Convert between DateTime and Excel datesby madtoperl (Monk)
|on Jan 12, 2009 at 12:27 UTC||Need Help??|
madtoperl has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am having a excel file with two colums. one column is having intime of an employee and second column is having outtime of an employee with the format of DD/M/YYYY H:M:S i.e "12/1/2008 9:54:00 AM"
I am trying to extract date and time value from the microsoft excel file using perl.While extracting the value I got the output value of the particular column as 32793.442 instead of "2008:12:1 9:54:00". so I used the DateTime::Format::Excel module and I can able to extract the value of date i.e "2008:12:1".
I am not able to extract the value of time i.e "9:54:00" using DateTime::Format::Excel module. Could you please let me know if any module is available to get the time also. Orelse is there any way to extract the time value?
Orelse is there anyway to find the difference of time between the intime and outime column value? Please help me to solve this issue.
