Not sure why you're showing two different code samples. Is it that the latter one works?

In the first code sample:

Try making sure you are indeed opening the file. "Can't call method Worksheets on an undefine value" suggests you haven't opened it. Uncomment the "die on errors" line. And/or check the return code:

my $Book = $Excel->Workbooks->Open("Reten_template.xls") || die "can't + open file";
Then try displaying all the sheets to make sure you have the right name:
for (1..$Book->Worksheets->Count) { print "$_: <", $Book->Worksheets($_)->Name, ">\n"; }

By the way, here's a good way to make sure you have the full path of the file name:

# open Excel file use File::Spec; my $file = File::Spec->rel2abs("Reten_template.xls"); my $Book = $Excel->Workbooks->Open($file) or die "can't open $file: $! +\n";
If you manage to open the Excel file, and you have the right name, then this should work:
my $Sheet = $Book->Worksheets('JUN05');

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
