Export Data XLS/ODS to DBF

Post by wolfgang.schwarz » Wed Dec 13, 2017 5:29 pm

I'm not sure if I'm right here. I have a problem with open Office Calc. With Excel, the example works very well. I don't know about objects. In the HMG debugger I get the value of ODoc class Win_Oleauto object. Can someone give me the straightening way to read and cache the cell values. With Kind regards

Hola Wolfgang

Porqué no solamente exportar tu archivo ".xls" ó ".ods" como delimitado por comas ","
y lo importas con un Append en tu DBF ???
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Wolfgang

Why not just export your file ".xls" or "ODS" as comma delimited ","
And you import it with an Append on your DBF ???



APPEND FROM <xcFile>
[FIELDS <idField list>]
[<scope>] [WHILE <lCondition>] [FOR <lCondition>]
[SDF | DELIMITED [WITH BLANK | <xcDelimiter>] |
[VIA <xcDriver>]]

Thanks for the information on this way I did not even think.
The next problem will be the adoption of the text / CSV format. I am already looking for it in the documents of Open Office. Only the translation does not work properly.

Hi Wolfgang!
You don't need to abandon openoffice.
Please look at my little sample reading data from OpenOffice calc document:

Code: Select all

#include <minigui.ch>


function Main
	MsgInfo("start test")
	ReadDataFromOpenOffice()
return
*-----------------

function ReadDataFromOpenOffice

	local oServiceManager,oDesktop,oDocument,oSchedule,oSheet,oCell,oColums,oColumn
	local i
	local cFile := "test.ods"
	local cPath 
	
	//
	//we need to convert file name to url format
	cPath := substr(exename(),1,rat("\",exename()))
	cPath := strtran(cPath, "\", "/")
	cPath += cFile

	begin sequence with { |e| break(e)}
		oServiceManager := TOleAuto():New("com.sun.star.ServiceManager")
		oDesktop := oServiceManager:createInstance("com.sun.star.frame.Desktop")
	recover using e
		oDeskTop := NIL
	end sequence

	IF oDesktop = NIL
		MsgStop("No accesss to OpenOffice","Error")
		RETURN Nil
	ENDIF
	
	oDocument := oDesktop:loadComponentFromURL("file:///"+ cPath, "_blank", 0, {})
	oSchedule := oDocument:GetSheets()
	oSheet := oSchedule:GetByIndex(0)

	for nCol = 0 to 4
		oCell := oSheet:getCellByPosition(nCol,0)
		nCellValue := oCell:value
		cCellValue := oCell:string
		msgDebug(nCol, nCellValue, cCellValue)
	next
	//msginfo ("Ready Exit Open Office",)
	oDocument:Close( .T. )
return
You need to create workseet test.ods

I hope it will give you an idea how to continue your work!

That's exactly what I was looking for. But in Excel (2007) also works a CSV file without problems. In the Open Office the text import window with the separation option tab,;; Blank. What I found so far does not want to translate into harbor. The text file is with; separated and writes everything in column A. I now try the CSV data with Fopen and Freadstr read and prepare. But the previous path was better in my program. Thanks for your help

How to open an excel file to not be raedonly the data input attributes ?


IF ( oServiceManager := win_oleCreateObject( "com.sun.star.ServiceManager" ) ) != NIL
oDesktop := oServiceManager:createInstance( "com.sun.star.frame.Desktop" )
oBook := oDesktop:loadComponentFromURL( "file:///"+cDir+"\Poreska_prijava_pdv.xls", "_blank",0, {} )
oSheet := oBook:getSheets():getByIndex(0)


oSheet:getCellRangeByName( "B10" ):SetString('U PERIODU OD: '+ Dtoc(Datup1) + ' DO: '+ Dtoc(Datup2))

etc...

Thanks.
