in reply to Converting numbers to Excel Column indices

How is this better than
use Spreadsheet::WriteExcel::Utility; my ($cell) = xl_rowcol_to_cell( 0, $col );
You now have something that's like "AX0" or something. Strip off the zero and you have the column.

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

    Probably isn't. Just hadn't seen any (working) way to do this when I googled/google group'd the topic, and couldn't find a way in the OLE documentation that I'd seen, so I wanted to have something up for others. (And this way I get feedback, to boot.)
