in reply to OLE, Excel, and PERL

When you add a little error checking, what happens?

use strict; use Win32::OLE qw(in with); use Win32::OLE::Const 'Microsoft Excel'; $Win32::OLE::Warn = 3; # Die on Errors. my $excelfile = 'book1.xls'; my $Excel = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Excel.Application') || Win32::OLE->new('Excel.Application', 'Quit') || die Win32::OLE->LastError(); $Excel->{DisplayAlerts}=0; my $Book = $Excel->Workbooks->Open($excelfile) or die Win32::OLE->Last +Error(); print Win32::OLE->LastError();

And of course, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the Tutorial
