Need to export to excel, but need to have format in excel changed through Qlikview


I tried exporting my straigh table to excel and it works.

The problem is that the format it exports it to is not what I need.

So what I did was I created a little VS Script in Excel that would help get the format right a bit.


Range("A:A,H:H,I:I,JSmiley Frustrated,U:U,X:X,W:W,V:V,AJ:AJ,AK:AK,AL:AL,AM:AM").Select


End Sub


    With ActiveSheet.Range("A1", "R1")

        .HorizontalAlignment = xlGeneral

        .VerticalAlignment = xlBottom

        .WrapText = True

        .Orientation = 0

        .AddIndent = False

        .IndentLevel = 0

        .ShrinkToFit = False

        .ReadingOrder = xlContext

        .MergeCells = False

    End With

End Sub

my plan now is to use this script in Qlikview, so that with a click on a "BUTTON" I can do all that. without having to run the macro separetly in excel every time.

Before i go ahead an write anymore excel vb script, I need help to know if what I am doing is even possible.

Is there a way to do this?

or does anyone know of a short cut?

Thank you

Hi Mario,

yes it is possible.

In your QV macro, you will have to instantiate an Excel object, populate it with the desired content and apply the formatting.

If you plan to make this resource available to users via AccessPoint, you must consider the client's access method:

- if via IE plugin, the macro code will run in the client machine, so the user has to have Excel installed locally

- if via AJAX, the macro code will run in the server, so the server must have Excel

in either way you will have to pay attention to the destination folder, as the IE Plugin will see C: as the client's folder and the AJAX client will see C: as the server's folder.
