in reply to Using Win32::OLE and Excel - Tips and Tricks

this tutorial has being my foundation on the project at work thank you, since that said, I am a newbie in Win32::OLE I got this problem I need to copy a cell and cant do it this is the code I am using:
$Sheet->Range('A17')->Select(); $Sheet->Selection->Copy('A17'); $Sheet->Range('B15')->Select(); $Sheet->ActiveSheet->Paste();
but that did not work what is wrong? I take this from the VBA in the macro.
Oh. yes I am using only WIN32::OLE

    This piece of code doesn't work because "Selection" is a method of the parent Excel application, not the sheet.

    So if you had, in the beginning of your code:

    my $XcelApp = Win32::OLE->new( 'Excel.Application' );

    Then the second line in your post should go:

[stevieb]: Cow1337killr yeah, you're probably right. I have communicated to the author directly, and here on his threads. It's a tremenous setup. With Devel::Camelcadedb , you get full perl debug support too
