( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have a script which queries a mysql 5.5 database which is working well. However, the output is more rigid than I would like - my output is informing a Spreadsheet::WriteExcel based report. What I would like is to assign each member of each row a variable so I can place the data in the spreadsheet cell of my choosing. Here's the code snippet I am using:
###################################################################### +############# # # Account Contacts Tab # use strict; use warnings; use DBI; use DBD::mysql; use Spreadsheet::WriteExcel; our $acnse; our $emc; my $worksheet1 = $workbook->add_worksheet('Contacts'); my $acnse = $dbh->prepare("SELECT a.`function`, b.`fname`,b.`lname`, b +.`email`, b.`ophone`, b.`mobile`, b.`loffice` FROM `acct` a, `acnse` +b WHERE a.`cid` ='BBYPRD' AND a.`eid` = b.`eid` order by function;"); $acnse->execute or die $acnse->errstr; my $row = 7; my $col = 1; $worksheet1->write_row($row++,$col,['Role','First Name','Last Name','E +mail', 'Office Phone', 'Cell', 'Office'], $format_body1); while(my @data = $acnse ->fetchrow_array) { $worksheet1->write_row($row++,$col,\@data); } $worksheet1->set_column(6, 2, 15); $worksheet1->set_column(6, 3, 15); $worksheet1->set_column(6, 4, 30); $worksheet1->set_column(6, 5, 20); $worksheet1->set_column(6, 6, 20); $worksheet1->set_column(6, 7, 25); my $emc = $dbh->prepare("SELECT a.`function`, b.`fname`, b.`lname`, b. +`email`, b.`ophone`, b.`cphone`, b.`geo` FROM `acct` a, `emc` b WHERE + a.`cid` ='BBYPRD' AND b.`eid` = a.`eid` order by function;"); $emc->execute or die $emc->errstr; my $row = 21; my $col = 1; $worksheet1->write_row($row++,$col,['Role','First Name','Last Name +','Email', 'Office Phone', 'Cell', 'Office'], $format_body1); while(my @data = $emc ->fetchrow_array) { $worksheet1->write_row($row++,$col,\@data); } $worksheet1->write (0, 0, $acct, $format_title); $worksheet1->write (0, 7, $ymd, $format_body); $worksheet1->write (1, 0, 'Contact Report', $format_title3); $worksheet1->write (5, 0, 'Accenture Contacts', $format_title3 +); $worksheet1->write (20, 0, 'EMC Contacts', $format_title3);
That works but the output includes the column header information and iterates one row at a time:
Contacts Role First Name Last Name Email Office Phone Cell + Office *** xxxxx xxxxx xxxxxx 999-999-9999 Somwhere *** xxxxx xxxxx xxxxxx 999-999-9999 Somwhere *** xxxxx xxxxx xxxxxx 999-999-9999 Somwhere *** xxxxx xxxxx xxxxxx 999-999-9999 Somwhere *** xxxxx xxxxx xxxxxx 999-999-9999 Somwhere
I would prefer to capture the output into an array and use the array_name[0] to identify the output members and write them to the spreadsheet with Spreadsheet::WriteExcel format strings. Thanks in advance for your wisdom.
