Re^3: Installing Template::Toolkit on Windows
in thread Installing Template::Toolkit on Windows
This was a few years back and I still regard myself as a Perl novice, so it's quite conceivable that I blundered in some way and should have been able to get SP working with Excel. When I next get to the stage of wanting to experiment rather than wanting something that works (and that's a continuum rather than a boolean), I'll try SP again.
Update 3/3/13: I've just tried SP & it seems to work fine. It's still early days, but I ran some stuff that did fairly esoteric Excel stuff without a problem.
