Nearly every example I can find of using OLE to manipulate Excel spreadsheets shows me I can use the "Range" method to define a set of values I can get with an array reference:
use OLE; my $count; my $xl = CreateObject OLE 'Excel.Application' || die $!; my $workbook = $xl->Workbooks->Open("C:\\test.xls"); my $worksheet = $workbook->Worksheets(1); my $array = $worksheet->Range("A1:B10")->{'Value'}; for (@$array) { print ++$count, ":", join(",", @$_), "\n" } $xl->ActiveWorkbook->Close(0); $xl->Quit();
But I haven't seen any examples of reading the entire worksheet at once. How can I find out how many rows (and columns, less importantly) I'm dealing with?

I tried my $rows = $worksheet->Rows(); but that seems to return a reference to something that isn't a scalar.
