Problem with Spreadsheet::XLSX..by venkyPerl (Initiate)
|on Aug 06, 2012 at 10:23 UTC||Need Help??|
venkyPerl has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hi All, I am new to perl and I am stuck on what seems to be a very basic thing. I had to work on a issue which deals with reading of Excel files in Perl. Currently, the application uses Spreadsheet::ParseExcel and reads Excel files with xls etension only (97 2003 format) but going forward, we have to read files with xlsx extension also. I studied that for doing this, we have to use Spreadsheet::XLSX package. But it seems i did not install the package correctly. I downloaded the tar files, unzip them n copied to my perllib directory. and when i tried testing my perl script, it gave me the following error -
Though the file - Zlib.so is available in the directory - ../perldir/auto/Compress/Raw/Zlib/ with all the permissions.
I am doing this on Solaris 10 with Perl, v5.8.4.
Please let me know where am I wrong and how to work on this. Quick reply is appreciated.
Thank you everyone.
