Can we use _FileCreate to create .xlsx file

2 posts in this topic

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

      I'm trying to insert the following formula in cell A2 using my script:
      =if(A1=""; "YES"; "NO")
      To my understanding, the line of code should be similar to this:
      _Excel_RangeWrite($MasterFile, Default, "=if(A1=""; "YES"; "NO")", "A2")
      However, it does not work, probably due to the multiple quotation marks that confuse the script :C
      How do I avoid this problem?

      Hi everybody,
      i have a question about Excel, i have to create several charts one below the other dynamically.
      I have thought to use:
       
      $oRangeLast = .UsedRange.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeLastCell) $iRowCount = .Range(.Cells(1, 1), .Cells($oRangeLast.Row, $oRangeLast.Column)).Rows.Count  
      And then to use it in this way:
      $Graph_position = "=Test1!A"&$iRowCount+2&":K"&$iRowCount+24 But it doesn't work with charts.
      Does anyone have a suggestion?

      Hi all,
      i have an empty csv file, i have a non formatted text file.
      What do i want to do?
      I want to automate the process "get external data" in Excel, i want to import the data from the text file and basically create a csv file with a specific character encoding.
      Is it possible with AutoIT?
