Dear Gods

How can I extract a cell value in Excel table using Win32::OLE?

Thanks Apologies for the above,...was posted in an error.

However, I have this code
my $new_book = $Excel->Workbooks->Open("c:\\work\\USA.xls"); my $new_sheet = $new_book->Worksheets("Sheet1"); my $array = $new_sheet->Range("A1:AQ1")->{'Value'}; my $counter = 0; foreach my $ref_array (@$array) { my $col =0; my $row =2; foreach my $col_heads (@$ref_array) { if ($col_heads eq "") { $counter++; next; } print ++$counter. ") $col_heads : ".$new_sheet->Cells($row,$co +unter)->{'Value'}."\n"; } $row++; }
I need to assign the value from this line $new_sheet->Cells($row,$counter)->{'Value'} to a variable. but I get this error;
Win32::OLE(0.1702) error 0x800a03ec in METHOD/PROPERTYGET "Cells" at C:\Perl\EDS\ line 111 Can't use an undefined value as a HASH reference at C:\Perl\ABN AMROS\ line 111.
if I do something like $var =$new_sheet->Cells($row,$counter)->{'Value'} Is there a way please That I can assign to it?

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
