In general, error checking on open -- open ($FH "<", $filename) or die "Can't open $filename, $!";Note1 for one possible example -- and using strict and warnings are almost certain to be very helpful when you're experimenting in the way you describe..

I don't use Win32::OLE in the manner you are (and in fact, rarely in any fashion), so I have to ask: Are you sure the message to the console came from Word? I suspect it more likely came from Win32::OLE (or, less likely) from Perl itself).

Update: Note1 In a msg, davies points out (++) that the open illustrated in para 1 is a generalized form may be confusing in context. I agree, and should have phrased it to make clear that it is probably not applicable to file opens performed by/with Win32::OLE or the like.

    Hi, I'm not sure where the message came from, but there was a code returned which I googled to find it was a Windows code for missing a file. Then I noticed that there was some helpfully written words that said the same thing - I'm guessing that Win32::OLE

    If I want to improve, I need to start using strict, that's for sure.

      Here's another candidate for your self-improvement:
      quote the message(s), verbatim.
      It'll help us decipher the issue(s).
