( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
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.

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.
