Working with text in Microsoft Word

Recommended Posts


I have created a Microsoft word document. Then I output data into a table, I would like to set the alignment of each column (Vertical AND Horizontal). I cannot figure out how to do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have searched msdn for hours and cannot figureo ut how to use the .Alignment properties. Thanks

Neither of the last 2 lines of this code did anything for me.

$oTable.cell(2+_GUICtrlListViewGetItemCount ( $lvItems ), 3).Range.Text = "SUBTOTAL"
            $oTable.cell(2+_GUICtrlListViewGetItemCount ( $lvItems ), 4).Range.Text = GUICtrlRead ( $lblLineItemsSubtotal )
            $oTable.cell(2+_GUICtrlListViewGetItemCount ( $lvItems ), 6).Range.Text = GUICtrlRead ( $lblProfitSubtotal )
            $oTable.cell(2+_GUICtrlListViewGetItemCount ( $lvItems ), 7).Range.Text = GUICtrlRead ( $lblTotalSubtotal )
            $oTable.cell(3+_GUICtrlListViewGetItemCount ( $lvItems ), 3).Range.Text = "SALES TAX"
            $oTable.cell(3+_GUICtrlListViewGetItemCount ( $lvItems ), 7).Range.Text = GUICtrlRead ( $lblTotalSalesTax )
            $oTable.cell(4+_GUICtrlListViewGetItemCount ( $lvItems ), 3).Range.Text = "TOTAL"
            $oTable.cell(4+_GUICtrlListViewGetItemCount ( $lvItems ), 7).Range.Text = GUICtrlRead ( $lblTotalTotal )
            $oTable.Rows.Item(1).Range.Font.Bold = True
            $oTable.Range.Font.Size = 8.5
            $oTable.Rows.Item(1).Range.Font.Size = 7.5
            $oTable.Range.Font.Name = "Trebuchet MS"
            $oTable.Columns.Item(1).Width = $oWordProfits.InchesToPoints("0.54")
            $oTable.Columns.Item(2).Width = $oWordProfits.InchesToPoints("2.16")
            $oTable.Columns.Item(3).Width = $oWordProfits.InchesToPoints("0.88")
            $oTable.Columns.Item(4).Width = $oWordProfits.InchesToPoints("1.08")
            $oTable.Columns.Item(5).Width = $oWordProfits.InchesToPoints("0.84")
            $oTable.Columns.Item(6).Width = $oWordProfits.InchesToPoints("0.77")
            $oTable.Columns.Item(7).Width = $oWordProfits.InchesToPoints("0.7")
            $oTable.Columns.Item(1).Alignment = "3"
            $oTable.Columns.Item(1).HorizontalLineFormat.Alignment = "wdHorizontalLineAlignRight"

The first maybe useful thing to come to mind is that perhaps the .Alignment property is read-only. But the latest release version of AutoIt does come with many Word Management UDF's. Have you looked in the AutoIt Help file:

Help file > User Defined Functions > Word Management

If you ever put any of those functions in your AutoIt script, be sure to have this line near the top of your AutoIt script:

#include <Word.au3>
