in reply to Spreadsheet::WriteExcel: How to change order of worksheets?

Do you know the names of the workbooks in advance so you can sort on that? You can store your worksheets in a hash so you can reference them properly later to addataand so on.
my %worksheets; foreach my $w (sort @ws_names_from somewhere){ $worksheets{$w} = $workbook->add_worksheet( $w ); }

    I think this may be the simplest approach. Actually, I need to parse through some of the names to avoid creating inappropriate sheets (the data gets dirty and I end up with strange sheet names like "null") sometimes. Using your hash would allow this better. Thanks.

      Hmmm... Was anyone else wondering what this spreadsheet was about as they read "avoid creating inappropriate sheets (the data gets dirty"?

      I started thinking he was cataloguing "P&L of movies by classification" and had to suppress X-rated titles.

      Too bad the rest of the sentence took all the fun out of it... :)
