Too many "lines" for Excel? Transpose error on a spreadsheet

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted

Hello everyone :),

I have spotted a weird problem with the Excel COM API. It doesn't read a spreadsheet with a good amount of lines in a cell... Enough talk, let's get into code:

#include <Array.au3>
#include <Excel.au3>

Global $oExcel = _Excel_Open(False, False, False, False, True)
Global Const $sSpreadsheet = @ScriptDir & '\Test.xlsx'
Global $oSpreadsheet = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sSpreadsheet, True, False)
Global $aSpreadsheet = _Excel_RangeRead($oSpreadsheet)
If @error Then MsgBox(0, "Error", 'Error Code: ' & @error & @CRLF & 'Extended Code: ' & @extended)
_Excel_Close($oExcel, False)

_ArrayDisplay($aSpreadsheet)

(Download Test.xlsx)

I get this error when I run the script:

If you open the spreadsheet, you can see that I have dummy text in the B2 cell. If you replace the contents of the cell B2 with something like Test4, it will work perfectly fine:

Is this some kind of undocumented line limit for Excel? :ermm:

Thanks in Advance! TD :thumbsup:

this, from the rangeread helpfile?

$bForceFunc [optional] True forces to use the _ArrayTranspose function instead of the Excel transpose method (default = False).
    See the Remarks section for details.

Wow, I didn't notice it at all! :blink:.

Thank you very much! :D

P.S I am still interested in why Excel wasn't able to transpose it by itself

Maybe you hit this limitation?

The Excel transpose method doesn't support cells with more than 255 characters.

      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?
