Excel Error Message

3 posts in this topic

Is it possible to find out if a document is already in use before you run a script? We have a file that is on our network. If somebody has it open, and I run my script it errors out due to the "This document is already in use" dialog. How can I get around this, or check for it?

Hi,

What is your script?

Are you using ExcelCom.au3?

If so, can you tell me ; Does"_XLReadOnly" work for this?

Or would that script help you with a workaround?

Best, Randall

I'm such an idiot. I always take pieces from other scripts I have and make them work. I'll give it a try. Sounds like a solid answer to my problem.

Anyways heres my code:

If @OSVersion <> 'WIN_XP' Then 
    MsgBox(16+4096, "Ship-To #'s",'Error: This program is currently setup to be used on a '&@CRLF _
                                & '       Windows XP operating system only. Sorry for '&@CRLF _
                                & '       any inconvinence.')
    Exit
EndIf
    

Dim $MsgBox_Answer,$MsgBox_Answer,$ShipTo,$SO,$FilePath,$MyExcel,$oExcel

$MyExcel = ObjCreate("Excel.Application"); Create an Excel Object
$FilePath = 'G:\Packaging\Shared\Sales Order Lookup.xls'
$MyExcel.Workbooks.open ($FilePath, 0)
    $oExcel = ObjGet($FilePath)
    While 1
        $SO = InputBox("Ship-To #'s", 'Sales Order Number (without "SO")', '','',200,125)
        If @error = 1 Then ExitLoop
        If $SO = '' Then ContinueLoop
        $oExcel.activesheet.Range ("B1").value = 'so' & $SO
        $ShipTo = $oExcel.activesheet.range ('D4').value
        If $ShipTo = 0 Then
            MsgBox(16+4096, "Ship-To #'s",'Error: The sales order number you have entered is not on file.'&@CRLF _ 
                                        & '        Sales Order: '&$SO &@CRLF &@CRLF _
                                        & 'Fix:  Alert shipping to this so that they can update the file' &@CRLF _
                                        & '        if this is a proper sales order.'&@CRLF &@CRLF _
                                        & '        File is located at: ' &@CRLF _
                                        & '        G:\Packaging\Shared\Sales Order Lookup.xls')
        Else
            $MsgBox_Answer = MsgBox(65, "Ship-To #'s", 'Sales Order Number: ' & $SO & @CRLF & 'Ship-To Number      : ' & $ShipTo)
        EndIf
        If $MsgBox_Answer = 2 Then ExitLoop
        $MsgBox_Answer  = ''
        $ShipTo         = ''
        $SO             = ''
    WEnd
    $oExcel.saved = 1; Prevent questions from excel to save the file
    $oExcel.close (0)
$MyExcel.quit
$MyExcel = ''
