Read XLS file and display the cells of a range

The following example

  • Reads the cells of a range of an XLS file and displays two columns of each row
  • The Excel worksheet has no header row

Example AutoIt script:

Global Const $iCursorType = 0 ; adOpenForwardOnly
Global Const $iLockType = 1 ; adLockReadOnly
Global Const $iOptions = 512 ; adCmdTableDirect - Return all rows from the specified table
Global $oADOConnection = ObjCreate("ADODB.Connection") ; Create a connection object
Global $oADORecordset = ObjCreate("ADODB.Recordset") ; Create a recordset object
Global $sFilename = @ScriptDir & "\ADO_Example_Excel.xls"
Global $sADOConnectionString = 'Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=' & $sFilename & ';Extended Properties="Excel 8.0;HDR=No"'
$oADOConnection.Open($sADOConnectionString) ; Open the connection
Global $sADOSQL = "Select F1,F2 FROM [Sheet1$A1:B2]" ; Select all records and all fields
$oADORecordset.Open($sADOSQL, $oADOConnection, $iCursorType, $iLockType, $iOptions) ; Issue the SQL query
With $oADORecordset
    While Not .EOF ; repeat until End-Of-File (EOF) is reached
        ; Write the content of all fields to the console separated by | by processing the fields collection
        ConsoleWrite("Process the fields collection:          ")
        For $oField In .Fields
            ConsoleWrite($oField.Value & "|")
        ; Write a second line by accessing all fields of the collection by name or item number
        ConsoleWrite("Process the fields by name/item number: " & .Fields("F1").Value & "|" & .Fields(1).Value & "|" & @CR)
        .MoveNext ; Move To the Next record
$oADORecordset.Close ; Close the recordset
$oADORecordset = 0 ; Release the recordset object
$oADOConnection.Close ; Close the connection
$oADOConnection = 0 ; Release the connection object
