( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I am lost in how to "variablize" this.

Working code:

use strict; use Spreadsheet::WriteExcel; my $workbook = Spreadsheet::WriteExcel->new("demo.xls"); my $worksheet_BOB = $workbook->add_worksheet('BOB'); my $worksheet_SUE = $workbook->add_worksheet('SUE'); $worksheet_BOB->write('A2', "Bob is here"); $worksheet_SUE->write('A2', "Sue is here"); __END__

What I want do do is make the _BOB a variable and loop through and array to build the worksheets. and then be able to reference the writes with the variable names.Below may not be syntactically correct but functional what I want to do

use strict; use Spreadsheet::WriteExcel; my $workbook = Spreadsheet::WriteExcel->new("demo.xls"); my @PEOPLE = ("BOB" , "SUE", "JOHN" ); foreach (@PEOPLE) { my $worksheet_$_ = $workbook->add_worksheet('$_'); } $NAME = "BOB" $worksheet_$NAME->write('A2', "$NAME is here"); $NAME= "SUE" $worksheet_$NAME->write('A2', "$NAME is here"); __END__
