in reply to Excel vie OLE: Center text on the page?

You can make good looking apps with Perl modules. Tk is a good start. Win32::GUI can make apps with real windows components (I never really liked the look of Tk, but Win32::GUI has a learning curve.) There aren't many good examples of Win32::GUI code though. I don't have access to any of mine on this machine, I may be able to post one later tonight.

A good example of a deliverable compiled application made with perl and running on windows is the AmphetaDesk rss aggregator

    Thanks for the comments. In reply to the cut and paste comment, well, i have been coding in perl for a while now, also using Win::OLE for my excel generation for a few projects. Just havent' come across the code for centering the text like i initially explained. So I guess I was after some useful adivse. Thanks elwarren for the link to AmphetaDesk rss aggregator. Just what i wanted.

      I told you exactly where to find out how to center the text didn't I? Understanding it yourself is a great deal more rewarding than learning by wrote memorization. The only reason I made that comment is because you had not showed us what you tried. In the future, you'll find that posting what you have tried and showing your honest attempts will be very well received. Sorry if I was offputting, but I just wanted to make sure that someone was learning something..
