Sorry to confused you but the 1st code gives the the undefine value error and the 2nd one gave me the Win32::OLE=Hash(0x1832544) but I want the actual text or name of the worksheet. Thanks for your input.. I ran your File::Spec code and it gave me the same undefine value error as my 1st set of code.

    Ok, then it looks like you have three problems. You can't open the right file (in the first script), you can't access a sheet by name, and you're surprised to get "Win32::OLE=Hash(0x1832544)" (in the second).

    In the second script, you can open the right file. So, for now, forget about file access and solve the problem of accessing a sheet by name by working from the second script. Have you tried listing the names of the worksheets based on your second script, using the example I gave you?

    Your second script is working normally. print "$Sheet" returns a strange value because $Sheet is an object. To access the sheet's name and print it, use

    print $Sheet->Name, "\n";

    If you continue to have problems, please post your exact code and the output you get.
