Former Member

Hello Friends,

I am using the interface "i_oi_spreadsheet" to take the excel sheets into internal table. The interface has good methods such as, "get sheets" and "set sheet", but I do not find a way to copy a sheet into internal table ?

Can any one please let me know how I can copy the sheet, once I have active/select it ?

Dear Thyagaraja Yenketeramdoo,

Please refer the document Copying data from Microsoft Excel to ABAP using OLE and instead of the method 'ActiveSheet' use the method 'Sheets' passing your sheet name. Just do the follwing change to the document -

Comment -

**** Refering the active worksheet of the application
***  GET PROPERTY OF gv_application 'ActiveSheet' = gv_activesheet.

Add -

* Refering the active worksheet of the application
  GET PROPERTY OF gv_application 'Sheets' = gv_activesheet
      #1 = 'Sheet2'.   " Here 'Sheet2' is the name of the sheet
     " that i want to open

  CALL METHOD OF gv_activesheet 'Select'.

Let the rest of the code be same. It will work fine.

Hope it helps. Thank you.

You can select the sheet you want to read with method select_sheet, with set_selection and insert_range you can indicate rows and columns,  and with method get_ranges_data select the data from selected sheet to an internal table (parameter contents).
