Hi,

I am using ruby ruby 1.8.6 and spreadsheet (0.6.4).
I am trying to oarse an excel file.
My code is like :

require 'rubygems'
require 'spreadsheet'
require 'parseexcel'
equire 'parseexcel/parseexcel'
require 'parseexcel/parser'

  workbook = 

Spreadsheet::ParseExcel.parse(“public/downloads/commissions/google/test.xls”)
worksheet = workbook.worksheet(0)

    worksheet.each { |row|
            puts row.at(0).to_s

    }

But it prints ‘nil’. I have data in my excel file.

Could you please help me?

Thanks,
Anu

Hi,

Thanks for the response.
My excel file has data in it. When i give row.inspect i get the
following :
#<Spreadsheet::Excel::Row:0xffffffdbd3f67a
@worksheet=#Spreadsheet::Excel::Worksheet:0xb70d75fc @height=
@hidden=false @default_format= @outline_level=0 @formats= @idx=0 []>

But it doesn’t print anything inside the loop
Any idea?

Thanks,
Anu

nil usually means empty rows. Also each row is an array of cells. You
could use inspect instead of to_s to see what’s really there. This is
how I get data from a spreadsheet:

ws.each { |row|
if row != nil
#
# cycle over each cell in this row if it’s not an empty row
#
row.each { |cell|
if cell != nil
contents = cell.to_s(‘latin1’)
puts(“Cell Contents: #{contents}\n”)
end
}
end
}
