Pasting from clipboard to excel

Recommended Posts

MrCheese

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 use .ActiveWorkBook.SaveAs("C:\Users\Enrico\Desktop\impegnato.xlsx") but...
       
      Thanks in advance for helping.

      How to use _Excel_RangeSort to sort my excel file by three different headers Column A1, B1, and C1 have headers on which I want to sort by. The headers on which I want to sort are department, employee type, and name.
      I still really new to AutoIt so I do not actually know how to properly start this line or lines of code, to be honest. The example code is the best I can do.
      _Excel_RangeSort($OpenWorkbook, Default, "A1:C1", "1:1", $xlDescending, Default, $xlYes, Default, $xlSortRows) I just need to sort by those three headers in that order of department, employee type, and name, plus in descending order.
       
      any and all help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!

      My program has to first search for names in Column D that do not match up with column C. I got that search to work using arrays. It was slow and I could not figure out how to delete them so I just manually put coded the names that do not belong. I found their cell location but I do not know how to store that location and delete it.
      This is what I have so far.
      Local $NameToDelete1[6]  = _Excel_RangeFind($OpenWorkbook, "Smith, Bill") _ArrayDisplay($NameToDelete1, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 1", "", 0, "|", "Sheet|Name|Cell|Value|Formula|Comment") _Excel_RangeDelete($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $NameToDelete1[2], $xlShiftUp)  
      Please help, I wanted to have this program done yesterday but I did not see this problem until yesterday.
