( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I haven't done it myself, but the Win32::Ole documentation looks quite simple (simple of course, if you know the Excel "object model")...

The MSDN has some documentation on the Excel object model, as has the Office Development Kit, something you might want to buy if you do Office development on a regular basis...

Some code from the top of my head - I haven't done Excel automation for a looong time ... Note that you can take the method and object names from any VB code, as both Perl and VB call through the IDispatch methods of Excel.

$ex = Win32::OLE->new('Excel.Application') or die "oops\n"; $ex->Worksheets(0)->Cells(0,0) = "Hello world";

I'm not sure about the parameters you have to pass to the Cells function - some VB sample code should be easy to port though.
