in thread Using Win32::OLE and Excel - Tips and Tricks

In fact, my problem is more about Excel rather than perl (I think).
I was wondering if there is an option so when my perl program update a value in a cell I can see it immediately in Excel (the file is always open on my desktop)

    If its always open on your desktop, make sure that you are only using the current, open instance of Excel, set your worksheet=ActiveSheet and don't close the worksheet or workbook before terminating your script.
    my $Excel = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Excel.Application')|| die "You gotta have it open first!!\n"; my $Sheet = $Excel->{ActiveSheet};

    C-.
