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

      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.
