[SOLVED] Sending data from Excel to Chrome

Recommended Posts


I want to check some Excel data against data on a website in Chrome. I use Chrome because the site I use does not function properly in Internet Explorer or Firefox. I know how to do the Excel stuff I just can not figure out how to send to Chrome, let alone check to see if the data matches or not. I am also having trouble finding any help online while searching for Chrome functions for Autoit. I have a Chrome UDF installed but I still can not figure out how to get my code to properly function. (I am not posting code because I am  sure my code isn't right, to begin with)

As usual, any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

You have to forgot Chrome UDF since it s not orking anymore . You need an extention that is not allowed to install by chrome store. Also you have to get this extention on all other Host that will run your script.


Check UIA automation.

In addition you got already the knowledge of Excel_UDF.au3

I did not like the send method though it kind of worked and I could not get the Webdriver UDF to work so I dropped the project.  

I am too busy right now to find a way around it.

I was able to store the excel data in a multidimensional array and then I used WebDriver that @Danp2 recommended. Webdiver allowed me to connect with Chrome to send the data I wanted to the correct webpage. Sorry about not posting the code. I hope however that the explanation was good enough for others figure it out as well. This problem has been solved.

      I have a python script automate.py and I wanna run it via CMD.
      As I know to execute python via CMD is something like this
      $CMD = "Something python here" Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CMD) But how can I just open the 1 CMD and send multiple commands to the CMD based on the function called?
      For instance like:

      Launch CMD and send python then send import automate If google() function is called - send automate.google() to the CMD If yahoo() function is called - send automate.yahoo() to the CMD  I don't want to execute multiple CMD to call the automate functions. This is due to inside the python script have global variable to handle duplicate flag.
      So if I execute multiple CMD to call the functions, the global variable will be keep new as NULL. Which is not my expectation.

      I only found that AutoIt can actually execute the entire python script or execute the .exe (converted to .exe from .py)
      But what if I just want call the particular function? If that possible to do so?
      This is because python can't create fancy GUI like AutoIT does. So my plan is use AutoIT to have fancy GUI.
      Then each buttons will trigger specific function in the python script or .exe file.
      For instances:
      btnSum - trigger function in python script or .exe file (funcSum)
      btnMinus - trigger function in python script or .exe file (funcMinus)
      Thanks for advance information.

      I have an issue when starting Excel with the following code
      #include <Excel.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) GUICreate("Excel Test", 600, 440) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "MenuExit") GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ; Create application object Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open() If @error Then Exit MsgBox(0, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example", "Error creating the Excel application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) ; sit here forever with an option to react every 10ms While 1 Sleep(10) WEnd Exit Func MenuExit() GUIDelete() Exit EndFunc If the Excel is a standard install, everything is OK. If Excel has the Kutools add-in (https://www.extendoffice.com/product/kutools-for-excel.html) installed and active the excel process runs (and is visible in task manager until killed), but it never displays. Disabling the add-in restores normal functionality.
      If I add some additional code to interact with the excel application then still nothing happens if the add-in is active. However, if Excel is started first and then the AutoIt code is run, it is able to interact with the Excel session as normal.
      Summary: The Excel add-in Kutools prevents excel being started with the _Excel_Open() command from AutoIt. Any AutoIt side work-arounds for this?
