in reply to WIn32::OLE Excel Bold a Word and Wrap Text

After about 45 min of hunting through Microsoft's byzantine docs system, I found the object reference for Excel 2010. That gives the answer to question 1: $Sheet->Range("A1")->{'WrapText'} = "True"; (I was close).

But it's no help on question 2. It must have something to do with the value property of the range object, but the docs give no indication of how you reference something within the value.

    I seem to recall that you need to select the word, and then apply the bold to the selection. Hopefully that'll give you a clue where to look in the documentation.
