in thread Using Win32::OLE and Excel - Tips and Tricks

For those of you who are interessted in the topic. I solved the problem by myself.

sysopen(FH, $file, O_WRONLY|O_EXCL) or die $!; works fine for me and it even works if the file is opened via a shared folder.

Finally I want to apologize for my offtopic-postings. I thougt the "fileInUse"-check would be possible with a Win32::OLE-function and because of that I posted here and did not create a new thread. I hope I will do better in future.

Best regards from sunny Germany.

[1nickt]: Ah, you got Linus' fave? With Ubuntu? 4k display?
[1nickt]: ( The 17" monster I just bought is for my wife, who doesn;t leave the house with it...)
[Corion]: 1nickt: No, I'm using it with Windows 10, but with the 4k display, yes. It's a very nice build IMO, and relatively sturdy. Also, it got 8 or 9 on the ifixit repair scale, which I consider good
[Corion]: ... especially as I expect to have to replace the battery set in two or three years' time
[1nickt]: Nice. So happy that Dells are still user-repairable. Unusual these days.
[1nickt]: I will certainly not be buying any more Macs.
[Corion]: 1nickt: Yeah, or at least, I hopoe so ;)
