Editing Cell Hyperlink Using Perl OLE.pm

    I know how to read an Excel cell's hyperlink value. What is the syntax to set or change a cell's hyperlink value? -docuSwear

      Here is a short example:
      #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Cwd; use Win32::OLE; use Win32::OLE::Const 'Microsoft Excel'; my $application = Win32::OLE->new("Excel.Application"); my $workbook = $application->Workbooks->Add; my $worksheet = $workbook->Worksheets(1); # Write a hyperlink my $range = $worksheet->Range("B2:B2"); $worksheet->Hyperlinks->Add({Anchor => $range, Address => "http://www.perl.com/"}); # Get current directory using Cwd.pm $workbook->SaveAs({FileName => cwd() . '/win32ole.xls'}); $workbook->Close; __END__

        OK so how DO you read an Excel cell's hyperlink value with Win32::OLE; That is what I'm stuck on. It seems to be in $range->{'Hyperlinks'}->{'Item'} but I can't read Item. tnks hal
