In the Excel activity Write Value you the Range object is default at “A1” How can I adress the cell index instead - like the below VBA code: Range(“A1”) = 1 Cells(1, 1) = 1 Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(1, 1)) = 1
It would be really helpful to know it.
Thank you in advanced,
one way I access the cells using write value dynamically is as follows.
create a variable num1, and assign a value to that variable dynamically and append that value to the range
eg : num1= 2
then range will be “A”+ num1
so this will make it dynamic and you can access any cell in excel and also it will be helpful while looping through the cells .
Thank you for the answer but I need to have the column also as a variable.
I want to pass the column as a number and then I want to know how to get the letter (in Excel) of the number given.
Maybe there are snippets which can do that, but I’ve looking for and I haven’t found anything useful yet.
I haven’t, the array is an optional solution but not what I wanted at all. We definitely need another activity to address cells in relative references. I will try to figure it out and in case I do, I will share it ;).
Sorry for posting on a solved thread, but I am encountering a problem, I am trying to write cell to an existing excelsheet in a specific column for each row, in the “for each row” activity. I tried to define the cell in “write cell” activity as ““D” + row.ToString” (trying to write to column D), but there is a - Write Cell : The range does not exist Exception.
Actually I set up a variable called rowCount that went up by 1 every time the loop went through. It was a generic var not a string. then I added it to the write cell activity “D” + Rowcount. didn’t wwant to give anyone a bum steer
Thanks, Since my Client have the excel with some hidden rows, and they use filters. So is there any method in which I can directly take the row number instead of taking from datatable? So that it will be very helpful.
Since you need a string, and you’re doing an addition + operation for string and double, double takes precedence (hence the error message that string is not implicitly convertible to double, because it isn’t).
You need to either use "A" & num1 or "A" + num1.ToString("F0") . & operator in VB.Net will implicitly call .ToString() for primitive types. Do note that it will take default formatting, so for Double type it may not be what you want. Works great for Int types though. F0 format specifier is for fixed decimal precision of 0, meaning no decimal precision (since there can’t be half a row offset in Excel).
