Anytime I am trying to use perl and OLE to access M$ products, I start by creating a macro that does exactly what I want the perl program to do. Then I start translating the macro into perl. I've been considering creating a translator but I just never seem to have the time. Most of the work of translating it can be done with some regular expressions. It's the odd situations that the translator is actually required for.

and the contents of mymacro.pl are:
Not all macros will translate this easily though.
