Merging cells in Excel using Excel Buffer

ArchyArchy Member Posts: 70
Hi all!

I have made a report, using Excel Buffer. But I need to merge cells in report header row. It seems, that is impossible to merge cells using excel buffer. :cry: I found in previous topics one way to do it:


The only way I can imagine is to complitely modify my report and do not use Excel Buffer table. But it is so complicated! :cry: May be someone could advise some other way? :oops:

    You should add new function to Excel Buffer table and call it after CreateSheet. This function will contain xlRange.Merge command

    I have added such a function - it works! \:D/
    But there is one problem - it merges cells, but do not center content in this new big cell. :-k Any ideas?

    You need to set correct property for that cell... try to record the macro and look into it.

    XlBook := XlApp.Workbooks.Open(FileName);

    XlSheet:= XlApp.ActiveSheet;
    XlSheet.Range('A1').HorizontalAlignment :=  -4108;

    It's possible,I remember I did long for one of the Project.

    The caption part they wanted to Merge. I guess I used some Automation Variables.
