in reply to Spreadsheet::XLSX returning &lt; &gt; and &amp; instead of < > &

Try $cell->value() which should be the formatted value of the cell. $cell->{Val} is equivalent to $cell->unformatted(). I'm not sure there will be a difference here...but worth a try.

    Thanks for the suggestion. There is no difference between the two. Both return &gt; which leads me to believe that's how MSFT is storing it in the xlsx spreadsheets.
