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

Hi guys, I'm trying to print a bunch of barcodes, (PNG files I created earlier with GD::Barcode), using Word and the builtin setups for Avery labels. I reckoned this would be easier than getting out a ruler and messing with HTML::Table. The following code creates a page of the appropriately sized labels, but just inserts all the barcodes into the first cell of the table, rather than a separate barcode into each cell. That's where I'm stuck. I don't have time right now to learn the Word object model, and I need the labels today. Can anyone help? TIA Perlcgi
