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

Good afternoon. I have a CVS file I want to open up within Excel, sort the file (anywhere from 1000 - 6000 lines of data) based on Column 'F' and then delete all rows with specific data in Column 'F'. I am only to the point where I can open the file and that is it. The file will not sort for me. My code is short and simple, and does not work how I want it to work. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I will end up adding much more to this file after sorting, but I need to get past this point first. Here is my code;

#!perl use strict; use warnings; use Win32::OLE; use Win32::OLE qw(in with); use Win32::OLE::Variant; use Win32::OLE::Const 'Microsoft Excel'; use File::Copy; $Win32::OLE::Warn = 3; # Die on Errors. #Open the needed file from server location my $excelfile = '\\\\ServerName\\FolderName\\FolderName\\FolderName\\F +ileName.csv'; my $Excel = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Excel.Application') || Win32::OLE->new('Excel.Application', 'Quit'); #Open the file needed and activate the worksheet for manipulation ~ Tr +y to get a input box for entry of Branch name to open correct file... my $Book = $Excel->Workbooks->Open($excelfile); my $Sheet = $Book->Worksheets(1); $Sheet->Activate(); #Sort the file based on "Call Type" Column (F is column number 5, as A + is 0) $Excel->sort_data('WorksheetName',5,'DESC');

I have even attempted to use;

#Find Last Column and Row my $LastRow = $Sheet->UsedRange->Find({What=>"*", SearchDirection=>xlP +revious, SearchOrder=>xlByRows})->{Row}; my $LastCol = $Sheet->UsedRange->Find({What=>"*", SearchDirection=>xlP +revious, SearchOrder=>xlByColumns})->{Column};

to then try a loop type of statement. Yeah, that did not work either. Thank you for any suggestions offered I have a LONG way to go to my end results, and if I am having this many issues with a sort, I am worried about the rest of the requirments.
