in thread WIN32::OLE Excel Pivot Table Grief

The translated VB macro is below. However, this does not work when executed from perl, the totals/subtotals are not disabled. That's why I'm confussed. The VB version works, but the perl version does not...
$_app_object->ActiveSheet->PivotTables('PivotTable1')->PivotFields +('a')->{Subtotals} = [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0];

    I think the error is earlier. If you add the following lines to your code, it will tell you where:

    use Win32::OLE::Const 'Microsoft Excel'; # instead of the constants Win32::OLE->Option( Warn => 3 );

    something seems to be wrong at CreatePivotTable

    $_app_object->ActiveWorkbook->PivotCaches->Add({SourceType => xlDa +tabase, SourceData => 'Sheet1!R1C1:R4C3'})->CreatePivotTable({TableDe +stination => 'Sheet1!R8C3', TableName => 'PivotTable1', DefaultVersio +n => xlPivotTableVersion10});

    Best regards,
    perl -e "s>>*F>e=>y)\*martinF)stronat)=>print,print v8."

      Thanks for taking the time to help! I added the lines you suggested. There was one warning that I've fixed, but now I still get the same problem. I have made no changes to the other line you were suspecting. The error is
      OLE exception from "Microsoft Office Excel": Unable to set the Subtotals property of the PivotField class Win32::OLE(0.1704) error 0x80020009: "Exception occurred" in PROPERTYPUT "Subtotals" at c:\bin\ line 54
      The pivot table code is reduced to
      $_app_object->ActiveWorkbook->PivotCaches->Add({SourceType => xlDataba +se, SourceData => 'Sheet1!R1C1:R4C3'})->CreatePivotTable({TableDestin +ation => 'Sheet1!R8C3', TableName => 'PivotTable1', DefaultVersion => + xlPivotTableVersion10}); $_app_object->ActiveSheet->PivotTables('PivotTable1')->AddDataField +($_app_object->ActiveSheet->PivotTables('PivotTable1')->PivotFields(' +a') ); $_app_object->ActiveSheet->PivotTables('PivotTable1')->PivotFields( +'a')->{Orientation} = xlRowField; $_app_object->ActiveSheet->PivotTables('PivotTable1')->PivotFields( +'a')->{Position} = 1; $_app_object->ActiveSheet->PivotTables('PivotTable1')->PivotFields( +'b')->{Orientation} = xlRowField; $_app_object->ActiveSheet->PivotTables('PivotTable1')->PivotFields( +'b')->{Position} = 2; $_app_object->ActiveSheet->PivotTables('PivotTable1')->PivotFields( +'a')->{Subtotals} = [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0];
        $_app_object->ActiveSheet->PivotTables('PivotTable1')->PivotFields('a' +)->SetProperty( "Subtotals", 1, 0 );
