in reply to VBA to Perl

You may already know the answer to your own question :)

In the line giving the error

$Word->Selection->Text="This is the inserted text";

You are trying to treat $Word->Selection->Text as a variable and perl is complaining that Can't modify non-lvalue subroutine call, which means that it must be a subroutine and not a variable.

Three lines lower down you have

$Word->Selection->Text("This is the inserted text 2");

Same thing, but this time you are using it as a subroutine. Change the error line to match the other one and that error will probably go away.
