Creating Pivot table and chart In Excel COM

27 Nov 2016, 07:46

I am trying to create a pivot table, and then a pivot chart from ahk for embedding into an email. I am a total noob, so please forgive my code quality. I am having trouble getting my pivot table set up right, and cannot get a chart to appear for the life of me. I have included references to what posts I have been working from, as well as desired end result at the bottom of this post.

My data is two columns, with (could make it without) headers of Time, and Warning I want to be able to create a chart that shows the amount, and type of warning over time, from there either get a handle on the object and place it into an outlook email, or even just a copy paste would work for me. Please advise how to get this done, I think I am so close.

Thank you for any help.

Code: Select all



Nothing:="Nothing to report, have a wonderful day."

EMIN := Clipboard                                       ; Email text var
Loop, Parse, EMIN,`n,`r                             ; parse email by line
tmp := StrSplit(A_LoopField, ";")           ; for each line break it into chunks by ";" 
rmrks := tmp.6                                  ; Warn code is in 6th index     
If (InStr(rmrks, "Warning"))                    ; If this is a warning line
date1:=StrSplit(tmp.1, "/")                 ; date/time is in DD/MM/YYYY , split it up by "/"
date2= % date1.2 "/" date1.1 "/" date1.3    ;  Rearrange the date into MM/DD/YYYY   
EMOUT .= date2 "`t" rmrks "`n"              ; Push into VAR "11/24/2016 13:40:45    WARNING MESSAGE"

EMOUT := StrReplace(EMOUT,"""") ; Replace all of the quotes in the var with Null

Loop, Parse, EMOUT,`n,`r    ; Split output by line and then...
tmp := StrSplit(A_LoopField, ["`t"])   ; split lines by tab
when.insert(tmp.1)                  ; insert date/time stamp into "when" array
what.insert(tmp.2)                  ; insert Warn Code into "what" array

if (emout!="")                                  ; If there was stuff to put into array
XL := ComObjCreate("Excel.Application")    ; create an excel object
wbk := xl.Workbooks.Add                          ; add a workbook to the object
Xl.Visible := True                         ; make it visible
XL.Range("A1").Value := "Time"             ;Create Time header
XL.Range("A:A").columnwidth := "20" 
XL.Range("B:B").columnwidth := "56.86"
XL.Range("B1").Value := "Warning"          ; Create Warning Header
for index in when       
        Xl.Range("A" . index+1).Value := when[index]   ;add everything in the "when" array
for index in what 
        Xl.Range("B" . index+1).Value := what[index]   ;add everything in the "what" array          

rng := xl.Sheets(1).UsedRange.address
trgt := xl.Sheets(1).range("c1")
pvt := xl.ActiveWorkbook.PivotCaches.Create(xlDatabase:=1, rng, xlPivotTableVersion12:=3).CreatePivotTable(trgt, "PivotTable1", ,xlPivotTableVersion12:=3)
pvt.PivotFields("warning").Orientation := 1
pvt.PivotFields("warning").Position := 1                
pvt.PivotFields("time").Orientation := 1
pvt.PivotFields("time").Position := 2           
pvt.AddDataField(pvt.PivotFields("Warning"), "Count of Warning",  -4112)    

    Ctrgt := xl.Sheets(1).range("D10")
Sheet := xl.Sheets(1)
wbk.ShowPivotChartActiveFields := True
xl.ActiveChart.ChartType := 51
PF := Sheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Time")
PF.Orientation := 1
PF.Position := 2
PF := Sheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Warning") 
PF.Orientation := 1 
PF.Position := 1

PF := Sheet.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Count of Warning") 
PF.Orientation := 1 
PF.Position := 3
if (emout="")
Msgbox, %Nothing%

that's when an example is too complicated to get it within a few minutes or if it's unclear what the problem/the question is.
