Ms Excel And Notepad (long)


Recommended Posts

The script below gives me errors when the output goes to MS Excel... so I sent the output to Notepad and it works. As part of the debug, I added sending the entire contents of the clipboard to Excel and that caused yet another error - element number 1 of arrays that have multiple elements are wrong (at least on the 2 systems that I tried it on.) Both systems are running XP pro sp1 and Office 2002[MS Excel (10.5815.4219) SP-2].

I get the same results with autoit-v3.0.91-beta.exe and autoit-v3.0.92-beta.exe.

The original error that I noticed was test4 G22 should be G2 and test5 W2 should be W22... there may be other errors.

Sorry so long of a post, I tried reducing the test string size and the errors went away... this version is reduced... I send the strings to and from the clipboard because in the "real" version of the script, the strings come from another application via the clipboard.

Excell does autofil, so if you type Fred, then the line under it you type Fre{enter} it will fill in Fred.

Not an AutoIt problem, it is a Excel feature.

open excel type t111{down}t{down}t{down} see what I meen?

I'd guess that when W2 is typed the excel autocomplete function overwrites it with W22.

In excel under test 5 I went down the the W22 entry, deleted it and then typed "W2" W22 then popped up.
