_Excel_Close and don't save

Recommended Posts

cheesestain

_Excel_Close is set to False for save changes but it doesn't seem to be working.  Excel is stuck at the save yes/no/cancel prompt.

Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_BookOpen Example", "Error creating the Excel application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)

; Open an existing workbook and return its object identifier.
Local $sWorkbook = @ScriptDir & "\Validation.xlsm"
Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sWorkbook)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_BookOpen Example 1", "Error opening '" & $sWorkbook & "'." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_BookOpen Example 1", "Workbook '" & $sWorkbook & "' has been opened successfully." & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Creation Date: " & $oWorkbook.BuiltinDocumentProperties("Creation Date").Value)

_Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, "Validation", $PO, "A2")
_Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, "Validation", $VendorID, "D2")
_Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, "Validation", $MPC, "C2")

$oExcel.Run("MB51_Extract") ; if your macro name is default_macro you do not need to include the sheet name, also you need to run the macro on the application not the workbook
$aUniqueID = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, "Validation", "E2:E11", 1)

If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeRead Example 2", "Error reading from workbook." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)

_Excel_Close($oExcel,True,True)
If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel", @error)

This says otherwise

_Excel_Close($oExcel,True,True)

 


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Still having trouble.  it looks like this line is the culprit.

$oExcel.Run("MB51_Extract")

If i comment it out _Excel_Close works as expected and doesn't save.  

Any ideas why running the macro will show the save yes/no/cancel prompt.

Depends on what the macro does.

The macro logs into SAP, exports data to .xls, copy data from .xls to the .xlsm.

The AutoIt script stores some data to an array.  At this point I have what I need and don't need the .xlsm saved to that's why I want to close without saving.

Another idea is to save the workbook with a new name to a temporary location and then delete the file.
