++ wonderful tutorial. I've been using much of this functionality for some time, but I can slick a few snips from you to clean up a few lines here and there. And thanks for pointing out the DisplayAlerts property. Man, there's a great deal of hubbub in that object. =)

    my $Book = $Excel->Workbooks->Open("$EXCELFILE", TRUE);

[Corion]: Hi marto ;)
[Corion]: I hope you're well ;)
[marto]: running late today, get to work and people are just sitting around. "can't delete file, quota exceeded"
[Corion]: marto: Oy :-/
[Corion]: Ah, it's only "quota exceeded", not "filesystem full", so it's "merely" an administrative act to up the FS quota resp. inode quota
[Corion]: I've been on databases where I couldn't drop a table or delete rows because the DB was full. Not so much fun...
[marto]: meh, the admins are lazy, I just piped null to some old large log files, problem solved
