filewritetoarray csv, but with commas in the location

Recommended Posts

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.

A very raw solution:

Global $strTabFile = @ScriptDir & "\Tab.txt", _
       $strCSVFile = @ScriptDir & "\CSVFile.csv", _
       $arrFileContent


_FileReadToArray($strTabFile, $arrFileContent, $FRTA_NOCOUNT, @TAB)
_ArrayDisplay($arrFileContent, "Before formatting:")
FormatCSV($arrFileContent)
_ArrayDisplay($arrFileContent, "After formatting:")
_FileWriteFromArray($strCSVFile, $arrFileContent, Default, Default, ",")


Func FormatCSV(ByRef $arrArray)

    For $i = 0 To UBound($arrArray) - 1 Step 1
        For $j = 0 To UBound($arrArray, $UBOUND_COLUMNS) - 1 Step 1
            $arrArray[$i][$j] = '"' & $arrArray[$i][$j] & '"'
        Next
    Next

EndFunc

Thanks @FrancescoDiMuro

and thanks @water

so i see that my problem that I need to attend to first is initially loading it.

I need to load it correctly as a CSV, so I can export it accordingly.

The CSV.au3 that you've linked to does everything perfectly; I've kept my current import process (as its scripted out of sql already), and just utilised this as an export. Thanks

      Hi
      Trying this from autoit v3.3.14.5 and SCITE 3.19.102.1901.0 :
      help file , page "Language Reference - Variables" , sample autoit script about maps:

      Maps must be declared before use by defining their scope using the 'Global/Local/Static' keywords. Local $mControls[]
      So is my test script : only with this local declation.
      -check syntax is OK
      - running script : 

      test.au3" (13) : ==> Variable subscript badly formatted.: Local $mControls[] Local $mControls[^ ERROR ->14:51:49 AutoIt3.exe ended.rc:1
      any clue ?

      Hello Smart People!
      I have a multi-column .CSV that I would like to draw information from, in order to populate (send) that info to some fields in an Oracle form.  This would be for account-creation in Oracle.

      I have the basic script to navigate (tab) through the fields in the Oracle form, but I am SUPER-new to AutoIT and don’t quite see how to get the script to import and use variables from a .CSV

      For example:

      My script just waits for the page to be active, then enters data and tabs between fields like this:

      ; Wait for the window to be active WinWaitActive("Oracle is Cool - E-Business is the Best") ; User Name Send("jsmith") Send("{TAB}") ; Password Send("Password1") Send("{TAB}") Send("Password1") Send("{TAB}") ; Description Send("John Smith") Send("{TAB}") (etc. etc. etc.…)

      The winning solution would take one row at a time, feed it into fields on the Oracle form, save, and then start in on the next row

      It looks like I’d need a combination of “FileReadToArray” ( or“FileReadLine”?) and “StringSplit” to loop through the values and set them to variables, which would then replace my current "hard-coded" values to be typed them into the form?

      I found the following example in the “Help” snippets for stringsplit()… this seems like it’s in the ballpark but I’m having some trouble wrapping this around what I’ve put together, since each entry in the array would have multiple elements per line instead of just “Day”:

      Func Example() Local $aDays = StringSplit("Mon,Tues,Wed,Thur,Fri,Sat,Sun", ",") ;Split the string of days using the delimiter "," and the default flag value. #cs The array returned will contain the following values: $aDays[1] = "Mon" $aDays[2] = "Tues" $aDays[3] = "Wed" ... $aDays[7] = "Sun" #ce For $i = 1 To $aDays[0] ; Loop through the array returned by StringSplit to display the individual values. MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "$aDays[" & $i & "] - " & $aDays[$i]) Next EndFunc ;==>Example

      This post also seems like a similar example, but I don’t need it to be so selective RE: one specific column:
      https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/166261-how-to-read-csv-specific-row-and-columns


      Any advice would be appreciated!  Thanks for taking a minute to look!

      Hello, i want to search several directories for files with the largest numbers behind them (Like "video123") . They dont have a datatype. But there are also files with longer names and datatypes in these folders (Like "video778.mp4"). Is it possible to filter the _FileListToArray Syntax from
      to smth. like
       
      Here is my Code
      #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <array.au3> #include <File.au3> $filedir = @ScriptDir & "\" _checkfile() Func _checkfile() ConsoleWrite("______________________" & @CRLF) Local $arr[3] = ["music", "picture", "video"] For $i = 0 To UBound($arr) - 1 Local $arrayfiles = _FileListToArray($filedir & $arr[$i], $arr[$i] & "*", 1) If @error = 1 Then ConsoleWrite($arr[$i] & "Error 1") EndIf If @error = 4 Then ConsoleWrite($arr[$i] & "Error 2") ;Exit EndIf $arrayfilter = _ArrayMax($arrayfiles, 0, 1) Global $stringfiles = StringReplace($arrayfilter, $arr[$i], "") ConsoleWrite($arrayfilter & @CRLF) Next EndFunc ;==>_checkfile
