, $dtEXcel)
    $dtRes = _DateAdd('s', $iTime, $dtRes)
    Return $dtRes
EndFunc



$r = 1

Local $aArray = _Excel_RangeRead($oExcel, Default, Default,4)

For $i = 1 To UBound($aArray) - 1   ;$i =0 Start from row A
      $sR1 = $aArray[$i][0]     ;status
      $sR2 = $aArray[$i][1]     ;first name
      $sR3 = $aArray[$i][2]     ;Last name
      $sR4 = $aArray[$i][4]     ;DOB
      $sR5 = $aArray[$i][5]     ;Email Address




WinWaitActive ("[CLASS:MGUIWin]")
ControlSend("[CLASS:MGUIWin]", "", "Edit2", $sR3 & ',' & $sR2 & @CR)
Sleep (2000)
ControlSend("[CLASS:MGUIWin]", "", "",("{TAB}"))
Sleep (3000)
ControlSend("[CLASS:MGUIWin]", "", "", (_ConvertSerialDateTime($sR4) & @CR))





$r = $r + 1
If $r > $sBox Then
   Exit
   Endif

Next

Your case is even simpler. When you use Parameter = 1 then you get "19760703000000". This is YYYYMMDDHHMMSS.
So either use Stringformat, String* functions or a RegExp to format the string to your liking.

how far off am I here.

_ConvertSerialDateTime is not needed with the format you get (I mentioned the format in post #6).

I can't test at the moment but you need to grab the left 4 characters for year, then 2 for month and again 2 for day and then re-arrange this 3 fields in the sequence you need.

How does that grab you?

      I have more than 12 workbooks opened together, if i wanted to attach to the last workbook opened it will take more than 1 minute !
      Is there any solution for that ?

      Hello AutoIt community
      I run into speed problem in my script wich i cant solve myself, problem is with decoding texture loop - for better explanation, you need extract from file pallete (16x 16 RGB color) and picture data (224 * 128 byte), then use correct color for your picture data.... nothing extra hard and also texture is quite small 224*256
      it is for my car model viewer/later maybe editor GranTurismo 2 from Playstation 1, so its old dataformat and i cant understand why AutoIt take so long to decode texture when good old Playstation almost 2,5 decades old can do that nearly immediately (when you list through cars in shop or garage)
      My first atempt was create all trought dllstructure, because its easier approach, but it was soooo slow (40-50s for create textures) then i upgrade my routine via arrays, first 3D arrays later only 1D, next i put decoding colors outside loop but it is still not enough, my last version took cca 15s wich is still unacceptable for car model viewer when you click on one carmodel from listview (1100 cars for whole game) and you must wait 15-16s for model to load....  oh and i forgot mention some cars have more then 1 color (much more... 8-9-10 etc) soloading take 8-9-10 times more time
      in attachment i post texture file from GranTurismo 2 for one car (contain only 1 color) and also my dll struct version and array version code
      dll struct version - ± 40 sec (33 without saving)

      Hello,
      Does somebody knows a quick way to split eash word to an array in a text?
      I've a text and want to have each word in that text in an array.

      I tried to get in some way multiple seperators inside stringsplit but couldn't get it to work.
      I hope to get an array like :
      $aArray[0] = "PARIJS"
      $aArray[1] = "AFN"
      $aArray[2] = "Air"
      ....
      sample text: PARIJS (AFN) - Air France-KLM heeft de financieel directeur van het Franse nuts- en vervoersbedrijf Veolia, Philipe Capron, in het vizier om de nieuwe topman van de luchtvaartcombinatie te worden. Volgens de krant La Tribune wordt Capron als favoriet beschouwd om de topfunctie te gaan vervullen. AdChoices Advertentie Volgens bronnen tegen La Tribune is de keuze voor Capron zelfs al gemaakt door Air France-KLM en zal zijn voordracht volgende week worden voorgelegd aan de raad van toezicht bij het bedrijf. Capron zou dan de opvolger worden van de opgestapte topman Jean-Marc Janaillac. In mei trad Janaillac af nadat het hem niet was gelukt buiten de bonden om zaken te doen met het eigen personeel. Sindsdien heeft een interim-bestuur de dagelijkse leiding. De zestigjarige Capron is sinds 2014 financieel directeur bij Veolia. Daarvoor werkte hij onder meer bij mediaconcern Vivendi. Minder macht Overigens zijn er ook geruchten dat de nieuwe topman van Air France-KLM direct een zetel zou krijgen in de raad van commissarissen van KLM. Binnen de Nederlandse divisie, die juist alles op alles zet om minder macht naar Parijs te laten vloeien, is men volgens ingewijden verbolgen over die gang van zaken. ,,Stank voor dank", zo klinkt het in de wandelgangen. Eerder zou Janaillac ook al hebben geprobeerd om een dikkere vinger in de pap te krijgen bij KLM, dat door de bank genomen beter presteert dan haar Franse zustermaatschappij. Dit lukte eerder niet, onder meer door inmenging van het Nederlandse kabinet. AdChoices Advertentie Geruchten Een woordvoerder van Air France-KLM wilde niet reageren op de geruchtenstroom. Het concern gaat er vanuit dat binnen afzienbare tijd een nieuwe bestuursvoorzitter benoemd zal worden. Minister Cora van Nieuwenhuizen (Infrastructuur) wilde evenmin ingaan op geruchten. ,,Ik heb hierover nog geen contact gehad met KLM, dus dat wil ik eerst even afwachten'', zei ze. Tweede Kamerleden spraken deze week tijdens een debat nog maar eens hun zorg uit over de ontwikkelingen bij Air France-KLM. Zij drongen aan op herbevestiging van oude afspraken over de relatief zelfstandige positie van KLM binnen de groep.>Exit code: 0 Time: 28.52
