Pasting from clipboard to excel

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted

Hi,

 

Wondering what I'm doing wrong.

as per my script, I activate an external program, copy data from it and I want to paste it into excel, after I clear the current sheet that is there.

It is some sort of an array as when I manually paste it into excel it expands across rows and down columns (number of which varies).

This repeats for Xno. of program instances, and consequently I would want it to cycle through x sheets.

So far I have the following, noting that I dont have the sheet clearing thing detailed yet, but I get the following error: "Error copying cells. @error = 4, @extended = -2147352567"

 

func Primary()
    For $i=0 to ubound($term)-1
        WinActivate($term[$i])
        sleep(500)
        MouseClick("left",$OptX,$opty)
        Clipput("")
        sleep(500)
        send("!a")
        sleep(100)
        Do
            sleep(100)
            until Clipget()
        ;activates sheet no. specified by $i+ 1, removes data from sheet and pastes new data, cycles to the next sheet
        
        ;function to clear sheet
        _Excel_RangeCopyPaste($oWorkbook1.Worksheets($i+1), Default , "A1")
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeCopy Example 2", "Error copying cells." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeCopy Example 2", "Range 'A1' from workbook _Excel3.xls successfully copied to 'G15'.")
        Next
EndFunc

 

Any help would be great.

-2147352567 (dec) translates to 0x80020009 (hex) which means. General Error.
Which version of AutoIt do you run?

The alternative would be to do things a little more manual:

* activate excel

*active the sheet (how do I do this? either using the excel UDF or manually, avoiding MouseClick)

*send("^a")

*send("{DEL}")

* send ("^{HOME}")

*send("^v")

next ...

 try:

$oExcel.Application.ActiveSheet.Range("A1").Select
$oExcel.Selection.Paste

      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?

      Hi all,
      i have an empty csv file, i have a non formatted text file.
      What do i want to do?
      I want to automate the process "get external data" in Excel, i want to import the data from the text file and basically create a csv file with a specific character encoding.
      Is it possible with AutoIT?

      Hello to you, dear developers!
      Could you please tell me if there is an easy way to determine if the information was pasted from the clipboard?
      Without any variation of the insertion via Ctrl+V, or through the context menu.
      I revised the Help and many forum topics, but found nothing suitable.
      Can there be any WinAPI system events that determine this event?
