Delete Excel Row based on value in Column of that Row

Recommended Posts

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!

The index of an array starts with 0, the row in Excel start with 1. So you need to to add 1 to get the row in Excel.
What you do is to process the content of the array where you need to process the index of the array:

Func Hotkey2()
   Local $aUsedRange = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, 1)
   _ArrayDisplay($aUsedRange)
   For $iRow = UBound($aUsedRange) - 1 to 3 Step -1
      If $aUsedRange[$iRow][13] = 0 Then
         _Excel_RangeDelete($oWorkbook.Worksheets(1), $iRow+1 & ":" & $iRow+1, Default, 1)
         If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeDelete Example 2", "Error deleting rows." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
      EndIf
   Next
EndFunc

Ah,

 

That makes total sense. I was too hung up on the part of removing 1 from the UBound value without realising that of course $iRow required the opposite.

Thanks - as usual,  gonna have to test this at work tomorrow but it makes sense.

Hmm interesting, how would I implement that to Autoit? 

I tried testing it by first manually sorting so all the columns with value 0 in "N:N" was visible, and then running the following: 

Func Hotkey3()
   $oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range("N1:N999") & lines).SpecialCells _
    (xlCellTypeVisible).EntireRow.Delete
 EndFunc

 

But I am not the best when it comes to VBA (not the best = done it twice) , and my programming journey started about 2 weeks ago so I am still learning as I go. 

 

I get the error: 

".../ (64) : ==> Unknown function name.:
$oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range("N1:N999") & lines).SpecialCells (xlCellTypeVisible).EntireRow.Delete
$oWorkbook.ActiveSheet.Range("N1:N999") & ^ ERROR

 

So I assume the code has to be slightly modified as to what I got from Stackoverflow?

If you want to delete all visible rows I suggest you have a look at the wiki. Replace RangeRead with RangeDelete ;)

      Hey,
      as part of a larger Programm I am trying to copy the values from one cell in an Excel file to another. The code I am using is the folowing.
       
      Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open() If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeCopy Example", "Error creating the Excel application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) _Excel_RangeCopyPaste($oExcel.ActiveSheet, "V4:W43", "X4", False, $xlPasteValues, Default, True) If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeCopy Example 4", "Error copying rows." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeCopy Example 4", "2 Rows successfully pasted from the clipboard to row 1.") As I understood it the option $xlPasteValues should do the trick  but it is still copying the inserted formulas. I attached a test code and excel file.
      Thanks for the help Simon

      An "improper" "unusual" use of Excel
      the script allows the creation of artistic images by simply coloring the background of the individual cells of the Excel workbook.
      Although definitely useless ... I find it quite funny though
      have a good time
      many thanks to @UEZ , @Malkey , @water
      p.s.
      I think the pixelite + color to array process can be simplified, but I used the two ready-made functions provided by UEZ and Malkey. I thank both of you (credits  and links in listing)
      p.p.s.
      strange behaviour: while excell is filling cells, if you move the mouse pointer off the excell window, the fill speed increases ... (?)

      Hi guys
      Need little help with filtering.
      I'm trying to filter specific weeks from power pivot table using this code recorded with Excel VBA :
       
      #include <Excel.au3> Global $oExcel = _Excel_Open() Global $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, "C:\Users\....\Orders.xlsb") $oWorkbook.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields( _ "[Report 2].[Week].[Week]").VisibleItemsList = Array( _ "[Report 2].[Week].&[10]", "[Report 2].[Week].&[11]", _ "[Report 2].[Week].&[12]", "[Report 2].[Week].&[13]", _ "[Report 2].[Week].&[14]", "[Report 2].[Week].&[15]") But get error
      error: Array(): undefined function. Not sure how to resolve this.
