( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi monks,
I am opening excel application through Win32::OLE & drawing a chart. Then trying to export the chart to PNG file. This works fine when executed directly. But if I Execute it through shell object from ASP throughs an error saying
Win32::OLE(0.1403) error 0x800a03ec in METHOD/PROPERTYGET "Export" at C:\\timken_project\\ li +ne 35
Earlier I had the same problem & had posted it in perlmonks. This problem was solved after installing Office XP with SP1. But now I need to make the same thing working on Office 2003. I tried installing SP1 for Office 2003, but it didn't work. Why is it working on Office XP but not on Office 2003. Though it is not a perl problem any suggestions will be of great help.
The perl code to export the graph is
use Win32::OLE qw(in with); use Win32::OLE::Const 'Microsoft Excel'; use Win32::OLE::Variant; use Win32::OLE::NLS qw(:LOCALE :DATE); use Win32::OLE; use Win32::OLE::Const; $Win32::OLE::Warn = 3; # die on errors... $file = "C:\\testw.txt"; open (TTT, ">$file") || die "error"; print TTT "test"; $filename = "C:\\book1.xls"; $filter = 'PNG'; # can be GIF, JPG, JPEG or PNG $pngnm = "C:\\test"; eval{ my $Excel = Win32::OLE->new('Excel.Application', 'Quit'); # use the Ex +cel application if it's open, otherwise open new my $Book = $Excel->Workbooks->Open( $filename ); # open the file foreach my $Sheet (in $Book->Sheets) { # loop through all sheets foreach my $ChartObj (in $Sheet->ChartObjects) { # loop through all chartobjects in the sheet #$datewk = join("".split(/\s+/, $Date)); $savename = "$pngnm" . ".$filter"; #$savename = "$dirpath\\$pngnm" . ".$filter"; # Write image to PNG file $ChartObj->Chart->Export({ FileName => $savename, FilterName => $filter, Interactive => 0 }); } } $Book->Close({SaveChanges=>0}); }; $err = $@; print TTT $err;
Thanks in advance

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • 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).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
