esr has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am not new to Perl but I am new to the use of the Win32::OLE morass. I have managed to get some basic things to work in opening an Excel spreadsheet etc. but have not yet found how to get the Excel spreadsheet to open and display on the screen. What I am trying to accomplish is to do some preliminary things from the Perl script, display the spreadsheet for manual editing, then return to the Perl script to read and process the spreadsheet data. I seem to be able to display the spreadsheet on the screen by going to the Windows Explorer and clicking on the file but I would like to do it from the Perl script.
