Google sheets example throws com error


Recommended Posts

Does anyone familiar with working with objects have any idea why it might be throwing COM errors?

Google API doesn't have any samples that make sense to convert to use Google Sheets in Autoit. 
 

_Example()
Func _Example()

    Local $oErrorHandler = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", "_ErrFunc")
    #forceref $oErrorHandler

;---- From https://scand.com/products/gspread/
   ; $sName - User name, any you like
   ; $sClientIdAndSecret - "client_id|client_secret" format
   ; example client id: 292085223830.apps.googleusercontent.com
   ; $sScriptId - Google Apps script ID
   ; https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/vba/api/excel.application.maillogon
   $sName = "Owner"
   $sClientIdAndSecret = "myclientidString|myclientSecret" ; from generate client_id.json
   $sScriptId = "myappscriptidString"   
   Local $oApp = ObjCreate("GSpreadCOM.Application")
   $oApp.MailLogon($sName, $sClientIdAndSecret, $sScriptId)
   ;$oApp.Workbooks.Item("Example2").Worksheets.Item("Sheet1").Activate()

EndFunc   ;==>_Example

Throws the following errors:
 

GoogleSheetsTest.au3 (16) : ==> COM Error intercepted !
    err.number is:         0x800401F3
    err.windescription:    Invalid class string

    err.description is:     
    err.source is:         
    err.helpfile is:     
    err.helpcontext is:     
    err.lastdllerror is:     0
    err.scriptline is:     16
    err.retcode is:     0x00000000

GoogleSheetsTest.au3 (17) : ==> COM Error intercepted !
    err.number is:         0x000000A9
    err.windescription:    Variable must be of type 'Object'.
    err.description is:     
    err.source is:         
    err.helpfile is:     
    err.helpcontext is:     
    err.lastdllerror is:     0
    err.scriptline is:     17
    err.retcode is:     0x00000000

GoogleSheetsTest.au3 (18) : ==> COM Error intercepted !
    err.number is:         0x000000A9
    err.windescription:    Variable must be of type 'Object'.
    err.description is:     
    err.source is:         
    err.helpfile is:     
    err.helpcontext is:     
    err.lastdllerror is:     0
    err.scriptline is:     18
    err.retcode is:     0x00000000

Hey,

I am not familiar with this, however are these strings supposed to be like this? It is as if you are sending them as a literal and not a variable. 

$sClientIdAndSecret = "myclientidString|myclientSecret" ; from generate client_id.json
$sScriptId = "myappscriptidString"

Just looking at them, maybe you need:

Local $sClientIDString = "the actual id here"
Local $smyClientSecret = "copy paste the json contents?"
Local $sScriptID = "actual app script ID" ; Not a string that is = "myappscriptidString"
   
$sClientIdAndSecret = $sClientIDString & "|" & $smyClientSecret ; from generate client_id.json

Again, I am not familiar with this, and may be totally off. Sorry for wasting your time if so :)

After installing and using test.vbs from instalation package I get this kind of error:

Checking "c:\Program Files\GSpread.NET\GSpreadCOM.tlb"  with @trancexx TLBViewer was also not succesufully for me.

I end with this:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

   If @error Then MsgBox($MB_OK + $MB_TOPMOST + $MB_ICONERROR, '', '@error = ' & @error & @CRLF & '@extended = ' & @extended)

   $oApp.MailLogon($sName, $sClientIdAndSecret, $sScriptId)
   ;$oApp.Workbooks.Item("Example2").Worksheets.Item("Sheet1").Activate()

EndFunc   ;==>_Example

        ; Do anything here.

EndFunc   ;==>_ErrFunc

But with no success.
