Solution found:

$aArray=_Excel_RangeFind($oWorkbook,"?",$oRange)

But column A is written at the end, the last array item, why?

Use _Excel_RangeRead instead.

after i have used _ExcelRangeRead, i try to show the array, but the _ArrayDisplay is totally skipped

_ArrayDisplay($aArray,"test")

The program exits without any error, but the array is not displayed.

Can you please post the script you run?
What is the value of @error and @extended after calling_Excel_RangeRead?

Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open()

With $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet ; process active sheet
    $oRangeLast = .UsedRange.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeLastCell) ; get a Range that contains the last used cells
    $iRowCount = .Range(.Cells(1, 1), .Cells($oRangeLast.Row, $oRangeLast.Column)).Rows.Count ; get the the row count for the range starting in row/column 1 and ending at the last used row/column
    $ColumnH=_Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook,Default, "H3")
    MsgBox($MB_OK, "Column H", $ColumnH)
EndWith

Global $sWorkbook_2 = @ScriptDir & "\XYZ.xlsx"
Global $oWorkbook_2 = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sWorkbook_2)
$aSearch=_Excel_RangeFind($oWorkbook_2, $ColumnH, "B2:B10")
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 1", "Error searching the range." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)


$Tax_Key=$aSearch[0][2]

$Row_Search=StringMid($Tax_Key, 4, 1)
$Row_Search="A"&$Row_Search

MsgBox($MB_OK, "test", $Row_Search)

With $oWorkbook_2.ActiveSheet ; process active sheet
     $oRange = $oWorkBook_2.Activesheet.Range(""&$Row_Search&"").EntireRow
     $aSearch_IP_Profile=_Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook_2,"?",$oRange)
     MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL,"title", "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
EndWith

 

Above it is my test code, it is nothing professional, i am just learning how to use Excel library :-)

 

The error code is 2, which means the result is empty, so i guess that the "?" is the problem, then the question is:

 

how can i copy an entire row into an array?

 

If i use just

$aSearch_IP_Profile=_Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook_2)

then i will retrieve the whole workbook, as expected.

Example: Read column C and store it in an Array.

#include <Excel.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

; Create application object
Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
If @error Then Exit MsgBox(16, "Excel UDF: _Excel_BookOpen Example", "Error creating the Excel application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)

; *****************************************************************************
; Open an existing workbook and return its object identifier.
; *****************************************************************************
Global $sWorkbook = @ScriptDir & "\Test.xlsx"
Global $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sWorkbook)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_BookOpen Example 1", "Error opening '" & $sWorkbook & "'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)

; Read column C
Global $oRange = $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.UsedRange.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeLastCell)
Global $aResult = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, Default, "C1:C" & $oRange.Row)
_ArrayDisplay($aResult)

      Sorry if this is a repost, but having some trouble searching for the answer and pretty tired right now.
      I'm just wondering how to make a border around a range of cells in Excel. I want the regular lines created by selecting "All Borders" option around F2:G3
      I saw this code:
      With $oExcel.ActiveSheet.range("F2:G3") .Select .Borders($xlEdgeBottom).LineStyle = $xlContinuous .Borders($xlEdgeBottom).Weight = $xlThick .Borders($xlEdgeBottom).ColorIndex = $xlAutomatic EndWith but I get errors of these variables not existing. It seems these no longer exist in the "#include <Excel.au3>"
      Is there another include file I need?
      I got this to work for highlighting cells, wondering if there is a option similar to this for all borders?
      $oExcel.ActiveSheet.Range("F2:G3").Interior.ColorIndex = 6 Thanks

      I am working on a script that will turn all file names in a directory into an array, and then writes this Array to an Excel file.
      This in itself is working, but the RangeWrite function always puts the Array count in the first cell.
      How can i make sure this does not happen? I can of course just filter it out in Excel, but i am trying to keep all logic of filtering text in my script.
      This is what my script looks like:
      Local $Yesterday = _DateAdd('d', -1, _NowCalcDate())
      Local $cDate = StringReplace($Yesterday, "/", "-")
      Local $aFileList = _FileListToArray(@WorkingDir & "/" & $cDate, "*")
      Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
      Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookNew($oExcel)
      _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $aFileList)

      Hello,
      Is there a way wherein I can access the data from an array coming from an Excel file then have it assigned on to a variable?
      Below is a snippet of my current code. For now, it just reads and outputs the data from the excel file and have it displayed via an array.
      #include <Array.au3> #include <Excel.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open(False) If @error Then Exit MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error creating application object." & @CRLF & "Error: " & @error & " Extends: " & @extended) ; Open Excel Woorkbook and return object Local $sWorkbook = @ScriptDir & "\Excel Files\Test Data.xlsx" Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sWorkbook, False, True) If @error Then MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error opening workbook'" & $sWorkbook & ".'" & @CRLF & "Error: " & @error & "Extends: " & @extended) _Excel_Close($oExcel) Exit EndIf Local $aResult = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook) ; Error Trapping If @error Then MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error reading data from '" & $sWorkbook & ".'" & @CRLF & "Error: " & @error & " Extends: " & @extended) _Excel_Close($oExcel) Exit EndIf _ArrayDisplay($aResult) My Excel file has values from Column A to H with values from 1 to 30, what I desired to do is have the value in "A7" assigned on to a variable. 
       
      Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      I am trying to close an excel file that was not opened with _Excel_Open.  How do I found the excel application object?  I'm new and I am used to files and folders names, so an 'object' is new to me.  I have the info too and simply spy, but I don't know which info is the object name/string.  In the example from help doc's I see the code below and I tried justin pasting it into Scite.
      <
      Local $oExcel1 = ObjCreate("Excel.Application")
      ; Close the Excel instance which was not opened by _Excel_Open
      ; (will still be running because it was not opened by _Excel_Open)
      _Excel_Close($oExcel1)
      If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_Close Example 1", "Error closing the Excel application." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
      Sleep(2000)
      Local $aProcesses = ProcessList("Excel.exe")
      MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_Close Example 1", "Function ended successfully." & @CRLF & @CRLF & $aProcesses[0][0] & " Excel instance(s) still running.")

      Hello,
      I used the various "_Excel_*()" funktions to open workbooks, read and write cells.
       
      I was looking through the helpfile for the _EXCEL_* funktions, if there is a direkt way to set background color or text color -- if there is one, then I missed it?
       
      Searching the forum I found this posting demonstrating how to do this task using ...
      ObjCreate("Excel.Application")  
      Is there a way to set the background color etc. with the native "_EXCEL_*" as well?
       
      Regards, Rudi.
