Is it possible to print off Exel and Word documents in perl.
Have a look at Cacharbe's answer to Win32::OLE and Excel and the Web. You will have to print from Excel rather than copying the file to a printer and that printer will have to be installed on the computer running Excel. The classic advice is to record a macro that prints the file and then convert that macro to Perl, but be aware that the recorded macro won't be good VBA and that simply transliterating it won't give you good Perl. If you can't print from Excel, then that's the first thing you need to fix.
