Problem adding long string to excel cellby Anchor (Novice)
|on Apr 14, 2010 at 19:58 UTC||Need Help??|
Anchor has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hello, I am hoping someone can help me out. I searched the web for an answer but cannot find one.
My program does some processing and creates an excel log file. Sometimes it has to put data (a string) in a cell that is 1000 characters long. But when the code tries to put the long string into the cell, I get the following error:
Win32::OLE(0.1403) error 0x80020009: "Exception occurred" in PROPERTYPUT "Value" at ProcessData.pl line 709
And when I check the excel doc after the processing is done the really long strings that caused the exceptions where not inserted into cells that they were suppose to get inserted into. I'm not doing anything special but I am thinking that I might have to. The problem is only when Excel 2003 is installed. If I run the same code on a machine with Excel 2007 installed everything works fine. Here is the code that puts the string into the excel file.
I know a 1000 character length string can go into a cell through the UI but its not working through my perl code. Is there something I need to do before putting the 1000 character string into the cell?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
