Problems? Is your data what you think it is?

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

I wonder, if I may, ask some more about your problem. I have a (small) interest in ParseExcel, as well as WriteExcel, as I recently wrote a script to deliver hundreds of Excel spreadsheets using the WriteExcel module.

You were saying that your customer generates an Excel 4.0 document, and that ParseExcel can't handle it - do you mean that ParseExcel just aborts on the file, or does it returns the kind of problems you were experiencing with OpenOffice calc?

Also, according to the CPAN documentation for ParseExcel, each cell object has a number of fields. They include: Value, Val, Type, Code, Format, Merged, and Rich. Which field were you viewing? Is is possible that if you were dumping:

$oWkC = $oWkS->{Cells}[$iR][$iC]; print $oWkC->{Value};
that maybe the value you're looking for could be in:
print $oWkC->{Val};

Perhaps a contribution of:

use Data::Dumper; print Dumper( $oWkC );
might aid in your question here?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
