Copy from excel row (one by one) and paste into another application

16 posts in this topic

This is my first time here so please dont bombard me that what a silly question I am asking!!

I have 500 rows (A1:A500) in a spreadsheet and I just want to copy one by one row and then paste into another application and then press enter, loop should repeat this until finishes all 500 rows.

I have looked at clipget(), clip(put() but dont know how to select next row in next turn. I also looked at Array to store but again no luck. Can some guide me please..

Welcome to AutoIt and the forum!

To process Excel workbooks I suggest you have a look at the Excel UDF that comes with AutoIt. Function _Excel_RangeRead should do what you want.
How to paste the read Excel cells to your application depends on the type of application (browser, GUI ...).

If you can provide more information we might be able to provide a solution ;)

Hi Water, many thank for your quick reply.

I have see those UDF and looked at the examples as well which is copying the data from one cell, so how can I copy on cell go to (for example teamviewer)  paste the value into the partnerid field and press enter and then again go to excel and repeat the process.

 

Regards,

Vik

I would use _Excel_RangeRead to read the whole worksheet into an array in a single go. Reading cell by cell takes much more time.
Then loop through the array and send each "cell" to your application using ControlSend and ControlClick.

I have found example where I can store the values in the Arrays but could not find a way to paste it into the application however, I have written something like this, which works fine and paste to the Notepad one by one but now I have another issue, I could not find a way to select the input field in my application, here for example lets think about teamviewer and if I want to select the password field then what will be the bast way, I tried the windows info tool but could not figure out what command should I use and what unique identifier should I choose and how to use it. It will be great if can please help me in this:

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

Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeRead Example", "Error creating the Excel application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, @ScriptDir & "\TESting.xlsx")
If @error Then
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeRead Example", "Error opening workbook '" & @ScriptDir & "\TESting.xlsx'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
    _Excel_Close($oExcel)
    Exit
EndIf
Local $sResult = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, Default, "A1")

Do
    Local $sData = ClipGet()
    ClipPut($sResult)
    $sData = ClipGet().
    WinActivate("Untitled - Notepad")
    Send("^v")
    Send ("{ENTER}")
    $sResult = $sResult + 1

Until $sResult = 123465

Use the ID desplayed on the Control tab of the Window Info tool and call function ControlSend with this information.

Thanks, the application I wanted to copy to is internet based so can you please point me to the right direction if I have to automate IE or firefox, I do I have to download before I start working with any of the browser. I tried this (t start with):

#include <ff.au3>

_FFStart("www.google.co.uk")

but got the error

Line 12  (File "C:\Users\va012278\Desktop\ff.au3"):

#include <ff.au3>

Error: #include depth exceeded.  Make sure there are no recursive includes.

Seems there is a recursive include in your script. The file ff.au3 which you include in your script itself includes ff.au3 and this results in an endless loop.

Hi

I am bit struggling when my webapp opens a popup to add a new record. It is fine if I put the sleep to let window open that popup after I click on 'Add' but is there any way I can dynamically check if that popup has opened because popup may take longer or shorter to load. I tried to get the reference (through window info utility) but no luck, it shown something as

<div class="ui-dialog-titlebar ui-widget-header ui-corner-all ui-helper-clearfix">
<span id="ui-id-9" class="ui-dialog-title">Add Street</span>

I could not find any online help as well for this, can you please give me a hand...

Unfortunately I have never used the Firefox UDF so I can't help you with this problem.
Hopefully some experienced Firefox coder chimes in :)

Ah .. but in post #7 you were talking about FF.

My first try would be to access the element by using _IEGetObjById.

I have managed to do with _IE but now I have another obstacle, I want to loop through all the directories within a directory but want to see folder starting with "my" I have something like this

Local $aFileList = _FileListToArray("\\server\c$\inet\root", "*")

For $i = 0 to 10
    If StringInStr($i,"my") Then

    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $aFileList[$i])

    EndIf

Next

please help to only retrieve folder starting with 'my'

      Hello I got these tabs

      Is there possibility to change tab without click on the tab but change by click on button for example?

      Hi,
      i have a code which generates two numeric outputs.i have to save them in excel.
      Is there any way to export them to specific cells in excel???

      Howdy All
      I've gone around and around in circles wasting hours trying to fix this problem to no avail so I thought I would try posting for help given there are some real smart people in this forum.
      Background
      I have 5 separate .au3 scripts that all do different basic tasks. For example:
      1.au3 = opens Chrome browser to obtain information from a specific website then closes
      2.au3 = opens an Excel workbook to run a macro then saves and closes
      3.au3 = Open two seperate workbooks and transfers data from one to the other then saves and closes
      4.au3 = .......etc
      5.au3 = .......etc
      These 5 separate scripts, doing completely different tasks, need to each run once per day at 5 different designated times within a day and then close. For example:
      1.au3 = 10am
      2.au3 = 12pm
      3.au3 = 2pm
      4.au3 = 4pm
      5.au3 = 5pm
      Problem
      I can not get these different scripts to reliably run at their designated times. When I manually run these scripts individually by using 'Go F5' they work perfectly. If I convert these scripts to an .exe and manually run each one they work about 98% of time.
      How can I schedule these different .au3 files or associated .exe files to reliably run each day at different times?
      Attempts To Fix The Issue
      1. I have tried converting each .au3 script into their own .exe file and use Window's Task Scheduler to run these .exe files at their designated time but the success rate  of running each .exe in full, to completion, without error is very low at about 30%. Things that commonly go wrong include a browser not opening but movement still continues on the desk top. Other times things just do not happen at all.
      2. I have Windows 7 64 bit and have tried creating and running both (x86) and (x64) .exe files but again reliability problems exist;
      3. I have also tried moving each .exe file to the My Documents folder as I read someone that keeping your files on your desktop ties your files to individual Windows user profiles which can cause AutoIt operating errors. Not sure if this is correct but thought I would try it anyway. It did not fix my issue.
      4. I installed a program called AlwaysUp which supposedly always reliably runs in the background and will reliably execute your AutoIt script or .exe files. Still have significant reliability issues.
      Therefore, can someone please provide advice on how I can get my 5 different .au3 files to run at 5 designated times through the day, every day, without fail? Overtime I will be creating more and more different .au3 files to run certain tasks throughout the day and do not want to create one large AutoIt file that continually runs and attempts to do all the different tasks itself.
      Any help is very appreciated.
      Thanks
      Dan

      Hi all,
      I built an AutoIt application that interacts with several other applications/software. Now, it's turn to interfact with Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS).
      Does anyone has a blog, demo, script to share?
      Thanks!

      0down votefavorite   In my current project, Excel macro open AutoIt script using a function Call Shell("location of autoit script").
      For proper functioning of AutoIt script it's need to be close parent Excel workbook, so this closing Excel action is written in AutoIt script itself.
      But as soon as AutoIt script close parent Excel workbook then script get pause and it do nothing.
      How open the AutoIt script from Excel workbook and after that parent Workbook get close?
