in reply to read-excel.pl: a code sample for Spreadsheet::ParseExcel
I am trying to read an Excel spreadsheet and then input the data into an ora db, all on solaris. When using the Spreadsheet::ParseExcel to get the data from the spreadsheet, I am having trouble extracting the data from cells that are formatted as 'Date'. I have done the conversion to text on win32 using variants, but those packages are only for win32. Does anyone know what methods in Spreadsheet::ParseExcel I need to use to extract as text a value from a cell that is set to be a 'Date' in the excel spreadsheet?
