[Solved] Create borders around excel range

Recommended Posts

AnonymousX

Sorry if this is a repost, but having some trouble searching for the answer and pretty tired right now.

I'm just wondering how to make a border around a range of cells in Excel. I want the regular lines created by selecting "All Borders" option around F2:G3

I saw this code:

With $oExcel.ActiveSheet.range("F2:G3")
    .Select
    .Borders($xlEdgeBottom).LineStyle = $xlContinuous
    .Borders($xlEdgeBottom).Weight = $xlThick
    .Borders($xlEdgeBottom).ColorIndex = $xlAutomatic
EndWith

but I get errors of these variables not existing. It seems these no longer exist in the "#include <Excel.au3>"

Is there another include file I need?

I got this to work for highlighting cells, wondering if there is a option similar to this for all borders?

$oExcel.ActiveSheet.Range("F2:G3").Interior.ColorIndex = 6

Thanks

Thanks Water.

 

Didn't figure out a way to turn it into a one liner of code, to get just outside border for range, but can now get it to work with writing something for every case (Top, Bot, Left, Right).

Also from what you sent was able to write something to get all borders without having to write a line for top, bot, left, right. Might be useful to someone in the future

;Equivalent to "All Borders" for range given
    $oExcel.ActiveSheet.range("F2:G3").Borders.LineStyle = 1

      Hi guys. I know this is a newbie topic, very newbie, but i've read a lot of stuff and still don't get it. I just need to copy something from Excel cell, paste this in other program, copy something in this program and paste in other Excel cell. Something like...
      Copy A2 Use some WindowActivate and MouseMove stuff and CTRL+C (not a problem) Go back to the Excel sheet Paste that content in C2 Then Copy A3 Use some WindowActivate and MouseMove stuff and CTRL+C (not a problem) Go back to the Excel sheet Paste that content in C3 ... And it goes on The problem is, how can i "communicate" with Excel and do this row change? Like A2 to C2 and A3 to C3 ... In a efficient way that can be done like hundreds of times.
      Very newbie question but still not understanding this.
       
      Ty guys.

      Dear members of the forum,
      I need to open excel files that may or may not need a password and finally move the files that needs password to manual queue.
      Is there a fastest way to do this?
       
      PS: I have a huge respect for the rules of this forum. I am not asking assistance to override any security measure. I just need to segregate the files that needs passwords.

      Hi guys,
      without including everything (unless you want it)
      I am copying data from a table in chrome and wanting to paste it into excel.
      Copying in Chrome works.
      I can paste it into the field i want by emulating goto -> ctrl V:
      WinActivate($dataload) WinWaitActive($dataload) Sleep(500) $oWorkbook1.Sheets("ItemReturn").Activate Sleep(500) $msg = "Measuring Sheet" conwrite() ttips2() Local Const $xlUp = -4162 With $oWorkbook1.ActiveSheet ; process active sheet $oRangeLast = .UsedRange.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeLastCell) ; get a Range that contains the last used cells $iRowCount = .Range(.Cells(1, 1), .Cells($oRangeLast.Row, "B")).Rows.Count ; get the the row count for the range starting in row/column 1 and ending at the last used row/column $iLastCell = .Cells($iRowCount + 1, "B").End($xlUp).Row ; start in the row following the last used row and move up to the first used cell in column "B" and grab this row number EndWith $NewStartCell = $iLastCell + 2 $msg = "moving to location" conwrite() ttips2() Sleep(250) Send("^g") WinWait("Go To") Sleep(100) Send("B" & $NewStartCell) Sleep(100) Send("{ENTER}") Sleep(500) Send("^v")  
      But, I want to use _excel_rangecopypaste, pasting from the clipboard
      _Excel_RangeCopyPaste($oWorkbook1.ActiveSheet, default, "B" & $NewStartCell,default,$xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats) If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeCopy Example 2", "Error pasting cells." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) however, this gives me error 4 , extended@:  -2147352567
      How can i fix this or find out how to debug this error?
       
      Thanks

      Hi.
      I try to figure out who is using a excel workbook which I can only open "read only". I use this code:
      #include <Array.au3> #include <Excel.au3> Local $sFile = ; excel file with path on a network drive Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open(True, True) Local $oTabelle = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sFile) Local $aUsers If IsObj($oTabelle) Then $aUsers = $oTabelle.UserStatus _ArrayDisplay($aUsers) EndIf If I am the one allowed to write to the excel file (I'm the first one who opened it) then I will get an array with myself:

      If my collegue opened the excel file first and I run the code I get the following error message:
      "H:\_Conrad lokal\Downloads\AutoIt3\_COX\Tests\test.au3" (9) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.: $aUsers = $oTabelle.UserStatus $aUsers = $oTabelle^ ERROR The excel file is on a network drive. Is that's the problem?
      Regards, Conrad

      Note: it seems that if User Account Control (UAC) is enabled then 7zip is unable to overwrite the destination file (using the same name).
      In this case, a possible solution would be to rename the original excel file before (see _PathSplit in help file).
      In my case i prefer just to disable UAC
