in reply to Excel events handling

I did have this around somewhere... with Outlook / Exchange, but a quick check in the Win32::OLE docs suggests it is possible. Have a look at Win32::OLE qw (EVENTS).
If I find the beast, I'll update this. Update:While XP is searching my disks, I've found this on Dave Roth's site. It may help you get started.

    I did find it, and updated it somewhat.
    This has been tested against Excel 2002 sp3, on XP
    Note that this script will leave dangling Excel processes in memory if given the chance, and will not end if you manually close Excel while it is running.
    As usual with these things, ActiveState's OLE browser comes in handy, as well as the documentation for Excel's Object model. In particular for identifying the arguments your event handler(s) can potentially receive.
