As a side note, please consult Q257757, which gives some good reasons to not run Office programs behind the scenes on a non-interactive session, like a CGI script. It points you at the OWC (Office Web Componants) which can be used for similar effect. Also consider Spreadsheet::WriteExcel, which will let you produce Excel files without the bloat of Excel itself.

I do a lot of Excel automation in interactive mode, but doing so in a CGI is risky and not advisable.

[atcroft]: Lady_Aleena: I am not that far ahead of you. (I wrote a simple bundle module, that just installs a set of other modules, so effectively no CPAN experience either.)
[atcroft]: Lady_Aleena: By the way, I did look up another module (Tk), to see how it referred to other modules, and it used the L<module_name> POD linking, whereas the one I ran into today had hard-coded l<text|url> links.
