in reply to OLE, Excel, and PERL

When you add a little error checking, what happens?

use strict; use Win32::OLE qw(in with); use Win32::OLE::Const 'Microsoft Excel'; $Win32::OLE::Warn = 3; # Die on Errors. my $excelfile = 'book1.xls'; my $Excel = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Excel.Application') || Win32::OLE->new('Excel.Application', 'Quit') || die Win32::OLE->LastError(); $Excel->{DisplayAlerts}=0; my $Book = $Excel->Workbooks->Open($excelfile) or die Win32::OLE->Last +Error(); print Win32::OLE->LastError();

And of course, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the Tutorial

[marioroy]: why do some posters not know to provide a good SSCCE? Nested loops?
[Corion]: marioroy: Producing good SSCCE is an acquired skill :) You have to produce bad SSCCEs for a long time until you get good. And when you get good, you don't need them that much anymore because you simply isolate the problem and then solve it ;)
[marioroy]: ... and kcott is able to provide something. Amazing.
[hippo]: kcott's analysis consistently impresses.
