Origin Ver. and Service Release (Select Help-->About Origin): 9.1
Operating System: winxp

while being an absolute beginner isn't very helpful at all, I am still taken aback how I can't even get simple tutorial copies to work:

beginner project: from an open excel sheet, copy a range of strings into a new book in a new origin project. then run a labtalk script, save and exit.

While I can select my excel range, I cannot assign it to a variable that I can then insert into the origin range.

I also just cannot get the labtalk script to run with what I think should work.

Dim org As Origin.Application
Dim orgWkBk As Origin.WorksheetPage
Dim orgWks As Origin.Worksheet
Dim strPathName As Variant
Dim rangeexcel As Excel.range
Dim rangeori As Origin.DataRange

sheetname = ActiveSheet.Name
Range("c3", ActiveSheet.Range("c3").End(xlDown)).Select

' Create the Origin COM object, folder wkbk sheet and column works fine
Set org = New Origin.Application
org.Execute ("sec -poc 1.5")
org.RootFolder.Folders.Add("Folder1").Activate 'add new folder
Set orgWkBk = org.WorksheetPages.Add
Set orgWks = orgWkBk.Layers(0)

Set rangeori = Wks.NewDataRange(0, 1)
rangeori.SetData = (ActiveSheet.range("c3", ActiveSheet.range("c3").End(xlDown)).Select)

org.Execute (name_of_custom_labtalkscript)

'saving also works
strPathName = Application.GetSaveAsFilename(sheetname, "Project files (*.OPJ),*.OPJ", 0)
org.Save (strPathName)
org.Execute ("sec -poc 1.5")

End Sub

Hi Psoso,

Can you try the following script to set excel range to a variable and copy that into Origin worksheet. Please make sure [Book1]Sheet1 exists in Origin :

    Set rngDataAndParam = ActiveSheet.Range("c3", ActiveSheet.Range("c3").End(xlDown))
    pws = app.PutWorksheet("[Book1]Sheet1", rngDataAndParam.Value)

thank you. with the additional help of some of the examples in the /SAMPLES folder I think I have ranges figured out.
I still don't understand the limitations of the execute command.
In origin I have made a custom labtalk script many lines long (variable definitions, IFs and loops etc.) and would like to start it via vba.
Documentation makes it sound like it should work like:
app.Execute (name_of_custom_labtalkscript).
However, I can only get single x-functions to work this way.
I just assumed it would work similar to "" ?
