Recommended Posts

I  want to create a excel file from my script if it does not exist.

_ExcelBookOpen throws error=2 if file does not exist, after this error i want to create new file at this point.

can i use _FileCreate()?

_Logger($sLogPath, "{INFO}------: Opening Excel File: " & $sExcelPath& "")

    While 1
        Local $oExcelTestResult = _ExcelBookOpen($sExcelPath)

        If @error = 2 Then

            If not _FileCreate($sResExcelPath) Then
                MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error In Opening REsult Excel File: Error: " & String(@error))
                _Logger($sLogPath, "{ERROR}------: Result Excel File does not exist.. tried to create new but :ERROR : " & String(@error) & "")
                ExitLoop
            Else
                _Logger($sLogPath, "{INFO}------: Result Excel File does not exist.. **Created New**: ")

            EndIf
        Else

            ExitLoop

        EndIf
    WEnd

Seens the version of AutoIt you run is quite old. The Excel UDF has been rewritten.
With the current version I suggest something like:

If FileExists("Your Excel file") Then
    $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen(...)
Else
    $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookNew(...)
EndIf

      Dear members of the forum,
      I need to open excel files that may or may not need a password and finally move the files that needs password to manual queue.
      Is there a fastest way to do this?
       
      PS: I have a huge respect for the rules of this forum. I am not asking assistance to override any security measure. I just need to segregate the files that needs passwords.

      Hi guys,
      without including everything (unless you want it)
      I am copying data from a table in chrome and wanting to paste it into excel.
      Copying in Chrome works.
      I can paste it into the field i want by emulating goto -> ctrl V:
      WinActivate($dataload) WinWaitActive($dataload) Sleep(500) $oWorkbook1.Sheets("ItemReturn").Activate Sleep(500) $msg = "Measuring Sheet" conwrite() ttips2() Local Const $xlUp = -4162 With $oWorkbook1.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, "B")).Rows.Count ; get the the row count for the range starting in row/column 1 and ending at the last used row/column $iLastCell = .Cells($iRowCount + 1, "B").End($xlUp).Row ; start in the row following the last used row and move up to the first used cell in column "B" and grab this row number EndWith $NewStartCell = $iLastCell + 2 $msg = "moving to location" conwrite() ttips2() Sleep(250) Send("^g") WinWait("Go To") Sleep(100) Send("B" & $NewStartCell) Sleep(100) Send("{ENTER}") Sleep(500) Send("^v")  
      But, I want to use _excel_rangecopypaste, pasting from the clipboard
      _Excel_RangeCopyPaste($oWorkbook1.ActiveSheet, default, "B" & $NewStartCell,default,$xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats) If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeCopy Example 2", "Error pasting cells." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) however, this gives me error 4 , extended@:  -2147352567
      How can i fix this or find out how to debug this error?
       
      Thanks

      Hi.
      I try to figure out who is using a excel workbook which I can only open "read only". I use this code:
      #include <Array.au3> #include <Excel.au3> Local $sFile = ; excel file with path on a network drive Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open(True, True) Local $oTabelle = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sFile) Local $aUsers If IsObj($oTabelle) Then $aUsers = $oTabelle.UserStatus _ArrayDisplay($aUsers) EndIf If I am the one allowed to write to the excel file (I'm the first one who opened it) then I will get an array with myself:

      If my collegue opened the excel file first and I run the code I get the following error message:
      "H:\_Conrad lokal\Downloads\AutoIt3\_COX\Tests\test.au3" (9) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.: $aUsers = $oTabelle.UserStatus $aUsers = $oTabelle^ ERROR The excel file is on a network drive. Is that's the problem?
      Regards, Conrad

      https://stackoverflow.com/questions/37145369/change-path-to-picture-links-in-excel http://www.jkp-ads.com/Articles/Excel2007FileFormat.asp EDITED:
      Note: it seems that if User Account Control (UAC) is enabled then 7zip is unable to overwrite the destination file (using the same name).
      In this case, a possible solution would be to rename the original excel file before (see _PathSplit in help file).
      In my case i prefer just to disable UAC
