for next with excel range addition

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

Wondering, is there a better way, likely to use 'for...next' to add a letter to each range, by moving right -> along a range of columns in excel.

I currently use this, but its clunky.

If $run = 1 Then $range = "B6:B41"
    If $run = 2 Then $range = "C6:C41"
    If $run = 3 Then $range = "D6:D41"
    If $run = 4 Then $range = "E6:E41"
    If $run = 5 Then $range = "F6:F41"
    If $run = 6 Then $range = "G6:G41"
    If $run = 7 Then $range = "H6:H41"
    If $run = 8 Then $range = "I6:I41"
    If $run = 9 Then $range = "J6:J41"
    If $run = 10 Then $range = "K6:K41"
    If $run = 11 Then $range = "L6:L41"
    If $run = 12 Then $range = "M6:M41"
    If $run = 13 Then $range = "N6:N41"
    If $run = 14 Then $range = "O6:O41"
    If $run = 15 Then $range = "P6:P41"
    If $run = 16 Then $range = "Q6:Q41"
    If $run = 17 Then $range = "R6:R41"
    If $run = 18 Then $range = "S6:S41"
    If $run = 19 Then $range = "T6:T41"
    If $run = 20 Then $range = "U6:U41"
    If $run = 21 Then $range = "V6:V41"
    If $run = 22 Then $range = "W6:W41"
    If $run = 23 Then $range = "X6:X41"
    If $run = 24 Then $range = "Y6:Y41"
    If $run = 25 Then $range = "Z6:Z41"
    If $run = 26 Then $range = "AA6:AA41"
    If $run = 27 Then $range = "AB6:AB41"
    If $run = 28 Then $range = "AC6:AC41"
    If $run = 29 Then $range = "AD6:AD41"
    If $run = 30 Then $range = "AE6:AE41"
    If $run = 31 Then $range = "AF6:AF41"
    If $run = 32 Then $range = "AG6:AG41"
    If $run = 33 Then $range = "AH6:AH41"
    If $run = 34 Then $range = "AI6:AI41"
    If $run = 35 Then $range = "AJ6:AJ41"
    If $run = 36 Then $range = "AK6:AK41"
    If $run = 37 Then $range = "AL6:AL41"
    If $run = 38 Then $range = "AM6:AM41"
    If $run = 39 Then $range = "AN6:AN41"
    If $run = 40 Then $range = "AO6:AO41"
    If $run = 41 Then $range = "AP6:AP41"
    If $run = 42 Then $range = "AQ6:AQ41"
    If $run = 43 Then $range = "AR6:AR41"
    If $run = 44 Then $range = "AS6:AS41"
    If $run = 45 Then $range = "AT6:AT41"
    If $run = 46 Then $range = "AU6:AU41"
    If $run = 47 Then $range = "AV6:AV41"
    If $run = 48 Then $range = "AW6:AW41"
    If $run = 49 Then $range = "AX6:AX41"
    If $run = 50 Then $range = "AY6:AY41"

 

Normally, if it was going down the rows, i'd use this:

 

For $i = 0 To UBound($iRowCount) - 1
    $row = $i + 1
    $range = "B"&$row&":B"&$row+1
Next

 

so something like this, but i don't know how to code sequential columns:

For $i = 0 To UBound($iColCount) - 1
    $col = $i + 1
    $range = $col&"1:"&$col&"40"
Next

 

If I don't make sense, let me know.

Any help would be great. thanks

Look at the _Excel_ColumnToLetter and _Excel_ColumnToNumber functions.

Example:

#include <Excel.au3>

Local $vRange = _ExcelSelectRange(25, 6, 41)

MsgBox(0,'', $vRange)

Func _ExcelSelectRange($iColumn, $iRowStart, $iRowEnd)
    Local $sLetter = _Excel_ColumnToLetter($iColumn)
    Return $sLetter & $iRowStart & ":" & $sLetter & $iRowEnd
EndFunc

      Is there a way to loop back to the beginning and keep the already entered data in the GUI Input boxes? I can GUIDelete and start a new GUI but all the typed data has to be redone. Here is a sample.

       
      #Include <GuiConstants.au3> Dim $msg,$okbutton,$cancelbutton,$objOU,$intAccValue,$strGroup1,$strGroup2 Dim $strFirstName,$strLastName,$strUserName,$strUserName2,$strPassword,$strDescription,$strContainer Dim $Combo,$Duration Do $Form1 = GuiCreate("", 300, 300)          GUISetBkColor(0xA6CAF0)         GuiCtrlCreateLabel("First Name:", 50, 10)         $strFirstName = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 50, 25, 200, 20)         GUICtrlSetState ( $okbutton, $GUI_FOCUS )         GuiSetState()     $okbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton ("OK",75,240,50,20)     $cancelbutton = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Cancel",175,240,50,20) While 1     $msg = GUIGetMsg()     Select     Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Or $msg = $cancelbutton             Exit     Case $msg = $okbutton             $strFirstName = GUICtrlRead($strFirstName)             ExitLoop     EndSelect Wend $len = StringLen($strFirstName)     If $len > "20" then         MsgBox(0, "ERROR Name to long", $strFirstName & " can't be over 20 characters." & @CRLF & "Total: " & $len)         ;Exit         GUIDelete($Form1)     EndIf Until $len < "20" MsgBox(0, "Done", "")

      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!
