Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi All,
while invoking Excel through perl I am getting the following error?? Any ideas ? Please let me know.

Win32::OLE(0.1501) error 0x800401f3: "Invalid class string" at c:\test1.cgi line 21
eval {...} called at c:\test1.cgi line 21

*** I am invoking the following in cgi
use strict; use CGI qw(:standard); use Cwd; use Win32::OLE; use Win32::OLE qw(in with); $Win32::OLE::Warn = 3; my $application = Win32::OLE->new('Excel.Application', 'Quit') || die "Oops, cannot start Excel";
Thanks in advance,
