Export full object to excel

Hi Friends,

I am trying to export the chart from Qv to excel.

I am getting only few rows from the chart.how to export full table with all the values?

I am using the below macro

Call CopyToOpenExcelDocument("RECAP_CANAUX"     , "FullTable", 2, "RECAP_CANAUX"     , ExcelApp, "Values")

Sub CopyToOpenExcelDocument( CopyObject , CopyType, CopySheet, PasteRange, ExcelApp, PasteStyle)

    Set O_Curr_Object = ActiveDocument.GetSheetObject(CopyObject)


  Select Case CopyType

  case "Text"


    case "Image"

      O_Curr_Object.CopyBitmapToClipboard true

  case "Values"


    case "Table"      

      O_Curr_Object.CopyTableToClipboard false

    case "FullTable"      

      O_Curr_Object.CopyTableToClipboard true

    End Select




    Select Case PasteStyle

    case "Values"

      ExcelApp.ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(CopySheet).PasteSpecial 1

    case "Normal"

Re: Export full object to excel

I had had recently discussed several similar cases with another community member and we found several different reasons. So it's important that sheets and objects will activated each time, that WaitForIdle and Sleep statements are implemented to avoid that some parts will be execute before others are finished.

But this won't help in each case - sometimes there are conflicts with the clipboard by which sometimes content will be lost or even added - very strange but sometimes it happend. Helpful could be to clear the clipboard and/or the cache from qlikview:

Re: copy clipboard failed


or depending on the used RAM:

For Each o in GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\cimv2").ExecQuery("Select FreePhysicalMemory from Win32_OperatingSystem")

     memory_size = o.FreePhysicalMemory


if memory_size < 3000000 then


end if
