I have a script that works perfectly fine with .xls file but the same file when in xlsx doesn't work with my script. I use Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX(https://metacpan.org/pod/Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX) to parse the .xlsx file. It works fine until getting the row and col range but doesn't work on get_cell or value of the cell.
my @name; my @details = (); for my $row(0 ..$row_max) { my $ligand_details = {}; for my $col (@required_cols) { warn Dumper($worksheet); my $cell = $worksheet->get_cell($row,$col); warn $cell; my $value = $cell ? $cell->val :''; if($row == 0 ) { $name[$col] = $value; } else { $ligand_details->{$name[$col]} = $value; } } push @details , $ligand_details if (defined $row); } return \@details;
Sorry forgot to add the error message
$VAR1 = [ {}, { '' => '' }, { '' => '' }, { '' => '' }, {
Is there any difference between ParseExcel and ParseXLSX? any suggestions?
