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?

#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 '" & $sWorkbook & "'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_BookOpen Example 1", "Workbook '" & $sWorkbook & "' has been opened successfully." & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Creation Date: " & $oWorkbook.BuiltinDocumentProperties("Creation Date").Value)


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)

      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.
