Re: CSV to Excel (where I keep the excel formula)

in reply to CSV to Excel (where I keep the excel formula)

if you want to do it with a one-liner (or look at the code to do it in a program), get excelPerl from ExcelPerl 0.12 released and try something like

Update: Sorry, I misread you. The code for ExcelPerl would be (if your col is number 2): -ane "$C->[2]->{FormulaLocal} .= '+99'" -f test.xls

If you have got a headline in the first row, just skip it with the additional parameter -h=1

Code to convert excel to csv with formulas (doesn't match the question):

perl -begin "use Text::CSV_XS; $csv = Text::CSV_XS->new( +{ binary => 1 } )" -ane "$csv->combine( map { $_->{FormulaLocal} } @C +); print $csv->string, $/" -f test.xls

which produces something like

a,b,a+b 1,4,=A2+B2 2,5,=A3+B3 3,2,=A4+B4 4,1,=A5+B5 5,5,=A6+B6

Best regards,
perl -e "s>>*F>e=>y)\*martinF)stronat)=>print,print v8."
