XLS to CSV Process Hanging up
« on: February 26, 2014, 07:13:18 am »
Morning!! I am converting an xls document to csv document via winbatch. This is running with windows "Task Scheduler" every 15 min on Windows 7 64 bit.

The problem is after the script starts it hangs on this part and will not make the csv file. I have end process (via task manager) then manual run the script and everything works just fine. 

I moved this script from a windows XP pc and never had a problem but now it hangs and will not make the csv file. Can someone help me. I can upload the whole script if needed.

Code: [Select]
AddExtender("WWINT44I.DLL") ;-- Networking Extender
AddExtender("WWWSK44I.DLL") ;-- Winsocket Extender
AddExtender("WWPST44I.DLL") ;-- Postie Extender

dirChange(APP_PATH)
CURRENT_XLS_LIST = fileItemize("*.xls")
XLS_COUNT = itemCount(CURRENT_XLS_LIST,@TAB)

IF XLS_COUNT < 1 || CURRENT_XLS_LIST == ""
LOG(LOG_PATH,APP_NAME,"XLS CONVERT: ","NO FILE(S) TO PROCESS")
RETURN
ENDIF
;===================================
; QC WILL USE THIS OPTION
;===================================
IF XLS_COUNT > 0
LOG(LOG_PATH,APP_NAME,"XLS CONVERT: ", "STARTED")

FOR XX = 1 to XLS_COUNT
XLS_NAME     = itemExtract(XX,CURRENT_XLS_LIST,@TAB)
CSV_TEMP     = strCat(APP_PATH,"\TEMP_","%XX%_",CSV_NAME)
SOURCE_XLS = strCat(APP_PATH,"\",XLS_NAME)

ExcelWS = ObjectOpen("Excel.Application")
EWS = ExcelWS.Application
EWS.visible = @FALSE
EWS.UserControl = @FALSE
EWS.DisplayAlerts     = @FALSE
EWB = EWS.Workbooks
EWB.Open("%SOURCE_XLS%")
WBA = ExcelWS.ActiveWorkbook
WBA.SaveAs(::FileName="%CSV_TEMP%",FileFormat=6,CreateBackup=0)
TimeDelay(1)
ExcelWS.quit
ObjectClose(ExcelWS)
dropWild(ExcelWS)

LOG(LOG_PATH,APP_NAME,"XLS CONVERT: ",STRCAT("DELETED - ",strUpper(SOURCE_XLS)))
LOG(LOG_PATH,APP_NAME,"XLS CSV NAME: ",strUpper(CSV_TEMP))
fileDelete(strCat(APP_PATH,"\",XLS_NAME))
TimeDelay(1)
NEXT
ENDIF
RETURN

A hanging service can indicate that a possible error occurred and the error was trying to be displayed.
By default, services use a noninteractive window station and cannot interact with the user. : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms683502(v=vs.85).aspx

You will need to add IntControl 38 to the beginning of your script to tell it to run quietly: No error messages are displayed. If an error log filename is specified, then error messages will be written to that file. Consult the errorlog for errors or add DebugTrace for further debugging.

Ok I have a few notes.

Upon inspecting the trace file you will see that the script is failing with the error 1261 (COM/CLR: Exception) on the Excel Open method, the extended erro information written to the wwwbatch.ini section indicated the error is ErrorCode=9 (0x80020009):

It appears that Excel is unable to open "C:\EM940_OKFOODS_QC\ZM Hold Status Report Wk beg 12-30-13.xls".

I recommend adding code to your script to capture, and log the files that fail, for later debugging. See IntControl 73 (http://techsupt.winbatch.com/webcgi/webbatch.exe?techsupt/tsleft.web+Tutorials+Trap~Errors.txt)

Also, since this is running as service you should probably consider formatting the code as a native service, so that the script can properly handle service requests. We have a nice code sample in the help file that should help get you started: WinBatch.chm  topic Service Script.

My $0.02
I was getting the same message.
... try "Run as Administrator" and see if that resolves it.....
