[Solved] Copy certain rows from one sheet to another

Post by Nelomf »

Hello

I have a calc workbook with 2 sheets, first is "encomenda" and second is "saida"
In the first sheet i have a table with the range B3:F300


I want to paste this table to the second sheet, range A2:E299, but only the rows that have values in the E column.
This must be done in OpenOffice basic because this is part of a procedure that i've already created..

I'm not a programmer and i need help.

Thanks in advance

Manuel

If you have to do this in VBA then you need MS Excel.
If you are not a VBA programmer, then you have to hire one.

You do not need any macro for this.
Just filter the source range before you copy and paste.

Yes i Know That.

But as i said before this code will be part of a greater macro.
It should copy and paste and then generate a PDF to send to a specific email all without operator handling.
Only the copy and paste is not made.
The table as 300 entries and only a few rows have all the columns with values.

Sorry for the english

Have you tried the macro recorder - not sure about the second part, but it might do the copy part for you?

Yes i have tried and i have mange to copy the content. Thanks

Now another way of doing what i want is to filter the copied content by not empty results in one of the columns.
I've tried recording a macro for that but this is the result (it made the filter but did not record de args)

sub filtrar
rem ----------------------------------------------------------------------
rem define variables
dim document as object
dim dispatcher as object
rem ----------------------------------------------------------------------
rem get access to the document
document = ThisComponent.CurrentController.Frame
dispatcher = createUnoService("com.sun.star.frame.DispatchHelper")

rem ----------------------------------------------------------------------
rem dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:DataFilterStandardFilter", "", 0, Array())

rem ----------------------------------------------------------------------
dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:FilterExecute", "", 0, Array())

rem ----------------------------------------------------------------------
rem dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:Undo", "", 0, Array())

rem ----------------------------------------------------------------------
dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:Save", "", 0, Array())

I would use something like this. You will have to edit it to suit your own requirements. It's untested.

Code: Select all

Sub Copy_Cells

Dim iEndCol As Integer
Dim dblEndRow As Double
Dim CellRangeAddress As New com.sun.star.table.CellRangeAddress
Dim CellAddress As New com.sun.star.table.CellAddress

oDoc = ThisComponent
oController= ThisComponent.getCurrentController()
oFirstSheet = oDoc.Sheets.getByIndex( 0 )

iEndCol = getLastUsedColumn(oFirstSheet)
dblEndRow = getLastUsedRow(oFirstSheet)

REM  Copy the row/columns from first sheet to a second sheet

oSecondSheet = oDoc.createInstance("com.sun.star.sheet.Spreadsheet")
oDoc.Sheets.insertByName("Working Sheet", oSecondSheet)

CellRangeAddress.Sheet = 0
CellRangeAddress.StartColumn = 0
CellRangeAddress.StartRow = 0
CellRangeAddress.EndColumn = iEndCol
CellRangeAddress.EndRow = dblEndRow

CellAddress.Sheet = 1
CellAddress.Column = 0
CellAddress.Row = 0

oFirstSheet.copyRange(CellAddress, CellRangeAddress)

End Sub

Try this

Code: Select all

Sub FilterRangeToCell(sDataAddress As String, sTargetAddress As String)
Dim oSheets As Variant
Dim oCellRangesByName As Variant
Dim oFilteredRange As Variant
Dim oTargetCellAddr As New com.sun.star.table.CellAddress
Dim oFilterDescriptor As Variant
Dim oFilterFields(0) As New com.sun.star.sheet.TableFilterField

	oSheets = ThisComponent.getSheets()
	oCellRangesByName = oSheets.getCellRangesByName(sDataAddress)
	oFilteredRange = oCellRangesByName(0)
	oCellRangesByName = oSheets.getCellRangesByName(sTargetAddress)
	oTargetCellAddr = oCellRangesByName(0).getCellByPosition(0, 0).getCellAddress()
	oCellRangesByName(0).Spreadsheet().getCellRangeByPosition(oTargetCellAddr.Column, oTargetCellAddr.Row, _
		oTargetCellAddr.Column + oFilteredRange.getColumns().getCount(), _
		oTargetCellAddr.Column + oFilteredRange.getRows().getCount()).ClearContents(-1)

	oFilterDescriptor = oFilteredRange.createFilterDescriptorByObject(oFilteredRange)
	oFilterDescriptor.OutputPosition = oTargetCellAddr
	oFilterDescriptor.CopyOutputData = True
	oFilterDescriptor.ContainsHeader = False	' If first row is header then set to TRUE
	
	oFilterFields(0).Operator = com.sun.star.sheet.FilterOperator.NOT_EMPTY
	oFilterFields(0).Field = 3	' Column E
	oFilterDescriptor.setFilterFields(oFilterFields)
	
	oFilteredRange.filter(oFilterDescriptor)
End Sub
Call it from your code like as

Code: Select all

Sub TestFilter
	FilterRangeToCell("encomenda.B3:F300","saida.A2")
End Sub
First param is address of source range and second - top-left cell of target range (BOTH AS STRING!)

First of all, tks a lot.

I've tried and for what i can understand (that's not a lot :) ) this code wilkl act as a filter as i want.

I've placed a form button on my encomenda sheet and call the Sub TestFilter with that.
I've got the following error

Basic sintaxe error (i'm translating from portuguese)
Espected: =.
and highlight "encomenda.B3:F300"

Thanks

Hmm... I also added a button on the sheet and assigned the same macro to it. Please check if the filtering works in this spreadsheet.

Ok.
I placed only your code separated in module 1, all the other code is in another sheet.
It is great.

Many thanks
