in reply to Win32::OLE and Excel

I do a fair amount of work with Win32::OLE and it's always a good idea to check errors after certain operations. Otherwise, debugging can be quite painful down the road, or if one OLE call dies and snowballs. I use an OLE error checking sub like so:
$obj=Win32::OLE->GetObject("IIS://localhost/W3SVC/1"); &OLEErrChk("Binding to W3SVC1",1)
That way you can also trap common errors and act on them, also.
sub OLEErrChk { my $operation=shift; my $critical=shift; my $errnum=Win32::OLE->LastError; if(!$errnum) { if ($errnum=~/0x80070094/) { print "$operation Failed (in use) trying something..\n"; &Something; } else { print "$operation Failed: $errnum\n"; die if ($critical); } } else {print "$operation was Successful.\n"} }
Hope that helps, Vlad
