No. Why, because if this was the case we would expect to see crashes occurring everywhere and all the time. The only way to identify what is happening is to add some debug code to your application so you capture more information prior to the crashes occurring.
Thanks for your reply Richard, but the problem is that the AccessViolationExceptionvery rarely ever occurs when the application is running within the VS development environment, and furthermore it does not occur on all client computers. The only common factors I have been able to establish is that (1) the user has had the program running for several hours, and (2) the user has just switched back to my application after using some other program.
I have come to this forum in the hope that anyone who may have experienced similar errors may give me some clue as to what to look for. I have literally spent over one hundred hours trying to debug this issue.
You have my sympathy, but unfortunately the only way to track this sort of error is to add logging and debugging code to your application. I worked in technical support for many years and often saw problems such as you describe, and yes, they were extremely difficult to diagnose.
I'm not quite sure if the Worksheet.Paste method does what you want. It will copy text from the clipboard to the specified (or current) selection (see Worksheet.Paste Method[^]). Setting the second parameter to TRUE will not copy the text but place a link. So if you have copied the text from the file to the clipboard, you may use this function but should pass FALSE as second parameter (or COleVariant((long)DISP_E_PARAMNOTFOUND, VT_ERROR) as optional value which uses the default).
However, the first (also optional parameter) is a range object. Just declare the object, assign the return value of GetRange() and pass it to Paste():
Range objRange = objSheet.GetRange(COleVariant(TEXT("A1")),COleVariant(TEXT("M34")));
I am at home now but from what I remember when I tried to build the code with VISUAL C++ 6.0 I got a build error saying cannot convert paramter 1 from const struct &VARIANT to class Range The documentation says it accepts a range object as the first parm
but the prototype for the code is Paste(const &VARIANT,
WorkSheet.GetRange() returns a LPDISPATCH which can be assigned to a Range object. You can use the LPDISPATCH returned by GetRange() or access the underlying IDispatch pointer of an existing Range object using the LPDISPATCH() operator to create the required variant:
vtRng.vt = VT_DISPATCH;
// Assign LPDISPATCH returned by GetRange()
vtRng.pdispVal = objSheet.GetRange(COleVariant(TEXT("A1")),COleVariant(TEXT("M34")));
// Alternatively, access the IDispatch pointer of an existing Range object
// vtRng.pdispVal = objRange;
I keep pointing you to MSDN and various related pieces of documentation, but you keep coming back here asking for the same thing. Try using the tools at your disposal (Google, Bing etc) to find what you are looking for.
One of these days I'm going to think of a really clever signature.
