Return Value

Gets the specified range in the open workbook by using numeric range coordinates in R1C1 range notation.

var value = Ewa.Sheet.getRange(firstRow, firstColumn, rowCount, columnCount);


The initial row position of the range.


The initial column position of the range.


The number of rows to include in the range.


The number of columns to include in the range.

The Ewa.Sheet.getRange method returns a range specified as the initial row and column positions and the number of rows and columns to include in the range.

Note Note

Ewa.Sheet.getRange cannot generate a range on a chart sheet.

The following code example shows how to add a button to the page and then adds code to the button onClick event that gets a specific range from the active sheet. The code then gets the values within the range and displays them in an alert message.

<script type="text/javascript">
var ewa = null;
// Add event handler for onload event.
if (window.attachEvent) 
    window.attachEvent("onload", ewaOmPageLoad);    
    window.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", ewaOmPageLoad, false); 

// Add event handler for applicationReady event.
function ewaOmPageLoad() 

function getEwa()
    // Get a reference to the Excel Services Web Part.
    ewa = Ewa.EwaControl.getInstances().getItem(0);                                       

function getRangeFromSheetButton()
    // Get range "B2:C5" from the active sheet.
    var range = ewa.getActiveWorkbook().getActiveSheet().getRange(1,1,4,2);
    // Get values from range.

function getRangeValues(asyncResult)
    // Get the value from asyncResult if the asynchronous operation was successful.
    if (asyncResult.getCode() == 0)
        // Get range from user context.
        var range = asyncResult.getUserContext();
        // Get the array of range values from asyncResult.
        var values = asyncResult.getReturnValue();
        // Display range coordinates in A1 notation and associated values.
        var output = "Values from range" + range.getAddressA1() + "\n";
        output = output + "********\n";
        // Loop through the array of range values.
        for (var i = 0; i < values.length; i++)
           for (var j = 0; j < values[i].length; j++)
                output= output + values[i][j] + '\n';
        output = output + "********";

        // Display each value in the array returned by getValuesAsync.
         alert('Operation failed with error message ' + asyncResult.getDescription() + '.');

<input type="button" id="GetRange" value="Get Range" onclick="getRangeFromSheetButton()" />
