[WD19] Print settings Excel via xlsDocument variable

Startbeitrag von Stefan Bentvelsen am 04.09.2015 09:06

Hi all,

I create in my software an Excel-file via xlsDocument, xlsColumn and xlsCell variables.
That works quit good. But is it also possible to set a number of print settings via this xlsDocument variable ?

I would like to set the print orientation to Landscape, the marges to Small and the scale to Fitting for one page.


Anyone ?

Hi Stefan,

This won't work with the standard xlsxxx functions as these create a standard application independent workbook file.
You'll need to do this using ole with Excel.

XLSApp is object dynamic
XLSApp = Excel.application

and so on and so on...

We have several Excel generators that even create Excel workbooks with pivot-tables in them.
Works great as long as the data sets to transfer via ole are not too big (

Hi Peter,

it took some time, but I've managed to make these settings in my genereted Excel-document. I've a little problem left. If I save the document via:


then a dialog is started by Excel that stated that the document already exist, if I want to overwrite it. Of course I want to overwrite it, but would like to save the document without dialog.

Do you know a way to save the document without dialog ?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Stefan

Try to put this line of code before of ":m_pautExcel>>ActiveWorkbook.......:"


and restore the alerts after the write of file.
So the complete code should be as:


Hope in this help

Re: [WD19] Print settings Excel (SOLVED !)

Hi Gianni,

thank you very much ! It works perfect.

This is my code now:

:m_pautExcel>>DisplayAlerts = False
:m_pautExcel>>DisplayAlerts = True

Re: [WD19] Print settings Excel

A little problem now is that the opening of the Excel-document after saving it, does not work anymore.

I use ShellExecute(lsName) for that and it worked before disabling the dialog and now it's not. It starts Excel, but directly closes it after that. From Windows Explorer I can doubleclick on the Excel document and it opens as expected. Why not via ShellExecute anymore ?

Re: [WD19] Print settings Excel (SOLVED TOO)

The problem was that Excel does quit in my program. But because the class (CExcel) I use for setting the print settings was not declared in a separate procedure, Excel.exe still was in memory in the background. On the toolbar it was gone. So putting the piece of code in a separate procedure solved the problem. The class is now deleted from memory when the procedure end is reached and ShellExecute works OK now.

May be it help someone in future.
