I am doing excel automation using C++. I have also embedded the excel window in my own window.

Before displaying the Excel i have changed the fontStyle of each cell  using

m_pXlFont = m_pXlRange->Font;

m_pXlFont->Name = _T("Arial");

m_pXlFont->FontStyle = _T("Bold Italic");

Excel takes this font and displays the data.

Now i go in excel that change text in few cells and also change the fontStyle.

After that i want to retrieve the new fontstyle and text like this...

 

Excel::_WorksheetPtr pSheet = m_pXlApp->ActiveSheet;

Excel::RangePtr pRange = pSheet->Cells;

Excel::RangePtr pBeginRange;

Excel::FontPtr
pXlFont;

std::ofstream myfile ("c:\\example.txt");

 

for (long r = 1; r < numRowsData; r++)

{

for (short c = 1 ; c < numColsData; c++) {

pBeginRange = pRange->Item[r][c];

pXlFont = pBeginRange->Font;

_variant_t bfont = m_pXlFont->FontStyle;

_bstr_t b =bfont;

TCHAR* lpszText2 = _com_util::ConvertBSTRToString(b);

_bstr_t cellValue = pRange->Item[r][c];

TCHAR* lpszText4 = _com_util::ConvertBSTRToString(cellValue);

myfile << r << " " << c << " " << lpszText3 << " " << lpszText4 << std::endl;

 

}

}

myfile.close();

I get the changed text but i do not the changed fontstyle. The FonstStyle is same as before...i.e. what i had set programatically.

what wrong i am doing here?

You have made a mistake here

pXlFont = pBeginRange->Font;

_variant_t bfont = m_pXlFont->FontStyle;

correct it to read

pXlFont = pBeginRange->Font;

_variant_t bfont = pXlFont->FontStyle;


Cheers
