New functions for the Office UDFs with Office 2016

Recommended Posts

My computer has been upgraded from Office 2010 to Office 2016.
Are there any features of Office 2013 or Office 2016 which you now want to see in the Excel, Word or Outlook UDF?

The only thing I have personally noted is the new chart types in Excel. Don't know how much they are used though. Most of the other "improvements" are somewhat intangible from what I have seen.

Great idea! Maybe I should brush up the ExcelChart UDF as well :)

I'm not sure if this is already included but here's my thought:
For Excel, the functions for VLOOKUP, SUM, IF, etc. 
3D Maps / Maps

Do you have Office 365 or Office 2016?


Kind Regards

I'm running Office 2016.

You can already use the described functions by writing them into a a cell using _Excel_RangeWrite.

For charts etc. there is an ExcelChart UDF available and can be downloaded from the Example Scripts forum.

      @water Tips please ? 
       
      I whould like to check a mail box. Check each mails that is coming and also 'Do' if a particular tag is in the mail subject. 
       
      Well i know I am gonna use 'RegExp' with '_OL_MailheaderGet' from the outlook UDF
       
      And i already tryed them. But when i tryed '_OL_MailheaderGet' If i use the patterne [0] I will get the first mail received. 
       
      Any way to get the last mail received header ? without doing an UBound (may i ll have somthing like 500 mails to unbound...) ? 
      Or i am using the function wrong ?

      Hi guys,
      See attached for an array example.
      to simplify what i want to achieve,  I want to split this array into 9 different csv files.
      the first file would contain the list of "key" and the corresponding "ID1", the second would have "key" and the "ID2", the third would have "key" and "ID3"
      However, I want to remove all the rows that don't have an ID recorded in the respective ID2, ID3 4...5...6 etc, so the file only contains row items with a key and the ID.
      Would be the best way to loop through the rows and delete the row if the array field is blank - would I then need to repeat that row ID to check that the row that its replaced is also empty (ie the one after the one I just deleted)? I see this getting messy.
      or _arraySort, and delete everything below the last filled row? <-- this might be best?
      Or should I use the excel UDF, apply a filter (not selecting the blanks), then create/export to the array->csv?
       
      Super keen to hear your thoughts.
      thanks!

      Hi all, 

      First, I want to give a huge shout-out to the community. I'm completely self-taught, and have never had to actually ask a question before because the forum is that good at answering questions and explaining things. However, I'm kind of stumped here, and I've been stuck on this problem for almost a full day.

      I'm working on a script to populate drafts of deeds at work. I have the main GUI and  a function (ctrl($n) and read()) for adding fields to find and data to replace it with to an array for later use with _word_docfindreplace. All of that works. However, due to the way I have the forms set up, I need to create additional fields and info based on the data that's there. Specifically, if there's only one buyer, I need to add the field [Buyer1&2] and the data in $aArray_Base for [Buyer 1]. I also need to add a field [Buyer 2] and have a blank data set in the next column over in the array, and I need to do the same for the Seller. To this end, the function parties() sets boolean variables $2buyers and $2sellers accordingly. Then, I have buyers() and sellers() to populate the data. 

      The problem that I'm running into is that each function works... when ONLY the buyer 1 name field is filled, and when ONLY the seller 1 field is filled.

      So if I fill Buyer 1 Name and save it, the data is populated correctly. But when I fill Buyer 1 and Seller 1 name, only the buyer 1 data populates correctly. Worse, when I fill several fields, neither populate correctly. I have no idea why this happens. I've added messageboxes to debug throughout the entire process and can't pinpoint what's causing the issue. The entire script is below. The function(s) in question are buyers() and sellers(). Only Sellers() has messageboxes throughout.

      Can someone help walk me through what might be causing this and help me find a solution? Thanks a ton in advance, and sorry for the wall of text.

      As near as I can ascertain using the Word UDF the paragraph count does not count the numbered paragraphs in a document but counts something like all paragraphs (numbered , un-numbered, indented) minus empty lines.  Is there any easy way of getting the first level numbered paragraph numbers?  You'll see in my test document there are just 7 numbered paragraphs.
      #include <Word.au3> #include <Array.au3> Local $oWord = _Word_Create() Local $sDocument = @MyDocumentsDir & "\test.docx" Local $oDoc = _Word_DocOpen($oWord, $sDocument, Default, Default, True) $oRange = $oDoc.Range $sText = $oRange.Text $aLines = StringSplit($sText, @CR) _ArrayDisplay($aLines) $wdPropertyParas = 24 $sParas = $oDoc.BuiltInDocumentProperties($wdPropertyParas).Value $sParas = $sParas ConsoleWrite($sParas & @CRLF)
