G'day squarez,

Welcome to the monastery.

I can't actually find a module called WriteExcel on CPAN. There's a lot with WriteExcel in the name: I'm going to guess you're using Spreadsheet::WriteExcel.

This module has a method called write_row() whose documentation has:

"... This is useful for converting the results of a database query into an Excel worksheet. ..."

You should be able to modify your code to something like (untested):

while (my @res = $sth->fetchrow_array()) { @res = map { defined ? $_ : '' } @res; $worksheet->write_row($i, 0, [@res]); $i++; }

I also noted Excel::Writer::XLSX has a method with the same name which appears to work the same (from a coding perspective).

Even if you're using a different module, you may still find the technique applicable. If not, let us know what you are using.
