Re: Adding new worksheet to existing Excel workbook

in reply to Adding new workbook to existing excel

If you are in a Windows environment, you could use Win32::OLE to work with Excel. Adding a new worksheet can be done like this:

#___ ADD NEW WORKSHEET $workbook -> Worksheets -> Add({After => $workbook -> Worksheets($work +book -> Worksheets -> {Count})});
note: The line above has been taken from this great example, which you surely want to check out.

HTH, Rata

    I definitely concur with this.   Fire up the Excel application in this manner, and tell it what you want it to do.

    It took Microsoft a bunch of years to finally get OLE “really right,” and for computers to grow-up enough to easily handle it ... but ... they did and they did.   Do it that way.

[1nickt]: Corion HPs? ugh. I was impressed with Lenovo's gaming laptops; if it weren't for the red backlighting and general flashiness of the aesthetic, I might have gone with that. But all that was until I discovered that the Dell Precision line is still around.
[1nickt]: stevieb I don;t doubt that there's a difference. BestBuy has "consumer" models only on display.
[ambrus]: 1nickt: for some reason, these days they call every computer "gaming", even ones that gamers wouldn't buy. I've bought a keyboard that was labelled "gamer", despite that it has hard springs and seems to be way better for typing than for gaming;
[1nickt]: I though the gamers like that because they bash the keys so hard.
[ambrus]: and I've seen motherboards with no fast expansion ports for a video card but built-in hardware RAID advertized as "gaming".
LanX has a shaming laptop
[ambrus]: 1nickt: my impression is that the gamers like the softer springs, because fast reaction time is more important to them then feedback from keypresses to recognize typos.
[1nickt]: Ah, I see. I did read some gamer mag reviews, and yes, they lamented the fact that laptops with no discrete video card are sold as "gaming" hardware.
