in thread Spreadsheet::WriteExcel with CGI

i'm getting an error for $! as "Resource temporarily Unavailable". I'm trying to write to a file using Spreadsheet::WriteExcel's write(). The $worksheet object is defined at the top of the file, but when I hit the below while loop, it won't write() and puts RTU in the $! variable.

I don't think it's a scoping issue because the $worksheet object is defined well before the while loop. My query for the information that needs to go into the doesn't choke, so I'm not writing with uninitialized variables. Would appreciate your opinion.

# At top of file my $workbook = Spreadsheet::WriteExcel->new($target); my $worksheet = $workbook->add_worksheet("Ventus_Networks_Invoice"); my $row = 0; ... # This is the header row, that prints if( $qrv > 0 ) { my $mid_header = $workbook->add_format(%oUpper,%iLeft,%iRight,%greybg,%fBold,%iLower); my $mid_theader= $workbook->add_format(%oUpper,%iLeft,%iRight,%greybg,%fBold,%iLower,%f +Twrap); $worksheet->write($row,0,'Site Name',$workbook->add_format(%oUpper,%oLeft,%iLower,%iRight,%greybg,%fB +old)); ... # After headers are printed, print data while(my @i = $sth_site->fetchrow_array() ){ $worksheet->write($row,0,$i[1], $workbook->add_format(%oLeft,%iRight,%iLower)); # Location ID # This is where $! is set to "Resource Temporarily Unavailable

    I'm not all that familiar with the internal workings of S::WE, but that seems very odd. Are you sure the write() call is actually failing? I apologize if that's obvious, but I see from the documentation that it returns 0 on success, and your snippet doesn't include code that reports the error, so it seemed worth checking. Also, I haven't any other ideas at all, unless there's some bizarre issue with the filesystem your temp directory is on—I don't think I've ever seen code that produced that particular error. :-\
