in reply to Copy paste rows in excel

Well, i wrote the following and it worked on my system.
use Win32::OLE; my $excelfile = 'E:\\perl scripts\\abc.xls'; my $Excel = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Excel.Application') || Win32::OLE->new('Excel.Application', 'Quit'); $Excel->{'Visible'} = 1; my $Book = $Excel->Workbooks->Open($excelfile); my $Sheet = $Book->Worksheets("Sheet1"); $Sheet->Activate(); #------Here's what u were looking for $Sheet->range('A4')->copy(); $Sheet->range('B1')->Select(); $Sheet->paste();
With what I've learnt using excel<->perl, i've found that one should write the code
as one would work manually with excel (step by step), that helps with perl/excel.
That's my feeling anyway!

    Thanks Raghu for the help. With this piece of code copy operation is working for me as well.
    One more clarification:
    Is there any way in which we can copy one complete row and paste it, as here it just picks the cell A4 and copies to cell B1.
      As I said, think how you'll do it manually and make perl do it.
      $Sheet->rows('4:4')->copy(); $Sheet->rows('15:15')->Select(); $Sheet->paste();
      The above code copies 4th row cells to 15th row cells.
        Hi I am trying the same code to copy values of one row of excel into another, but getting error "Can't locate object method "GetActiveObject" via package "Win32::OLE" (perhaps you forgot to load "Win32::OLE"?) at C:\Users\ssoni\Desktop\ line 2." could you please help what should be done in the case?
        Thanks again Raghu. Its working :)
