Noobie needs helps with Array

Recommended Posts

Iceburg

Hi everyone, I'm at best a noobie.  I have read through the Array helps, and specifically the 2D array help file, and I'm struggling to get my code working.

I have an array that is read from a file, thats working great.  I'm trying to do some math on the array, so I can find the largest, average, lowest, day over day change %, etc.

The array read working fine, I get 43 lines, line 0 is 44, and then I get data that looks like

0519 $10,000

0520 $10,001

0521 $10,002

The data in this array is a single 1D array, breaking it out into 2 columns so I can do the math is what I can get to happen.  

How do I reference the array to store this data?  Second, how do I assign this data to the appropriate row/column?

Thanks in advance.

Dim $all_cash_amounts[UBound($aInput)][2]
Dim $max_amount_in_account
Dim $min_amount_in_account

_FileReadToArray($LC_Check_file_path, $aInput)
_ArrayDisplay($aInput)

local $date = StringRegExp($aInput[1], "(\d\d\d\d)", 1)
local $cash = StringRegExp($aInput[1], "\d+\s(-?[0-9\.\,]+)", 1)
ConsoleWrite("Date is: " & $date & @CRLF)


For $i = 1 To UBound($aInput)-1
    $date = StringRegExp($aInput[$i], "(\d\d\d\d)", 1)
    $all_cash_amounts[$i][2] = $date[$i][0], $cash[$i][1]
    
Next


_ArrayDisplay($all_cash_amounts)

First, Do Your Cash Amounts always have '$' ? This would simplify it a bit

You Could Use StringSplit

#include <Array.au3>
Local $aInput[2] = ["0225 $123.50", "0226 $163.50"]
Local $all_cash_amounts[UBound($aInput)][2]
For $i = 0 To UBound($aInput) - 1
    ;$date = StringRegExp($aInput[$i], "(\d\d\d\d)", 1)
    ;$cash = ...
    ;$all_cash_amounts[$i][0] = $date
    ;$all_cash_amounts[$i][1] = $cash
    ;Or
    $aTemp = StringSplit($aInput[$i], "$", $STR_NOCOUNT)
    If Not @error Then
        $all_cash_amounts[$i][0] = $aTemp[0]
        $all_cash_amounts[$i][1] = $aTemp[1]
    EndIf

Next
_ArrayDisplay($all_cash_amounts)

Or just use _FileReadToArray

_FileReadToArray($LC_Check_file_path, $aInput, 4, " $ ")

Subz, people like you make people like me look stupid, and for that I appreciate you.  That worked perfect.

      Hi Virtual People,
      My array works perfectly fine. However, what is the best practice if the line in the array doesn't have the correct amount of columns and if I can add a placeholder?

       
      For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") Next

      hi all,
      reviewing the forum, this thread is applicable: 
       
       
      I wanted to know if there is now a better way to do this?
      In essence, I load a tab delimited txt file into an array (works well). I used tab, as some fields in the original csv contains commas.
      However, I needed autoit to manipulate this array, and output it as a csv.
      IF my array contains items with a comma, without double quotes around the field, then how best do I get a csv out of this?
      My current workaround is to filewritefromarray tab delimited, then open it in excel and save as a csv. I will need to check this to see how the address fields behave that contain a comma.
       
      Any thoughts would be appreciated.

      Hi All,

      I would like to know how you would take a FileLineRead and insert it into an array which then inserts it into Excel?
      One thing to know is the files content is broken up, so I only use half of the content within $FileRead1.
      So its imperative that the $value1, $value2, etc variables be used. 
      Code below:
      $FileRead1 = FileReadLine("C:\temp\sample.txt",1) For $count = 1 To _FileCountLines($FileRead1) Step 1 $string = FileReadLine($FileRead1, $count) $input = StringSplit($string, ",", 1) $value1 = $input[1] $value2 = $input[2] $value3 = $input[3] $value4 = $input[4] _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value1, "A1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value2, "B1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value3, "C1") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, $oWorkbook.Activesheet, $value4, "D1") Next

      Hello,
      I'm trying to write a script that moves copies excel cells into an array. I'll than manipulate the values and send array into another program. 
      I don't want range to be specific to a workbook, or sheet, or set of cells.
      I want user to be able to highlight desired cells and to copy either normally ("Ctrl+C") or by a hotkey ("Alt+C"). 
      Could someone help me with this?
      Thank you,
      I've tried to write the framework: (edited)
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <Excel.au3> HotKeySet("!v", "Pastedata") While True Sleep(1000) WEnd func Makearray() local $bArray ;User has cells already copied ;Convert clipboard into an array ;I don;t know how excel stores data to clipboard so don;t know how to bring it into array _Arraydisplay($bArray) MsgBox(0,0,$bArray) return $bArray endfunc func Pastedata() Local $aArray MsgBox(0,0,"wait",1) ;make array based on assumption user has already copied a range to clipboard $aArray = Makearray() ;paste code ;don;t worry about this I got the rest endfunc

      I want to make a while loop, that creates variables based on a array. For thist I created the array $iDsO with the number and the name of folders in an other folder. Every folder has a different name an I want to create variables(arrays) for each folder that show me all the files in that folder. For example: I have the Folder \Folder1. In it there are the Folders \1, \2, \3. In 1, 2 and 3 there are some files(.png). The array for Folder1 is $iDsO and now I want to crate the arrays $iDsO1, $iDsO2 and $iDsO3 with the files in them can I make something like this:
      While $iDs > 0 ;$iDs is the number of files in Folder1>> $iDsO[0] $iDs#here should come the Foldername for example '1'# = _FileListtoArray(@ProgramFilesDir&"\Folder1\"&$iDsO[$iDs]) $iDs = $iDs - 1 Wend So that in the End I have three variabels ($iDs1, $iDs2 and $iDs3)
       
      Is this posible or if not what could I do instead ( I don´t know the number of folders in Folder1 in the begining).
