The test.xlsx file isn't in a zip file. I thought it was going to create a new file called test.xlsx, but didn't.
Sorry -- confusion. The 'new' in this context doesn't mean it's going to *create* a file. It's creating a new context in order read one of your files that already exists.
Next, I'm not sure
my $excel = Spreadsheet::XLSX -> new ('test.xlsx');
is correct. I would have expected
my $excel = Spreadsheet::XLSX->new ('test.xlsx');
to be better. Does your script produce any warnings when you run it?
You need to get to the point where you're able to open a file in your current directory before we can proceed.
