[Solved] AD update from csv file


Recommended Posts

 

Hi guys, 

I'd like to write a piece of tool that would allow me to update a certain field in our Active Directory from a comma separated csv file composed like this:

2017-02-24_15-59-49.png

This file, automatically generated, can hold more than 10k lines.
Thus, I need column A to be in one variable, column B in a second one and column C in a third one.

I'm really missing this part as updating the AD is fairly easy once the 3 variable are populated. 

I see things like this:

Quote

Read line 1
Do AD update
Read line 2
Do AD update
...
End Of File

Here's my attempts at the moment:

#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

Global $csv_file = @DesktopDir & "\Book1.csv"
Global $aRecords

If Not _FileReadToArray($csv_file,$aRecords) Then
   MsgBox(4096,"Error", " Error reading log to Array error:" & @error)
   Exit
EndIf
For $x = 1 to $aRecords[0]
    Msgbox(0,'Record:' & $x, $aRecords[$x]) ; Shows the line that was read from file
    $csv_line_values = StringSplit($aRecords[$x], ",",1) ; Splits the line into 2 or more variables and puts them in an array
    ; _ArrayDisplay($csv_line_values) ; Shows what's in the array you just created.
    ; $csv_line_values[0] holds the number of elements in array
    ; $csv_line_values[1] holds the value
    ; $csv_line_values[2] holds the value
    ; etc
    Msgbox(0, 0, $csv_line_values[1])
Next

Any help on this please? 

Thanks in advance

Would like to add you can also use Excel UDF to create your array

#include <Array.au3> ;~ Only required for _ArrayDisplay()
#include <Excel.au3>

;~ Excel File (.xlxx, .csv) file path
$sExcelFile = @DesktopDir & "\Book1.csv"
;~ Open Excel Object
$oExcel = _Excel_Open (False)
;~ Open the Workbook
$oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sExcelFile, True, False)
;~ Read the Workbook to an array
$aArray = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook)

;~ Display the Array
_ArrayDisplay($aArray)

;~ Close the WorkBook
_Excel_BookClose($oWorkbook)
;~ Close the Excel Object
_Excel_Close($oExcel)

      I have a spreadsheet - daily routine which has two columns: activity and time as shown here
      | Activity             | Time     | |----------------------|----------| | Sleep               |  6:00 am | | Toilet              |  6:15 am | | Get ready for gym  |  6:30 am | | Exercise            |  7:50 am | | ... more things      |  9:00 pm | | ... still more       | 10:45 pm | | Sleep               |  6:00 am |   I wanted to find out, say in C1 which activity is current for me using now() I.e., if it’s 6:45am on my watch, it should show me Exercise  in C1 Thanks to Adam D. PE, this formula works like magic to get the result =VLOOKUP(MOD(NOW(),1),{B2:B,A2:A},2,1)   Now, I want to reproduce same result in autoit, how to do that? To have easy solution say, I copy-paste spreadsheet data in array directly in code, right? Use for loop and run the above vlookup function and show the answer using tooltip. How to achieve this? please help.

      I have an Autoit script that lists files from a folder into an array list. Is there a way to separate the filenames by an underscore and include the id, version, name and date into separate columns in Excel.
      Example of filename:
      12345_v1.0_TEST Name [12345]_01.01.2022.html
      12345 would be in one column
      v1.0 would be in another column
      TEST Name [12345] would be in another column
      01.01.2022 would be in another column
      .html would be in another column
      Note: filenames always change each day.
      Here is my code that lists the files into column C and then writes the column Headers into Column D, E, F, G. Just need some help with separating them into columns by the _ delimiter

      Usually when I collect data from DataBase I need to give EndUser a possibility to select rows which should be taken in the processing loop.
      I was searching on the forum and I'm not able to find any UDF or even example of how to select data from array.
      I have my own solutions but I think they are not worth posting on the forum as it is very old code and I am looking for a better solution.

      Could anybody point me to some examples/solutions ?

      Thank you in advance.

      I have a string containing the full path of an executable and an array of executables without their paths. I am trying to compare the string to the list in the array and if a match is found, remove it from the array. The entry get removed from the array successfully, and after checking its return result, uses it to update the ubound if it succeeded, but it doesn't want to update to the new value. Any ideas what I am doing wrong? It acts like it is read-only.
      #include <Array.au3> #include <File.au3> Local $sApp_Exe = "F:\App\Nextcloud\nextcloud.exe" Local $aWaitForEXEX = [3, "Nextcloud.exe", "nextcloudcmd.exe", "QtWebEngineProcess.exe"] For $h = 1 To $aWaitForEXEX[0] If StringInStr($sApp_Exe, $aWaitForEXEX[$h]) <> 0 Then $iRet = _ArrayDelete($aWaitForEXEX, $h) If $iRet <> -1 Then $aWaitForEXEX[0] = $iRet ;this line doesn't work. $aWaitForEXEX[0] doesn't update and shortly gives Error: Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded.: _ArrayDisplay($aWaitForEXEX) EndIf Next

      #Include <Array.au3> #include <Constants.au3> $s = FileRead("2.txt") Local $w = StringRegExp($s, '(?is)(\b\w+\b)(?!.*\b\1\b)', 3) _ArrayColInsert($w, 1) For $i = 0 to UBound($w)-1 StringRegExpReplace($s, '(?i)\b' & $w[$i][0] & '\b', $w[$i][0]) $w[$i][1] = @extended Next _ArraySort($w, 1, 0, 0, 1) _ArrayDisplay($w) i have this script that returns 3 columns  
       
      i need to copy the  Col 0 and Col 1 as text to paste on notepad or excel
      you will have to create a "copy" button if possible
      array.au3 2.txt
