Identify the excel file that may need a password

Recommended Posts

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.

Last I knew there was no way to know if a workbook was password protected without opening it (someone may prove me wrong). About the best you could do was loop through your list of files and try to open them (look at _Excel_BookOpen) by specifying the password parameter (a simple "abc" will suffice). If the workbook has no password on it, it will open with a code 0; if it does have a password it will throw an @error of 3 and @extended of -2147352567. You can then move the file.

Pseudo:

#include <Excel.au3>

Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, @DesktopDir & "\test.xlsx", True, True, "abc", "abc")
    If @error Then
        if @extended = "-2147352567" Then
            ;Move file
        Else
            ;Handle other @error such as missing file
        EndIf
    Else
        ;File not password protected, do whatever
    EndIf

_Excel_BookClose($oWorkbook)
_Excel_Close($oExcel)

      Hi, I am using excel as input media for my program. The excel file (i tried with .xls, .xlsx and .xlsm format) has inputs which the autoit script reads during the run and performs few calculations. Some times (not always), after the run, when i try to open the excel file manually, the file doesnt open at all in excel. see the screenshot attached. However, if the execute the autoit script, the scripts still reads the existing data from that excel and performs the calcs. I copied the excel file to another computer and there too, it doesnt open.  So, after this, i cannot edit the excel forever (if i need to change any inputs). It is only this particular file that got affected. other excel files works normal.  What could be the problem here.  please help as this is a new challenge for me during my program development.

      Hi,
       
      I've been trying to automate modification of an excel file and the last thing I am stuck on is deleting all the rows where the value of Column 13 is 0. 
      I believe the error is due to me not fully understanding the syntax so this is where I'm stuck: 
       
      Func Hotkey2() Global $aUsedRange = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, 1) _ArrayDisplay($aUsedRange) For $iRow = UBound($aUsedRange) - 1 to 3 Step -1 If $aUsedRange[$iRow][13] = 0 Then _Excel_RangeDelete($oWorkbook.Worksheets(1), $aUsedRange[$iRow] & ":" & $aUsedRange[$iRow], default, 1) If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeDelete Example 2", "Error deleting rows." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) EndIf Next EndFunc  
      While my script properly locates the row which contains value 0 in Column 13, I am not sure how to set it to the corresponding row in the excel workbook?  My above experiment gives me $vRange error and I've been toying around with it to no avail. The only way I get the Script to delete a row is by actually specifying "4:4" or "6:8" etc. 
      Where am I going wrong?
       
      Thanks!
