Reading an Excel file


Recommended Posts

Hello again,

Is it possible to use Autoit to read a .xls file without actually opening Excel? I only want to read its contents of a file saved on a server. I don't intend to write anything on it. I've see the UDF _Excel_RangeRead but I'm guessing that only works on opened documents.

Thanks.

There are UDFs available to create Excel files but I'm not aware of an UDF to read Excel files.
If you have Excel installed, I suggest to use the Excel UDF and open the workbooks in read-only mode.

Yeah, thought so. I guess I will be using .csv files then. Thanks
