in thread SQL vs Perl table comparing

Something like this should do:

use DBI; use Spreadsheet::WriteExcel; my $DB=DBI::connect( ... connection args for oracle DB ... ); my $ar = $DB->selectall_arrayref('select * from table'); my $XLWB = Spreadsheet::WriteExcel->new('table.xls'); my $XLWS = $XLWB->add_worksheet('table'); my $row = 0; $XLWS->write_row($row,0,$_) for @$ar;

    Spreadsheet::WriteExcel is superceeded by Excel::Writer::XLSX.

    But I think the poster wants to avoid putting all the data in a spreadsheet where they currently run macros to compare data 8-) ... and wants you to write a generic table compare utility
