Solved!
Go to solution

Hello everyone, I hope you guyz are doing well. I need your help, I want to search some integer values which maybe 100 rows and store in one array for further uses. I am confused which one algorithm is working faster in this scenario. If any recommendation or someone already did that type of searching then please help in this problem. Thanks to all.

For clarity:
Do you want to take up to one hundred lines from an Excel file and then search in this data?

If yes, you need Excel get data vi. Faster will be to read all rows and then work with array in memory

Hi sam,

 

can you explain the term "excel file"? What kind of file are you talking about? (I hope it's not the Excel EXE… :D)

 

I am confused which one algorithm is working faster in this scenario.

Do you expect a real problem with searching integers in just 100 rows?

 

Best regards,

Hi sam,

 

did you already tried the snippet you found in that other thread?

It does (mostly) what you need…

 

 

For example in header row are some integer and if i found the same string then whole selected string column will stored in another array

Don't mix up "integers" and "strings".

Just read the header row, search your string/integer value/whatever: if found, you can read the whole column from Excel.

 

And please stop posting the very same question in a lot of threads: duplicate posts aren't helpful for you nor other people!

Best regards,
GerdW

It seems that you are trying to guess how to combine functions, and you do not understand what each function does.
